When I learned I was going to be writing my first Facebook web app, I was pretty excited.  Much like the feeling of writing a Hello World! in a new programming language, I knew I was going to expand my skillset.

Today I needed to add autocomplete to a field that could contain comma separated usernames and obviously the requirements included autocomplete. I thought this problem must be solved already in the ecosystem and sure, Views has it already. So I have added '#autocomplete_path' => 'admin/views/ajax/autocomplete/user', '#element_validate' => array('...

Behat is a wonderful tool for automatic testing. It allows you to write your user stories and scenarios in proper English, which is then parsed by Behat and transformed to a set of clicks or other operations that mimic a real user.

Drupal 8's expanded and broadly-used Entity API extends even to Contact Forms, and recently I needed to create a contact form programmatically as part of Honeypot's test suite. Normally, you can export a contact form as part of your site configuration, then when it's imported in a different site/environment, it will be set up simply and easily. However, if you need to create a contact form...
