Actually, we never left. We didn’t stop building Drupal sites, even through the long release cycle. However, we did move our company website, activelamp.com, off of Drupal about 18 months ago. Our company site had been built on Drupal since the Drupal 4.7 days. That was back when it started to become uncool to write and maintain your own home-grown CMS. I eventually found Drupal, ditched my...

DrupalCon NOLA migration sprint summary DrupalCon NOLA is over - perhaps too soon for those of us who love this great city, or perhaps just soon enough for those who have given Drupal and the city of New Orleans every last ounce of energy they had this past week. We had a very productive week sprinting for migration - it may not be reflected in the number of commits made by the end...

For years I have been hearing about DrupalCon from Brice and Amitai. Every six months they would send me a massive group photo and challenged me to locate them among the crazy mustaches, viking helmets, and identical t-shirts. Needless to say, I failed every time and the number of people in those pictures grew every year. I’m also happy to say that that last group photo - from a week ago -...

Many modules have been in flux during the early stages of Drupal 8's development. Few modules have changed as much as Pathauto, which the vast majority of Drupal sites use to control their URLs. In this tutorial, I'll show you the current way to use Pathauto with your Drupal 8 site.

Last year around this time, I wrote that The Big Reverse of Web would force a major re-architecture of the web to bring the right information, to the right person, at the right time, in the right context. I believe that conversational interfaces like Amazon Echo are further proof that the big reverse is happening. New user experience and distribution platforms only come along every 5-10 years,...

I've been a big proponent of using Flexbox for a while, especially since hearing Zoe Mickley Gillenwater speaking about it at Smashing Conference Oxford 2014. In particular, I use justify-content: space-between a lot. But one issue with it is what happens in the last row. If the number of child items doesn't divide nicely into the number of items per row, there will be a big gap between them, as...

Have you ever try to get data from your libraries and/or breakpoints in Drupal 8 ? Drupal 8 core does not provide a UI for this information.  And sometimes is nice to have the ability to know your data from the UI. Instead of trying to hunt down all that information by searching many files. For this reason, I decide to write few modules that will allow you to get some of the libraries...

I went to Drupalcon NOLA and was looking for a new way to contribute, since there've been a lot of discussion about the front-end part, and after reading @dries blog post Turning Drupal outside-in I started looking at the field UI. I stumbled upon the core issue titled The options under the Add field drop-down describe the data you want to store, but the user was imagining the widget it would...
