Module Monday: Token Insert Entity

24. März 2014 - 18:00

WYSIWYG editing tools make placing media like images into your content easy: it's not too complicated, and even editors who don't know HTML can make it work. What if the media you're using isn't a simple image, though? What if it's an entire Drupal node, or some other sort of entity? With Token Insert Entity, you can place just about anything you want right your content.

Views Query Plugins, Part 4

20. März 2014 - 17:00

Welcome to the fourth part of our series on writing Views query plugins! I hadn't planned on writing a fourth installment, but after a couple of people asked to see how pagers could be implemented, I couldn't resist putting an example together. As a reminder, we have been building a query plugin to interact with Flickr groups.

Bunny Ears Are Fuzzy

14. März 2014 - 11:00

We've been off having fun in Austin, TX at SXSW, talking to the larger tech world about Drupal. To fill the empty hole in your day if we were to skip the podcast, I offer you a dramatic reading of issue number 1326932: Bunny ears are fuzzy: update search test node content to reflect this. Well, it's not terribly dramatic, but it is kind of a fun romp through a real Drupal core issue with a fun twist.

Here is the story of fuzzy bunny ears in Drupal core:

Testing the front end with CasperJS

12. März 2014 - 18:00

After the first few releases of MSNBC, we found we needed a way to check that the core parts of the system were working as expected, and that no regression bugs crept in to the system. We started writing tests to cover the most critical and complex parts of our codebase. Ideally we'd have been writing tests from day one, but sometimes we have to wait until the project matures to justify it to the client.

Creating a Simple Chrome Extension

6. März 2014 - 20:00

As a front-end developer there are a lot of different technologies to keep up with. Whether I’m working with AngularJS or trying to set up Grunt tasks, I find myself having to look up a lot of things. To make that easier on myself, I decided to write Google Chrome extensions to simplify the process. It turns out that’s pretty darn easy! In this article, I’ll show you how to create a simple one that hooks into Chrome's Omnibar to search the Drupal API with a simple keyword.

Module Monday: Synonyms

24. Februar 2014 - 23:00

Drupal's Taxonomy system has offered the ability to store synonyms for almost a decade. When the term 'Chicago' is defined as a category, for example, Drupal allows you to add 'Windy City' as a potential alternative. What Drupal doesn't do, however, is use that synonym anywhere. That's where the Synonyms module comes in.

DareConf Mini Lessons

12. Februar 2014 - 19:00

A few weeks ago I was in London for a few days to attend DareConf Mini, a conference about people skills for the digital workspace. It brings together people from the technology space, the web in particular, but the sessions and lessons really apply to human beings generally. I ended up hearing about DareConf because my friend Karen McGrane spoke at the first DareConf last fall, and it sounded like an amazing experience. When I saw they had a "mini" (one-day) version happening in January I jumped at the chance to check it out.

Module Monday: Term Merge

10. Februar 2014 - 19:00

For nearly a decade, Drupal has offered powerful tagging and categorization features in the form of its Taxonomy module. There's a downside, of course: large pools of content or user-generated content often come with overlapping, inconsistent tags that can clutter your site's navigation and make search tools much less effective. The Term Merge module can help by providing tools to spot and combine duplicate taxonomy terms.
