As per Mary Meeker’s Internet Trends Report 2015, India “appears to be at internet penetration growth inflection”, as the top country in internet user additions per year. Mobile is huge here, relative to other countries. The trend is similar across the rest of Asia.
Yesteray I went off on an experiment with one of our own Drupal sites. For some years now I've maintaned the web site http://www.uppitywis.org - it's a political blog about progressive politics in Wisconsin. It's gone thorugh a lot of different configurations and life stages. At the moment it's built on a pretty straightforward build of Panopoly,. In the most recent version I have taken it out of Varnish, and it runs behind Cloudflare.
In an attempt to eat our own Dogfood as a Cloudlflare host, I though I'd make a stab at making Cloudflare cache the entire site, rather than just the static assets. You can do this in the free Cloudflare implementation by setting up a rule that says "cache everything" and putting it in with your three allowed rules. I've also set up rules to not cache admin* and user* and have put those ahead of the cache everything rule - so that admin functions are not cached.
Today and tomorrow you can come and see us at the WalkHub booth at OSCON!
So, what's a web product without a proper RESTful API? We think it is a must have in the connected world nowadays. So with help of the Services module we build the RESTful web services module for Drupal Social intranet OpenLucius.
So now you can connect all your external apps, go headless!Features
In this Drupalize.Me interview, we talk with Kate Marshalkina, senior developer at SystemSeed, based in Moscow, Russia. This interview is part of an ongoing series where we talk with a variety of people in the Drupal community about the work they do. Each interview focuses on a particular Drupal role and this interview with Kate focuses on the developer role.
Drupal is used for a myriad of different kinds of websites. This week, Robert begins a two week series with "Build a Drupal Corporate Website".
During this class, Robert talks about planning, content types, modules, themes and everything you might need for this kind of site. You'll build a blog, personnel department, a views slideshow and more for the fictitious corporation, BoardGames Ltd.
Since 2012, PreviousNext has been developing and maintaining the aGov distribution for Drupal 7. aGov provides a means for Australian Government organisations to meet their accessibility and security obligations with free and open-source software hosted on the platform of their choice.
In the last few weeks we have been working on the Drupal 8 version, and are happy to announce today the first Alpha release!
In this post we share some of our experiences developing a Drupal 8 distribution.
In Drupal 8, the process of adding a new date format is substantially simpler than in Drupal 7.
In Drupal 7, there were several steps involved.
In Drupal 8, the process is substantially simpler:
Comments were one of the more basic features in Drupal 7. There was only type of comment and you had very limited modification and moderation options.
In Drupal 8, comments are vastly better. Here are 5 ways that comments have changed and improved:
Drupal relies on pluggable cache backends to store cache data such as Memcache, Wincache, Database, etc. The default storage backend is the Database, but Drupal being a very cache intensive application (even more in Drupal 8) you want to get better performance by using faster backends that will yield lower latency and scale better.
Moving caching away from the database is done by replacing the caching services by ones that do not rely on the database. You define the services in your services.yml file and the binaries routing in settings.php:
- How to use NetPhp
- Drupal on IIS or Apache
- Setting up Code Syntax Higlighting with Drupal
- Fixing slow queries and database deadlocks in Drupal without PHP profiling tools
- Making namespaced callbacks work in Drupal 7 (without hacking core and with bound parameters)
- Deploying changing module dependencies with Drupal
- Bypassing Form Validations and Required Fields in Drupal: the BFV module.
- Adding native JSON storage support in Drupal 7 or how to mix RDBM with NoSQL
- PDF Generation in PHP
- Database Transactions in Drupal
The neat thing is, if the developers that worked on GitHub use the same email address in GitHub and Drupal.org, Drupal will credit them with all the commits as if they originally made their commits in Drupal.org!Tags:
