Chapter Three: Goals First, Then Tactics

lun, 06/07/2015 - 20:24

When I kick off a client project, two of my first questions are:



  • What are your project goals?

  • What are your project tactics?

Most of the time, my clients define their goals as tactics. For example, “I want a beautiful site with a great user experience.” While this is a useful thing to identify, it’s not a goal. It’s a tactic.



What purpose does a beautiful site serve? Does beauty drive revenue? Why improve the user experience? Doex UX cultivate positive emotions towards your business?



Asking the “why" behind the tactics can help reveal the true goals of the redesign. It’s easy to define the purpose of a project as “I need my site to look better” because it’s the most obvious thing to be improve. However, there is a missed opportunity in looking only skin deep.

Dcycle: Catching watchdog errors in your Simpletests

lun, 06/07/2015 - 20:04

If you are using a site deployment module, and running simpletests against it in your continuous integration server using drush test-run, you might come across Simpletest output like this in your Jenkins console output:

Starting test MyModuleTestCase. [ok] ... WD rules: Unable to get variable some_variable, it is not [error] defined. ... MyModuleTestCase 9 passes, 0 fails, 0 exceptions, and 7 debug messages [ok] No leftover tables to remove. [status] No temporary directories to remove. [status] Removed 1 test result. [status] Group Class Name

In the above example, the Rules module is complaining that it is misconfigured. You will probably be able to confirm this by installing a local version of your site along with rules_ui and visiting the rules admin page.

Here, it is rules which is logging a watchdog error, but it could by any module.

However, this will not necessarily cause your test to fail (see 0 fails), and more importantly, your continuous integration script will not fail either.

At first you might find it strange that your console output shows [error], but that your script is still passing. You script probably looks something like this:

set -e drush test-run MyModuleTestCase

So: drush test-run outputs an [error] message, but is still exiting with the normal exit code of 0. How can that be?

Well, your test is doing exactly what you are asking of it: it is asserting that certain conditions are met, but you have never explicitly asked it to fail when a watchdog error is logged within the temporary testing environment. This is normal: consider a case where you want to assert that a given piece of code logs an error. In your test, you will create the necessary conditions for the error to be logged, and then you will assert that the error has in fact been logged. In this case your test will fail if the error has not been logged, but will succeed if the error has been logged. This is why the test script should not fail every time there is an error.

But in our above example, we have no way of knowing when such an error is introduced; to ensure more robust testing, let's add a teardown function to our test which asserts that no errors were logged during any of our tests. To make sure that the tests don't fail when errors are expected, we will allow for that as well.

Add the following code to your Simpletest (if you have several tests, consider creating a base test for all of them to avoid reusing code):

/** * {inheritdoc} */ function tearDown() { // See http://dcycleproject.org/blog/96/catching-watchdog-errors-your-simpletests $num_errors = $this->getNumWatchdogEntries(WATCHDOG_ERROR); $expected_errors = isset($this->expected_errors) ? $this->expected_errors : 0; $this->assertTrue($num_errors == $expected_errors, 'Expected ' . $expected_errors . ' watchdog errors and got ' . $num_errors . '.'); parent::tearDown(); } /** * Get the number of watchdog entries for a given severity or worse * * See http://dcycleproject.org/blog/96/catching-watchdog-errors-your-simpletests * * @param $severity = WATCHDOG_ERROR * Severity codes are listed at https://api.drupal.org/api/drupal/includes%21bootstrap.inc/group/logging_severity_levels/7 * Lower numbers are worse severity messages, for example an emergency is 0, and an * error is 3. * Specify a threshold here, for example for the default WATCHDOG_ERROR, this function * will return the number of watchdog entries which are 0, 1, 2, or 3. * * @return * The number of watchdog errors logged during this test. */ function getNumWatchdogEntries($severity = WATCHDOG_ERROR) { $results = db_select('watchdog') ->fields(NULL, array('wid')) ->condition('severity', $severity, '<=') ->execute() ->fetchAll(); return count($results); }

Now, all your tests which have this code will fail if there are any watchdog errors in it. If you are actually expecting there to be errors, then at some point in your test you could use this code:

$this->expected_errors = 1; // for example Tags: blogplanet

A Small Web Firm: Connecting Tableau to Drupal on Pantheon

lun, 06/07/2015 - 19:29
Data-driven content management Although creating, searching for, updating, and publishing content in Drupal is a snap, understanding and making decisions based on that content can be challenging. Questions like, "What are the most viewed, untranslated case studies?" or "Does an accelerated blogging cadence increase page views?" are difficult or impossible to answer within Drupal alone. Though the data that could help answer those questions may live in Drupal, content editors or administrators are unlikely to find answers on their own because the information is made available, if at all, through complex UIs only understood by Drupal site builders, developers, or power users. This problem--where those most knowledgeable about some dataset are only able to ask questions of that data by proxy through a specialist--extends far beyond just content management in Drupal. Tableau (my employer) takes pride in helping solve this type of problem for organizations the world over, and because Drupal runs on pervasive database technologies like MySQL and PostgreSQL, we also happen to work well with Drupal: just add database credentials, connect, and go. Container cloud complications If you run Drupal on Pantheon, you may be familiar with (and likely benefit from) their container-based architecture. The efficiency and agility that containers provide are what allow Pantheon to offer development and test environments at scale. Containers also enable Pantheon to offer you highly available (distributed) and horizontally elastic applications by default. Although these features are a Drupal developer's dream, the underlying technology complicates things for data-driven content managers. When Pantheon updates servers, migrates endpoints, or does other maintenance work transparent to end-users, database connection details change, breaking Tableau's connection to the Drupal database. There are a few options for working around this problem, each with its drawbacks:
  • Send out updated credentials whenever they break: just instruct every Tableau user to e-mail you when the dashboard they built stops updating; you can find the new credentials and send them back. Rinse and repeat for every user with access and every site: welcome to your new full-time job.
  • Give content editors access to the Pantheon dashboard: train them to navigate to the specific environment you want them to connect to, suss out the MySQL details, and be sure not to hit that "delete live site" button you just gave them access to...
  • Use Pantheon's CLI to replicate the DB locally on a schedule: on the whole, not a bad option, but what happens when the DB server goes offline or your replication script starts failing? Didn't you go with Pantheon to get out of the infrastructure management and monitoring game in the first place?
Introducing the Pantheon Switchboard We, being a data-driven marketing organization who coincidentally has a large Tableau installation base, and one that happens to host many Drupal sites on Pantheon, know the struggle well. To that end, we've developed and open sourced the Pantheon Switchboard, a Docker image that mashes up the Pantheon command line interface and MySQL proxy, allowing Tableau users (both those connecting ad-hoc using the desktop client as well as those scheduling extracts with our cloud or on-premise servers) to reliably and seamlessly connect to MySQL databases hosted on Pantheon, despite those periodic database connection detail changes. The Switchboard's container approach attempts to strike the right balance between infrastructure requirements and the type of self-service simplicity that Tableau users expect. Complete details on installation and usage are available on the project's README. Deploying to Google Compute Engine For production use, we're enamored with the simplicity of deploying containers on GCE using their Container-Optimized VM images; feel free to use this as a recipe to get started: # switchboard-manifest.yml version: v1 kind: Pod spec: containers: - name: my-drupal-site-proxy image: tableaumkt/pantheon-mysql-proxy imagePullPolicy: Always ports: - name: mysql containerPort: 3306 hostPort: 11337 protocol: TCP env: - name: PROXY_DB_UN value: un_to_connect_to_drupal_proxy - name: PROXY_DB_PW value: pw_to_connect_to_proxy_here - name: PANTHEON_SITE value: my-drupal-site - name: PANTHEON_ENV value: test - name: PANTHEON_EMAIL value: email-w-access-to-dashboard@example.com - name: PANTHEON_PASS value: password_for_email_here - name: my-wp-site-proxy image: tableaumkt/pantheon-mysql-proxy imagePullPolicy: Always ports: - name: mysql containerPort: 3306 hostPort: 11338 protocol: TCP env: - name: PROXY_DB_UN value: un_to_connect_to_wp_proxy_here - name: PROXY_DB_PW value: pw_to_connect_to_proxy_here - name: PANTHEON_SITE value: my-wp-site - name: PANTHEON_ENV value: dev - name: PANTHEON_EMAIL value: email-w-access-to-dashboard@example.com - name: PANTHEON_PASS value: password_for_email_here # - Additional containers/proxies here. restartPolicy: Always dnsPolicy: Default Then spin up a VM in Google's Cloud with their CLI, using the above manifest as a template: gcloud compute instances create pantheon-switchboard-test \ --image container-vm \ --metadata-from-file google-container-manifest=switchboard-manifest.yml \ --zone us-central1-a \ --machine-type f1-micro After which you should:
  1. Provision a permanent IP and assign it to the VM (or use the VM's ephemeral IP for testing)
  2. Set up network rules to only allow connections from a specific range of IPs (like your corporate network or if you use Tableau Online, its IP), and to the ports you specified in your manifest, and optionally,
  3. Route a domain to the VM's IP.
Once wired up, you should be able to connect to your Pantheon databases using the PROXY_DB_UN, PROXY_DB_PW, and host port specified in your manifest, along with the IP (or domain) you configured in your Google Cloud console. Get Started

Microserve: DrupalCamp Bristol 2015 Wrap-up

lun, 06/07/2015 - 18:40

After nearly a year in the planning, Bristol's inaugural DrupalCamp has finally come and gone!

There have been murmors about a Bristol camp or event for a number of years and it's so rewarding to see the whole South West Drupal community coming together to make it a reality.

A few of my personal highlights were: Paul Johnson's Business day GOSH showcase; Matt Jukes recounting his numerous and often hilarious escapades trying to bring modern digital tools and techniques to ONS; and a very thought-provoking accessibility talk and demonstration by Léonie Watson.

There were also two very polished case studies to round-off the event, given by DrupalCamp Bristol committee chair Rick Donohoe and Ringo Moss.

We at Microserve have really relished the opportunity to help make DC Bristol a reality, and are very much looking forward to starting work on DrupalCamp Bristol 2016!

We will be following up with a detailed perspective on DrupalCamp Bristol from an organisers point of view, as well as a camp wash-up from the whole committee.

KatteKrab: CCR at OSCON

dim, 05/07/2015 - 03:11
Sunday, July 5, 2015 - 11:11

I've given a "Constructive Conflict Resolution" talk twice now. First at DrupalCon Amsterdam, and again at DrupalCon Los Angeles. It's something I've been thinking about since joining the Drupal community working group a couple of years ago. I'm giving the talk again at OSCON in a couple of weeks. But this time, it will be different. Very different. Here's why.

After seeing tweets about Gina Likins keynote at ApacheCon earlier this year I reached out to her to ask if she'd be willing to collaborate with me about Conflict Resolution in open source, and ended up inviting her to co-present with me at OSCON. We've been working together over the past couple of weeks. It's been a joy, and a learning experience! I'm really excited about where the talk is heading now. If you're going to be at OSCON, please come along. If you're interested, please follow our tweets tagged #osconCCR.

Jen Krieger from Opensource.com interviewed Gina and I about our talk - here's the article: Teaching open source communities about conflict resolution

In the meantime, do you have stories of conflict in Open Source Communities to share?

  • How were they resolved?
  • Were they intractable?
  • Do the wounds still fester?
  • Was positive change an end result?
  • Do you have resources for dealing with conflict?

Wuinfo: How we come with CYouTube Module

sam, 04/07/2015 - 14:07

Recently, I was working with a team on the project for country music television (CMT) at Corus Entertainment. We need to synchronize videos from two different resources. One of them is Youtube. There are over 200 youtube channels on CMT. We need pull videos from all those channels regularly. By doing that, videos that published on Youtube will be available on CMT automatically. So, in-house editors do not need to spend time uploading the videos.

We store videos in file entities. Videos are from different sources. All imported videos act same across the site. Among the imported video, only their mime type is different if two videos are from the different source. Each imported video is a file entity on CMT. For the front end, we built views pages and blocks based on those video file entities.

We have some videos imported from another source: MPX thePlatform. We used "Media: thePlatform mpx" as main module to import and update those videos. To deal with customized video fields, we contributed a module "Media: thePlatform MPX entity fields sync" to work with the main module.

After we have done with MPX thePlatform videos, we have experience of handling videos import. How do we import YouTube videos now? We have over 200 channels on YouTube.

We gave up to make it work with Feeds module. At first, we planned to use feeds module. Since Google have just deprecated their YouTube API V2.0, Old RSS channels feed is no longer working. Thanks to the community, we found a module called feeds_youtube. The module's 7.x-3.x branch works with YouTube latest API V3.0. So, we have a feeds parser. We still need a feeds processor. Thanks to the community again, we found feeds_files module. We installed those modules and their dependent modules. We configure feeds module and spent couple days. It did work. At the end, we decide to build a lightweight custom module that can do everything from download YouTube JSON data to create local file entities. Each video imported from channels will have a uplink to an artist or a hosting show.

What do we want from the module? We want it to check multiple YouTube channels. If there is a new video uploaded in a channel, we create a associated file entity on CMT. In the created entity, we have some the metadata from YouTube saved to the entity fields. In that entity, we also save local metadata. Local metadata likes a show, artist information. We want the module to handle over 200 and maybe thousands of channels in the future. We want the module to handle the tasks gracefully and not burn out the system when importing thousands of videos. It sounds to be quite intimidating but not really.

We ended up building a module and contributed it to Drupal.org. It is called Youtube Channel Videos Sync V3. Here is how we come up with the module.

First of all, we gathered a list of channels name. We also collected relevant local metadata like artist id or show id. Then, we send a request to YouTube and get a list of videos for each channel. Then, for each video, we create a system queue task with video's data and the local metadata. At last, we built queue processor and created the video file entity one by one. See the diagram below for the complete process.

A little more technical detail below:

How we get a list of YouTube channels name and the local metadata for the channels? In the module configuration page, we set the fields used to store the channel name. In CMT, we have the field in both show and artist nodes. The module went through the nodes and get an array of channel name and the node id with they content type. Array like this:

  array(
   'channel name' => array(
     'field_artist_referenced' => array('nid',...),
    ),

How to configure YouTube metadata fields into entity fields? On the module configuration page, we can set up mapping between the YouTube metadata field and local entity field.

In the imported videos, how to set the local artist and show information? The module has a hook where a custom module can implement to provide that information. Like the array above, "field_artist_referenced" is a field machine name of video entity. "array('nid')" is the value for that field. By doing that, the imported video has an entity reference pointing back to the artist or show node. One of the best ways to set up a relation is to have an entity reference in the video entity that point to the artist node or entity.

That is the overall process the module follow to import thousands of videos from YouTube.

Ryan Szrama: Publishing Content on Relative Dates Using Rules in Drupal 7

sam, 04/07/2015 - 05:50

A friend of mine is a DUI lawyer who uses a Drupal site for content marketing and lead generation, managed by my friends at EverConvert. They quickly identified the weekend as the best time for the website to directly appeal to visitors who found the site after a Friday or Saturday night arrest. In addition to live chat, they decided to alter the site's appearance by publishing content only during these times that contains large, direct calls to action.

Fortunately, Drupal provides the tools to build this with nary a line of code.

Introducing the Rules Scheduler

The primary module you'll use to create something similar is Rules with its Rules Scheduler sub-module. Most purpose built content scheduling modules that I've seen allow you to set absolute dates for pieces of content to be published or unpublished. However, you wouldn't want to have to enter in every single weekend date to get that content published at the right times. Fortunately, Rules Scheduler allows you to schedule arbitrary actions using relative date strings (in addition to any other format supported by strtotime()).

Before we dive into the configuration I proposed to them, you should understand that the Rules module basically adds a GUI based scripting language to the back end of Drupal. In addition to configuring actions to be performed after certain events when a set of conditions are met, you can create Rules components that are essentially subroutines that can be directly invoked by Rules (or code) without being triggered by events.

To setup a Rules Scheduler based content publishing schedule, you have to create two Rules components: one will publish the piece of content and schedule it to be unpublished on a relative date (i.e. "next Monday"), while the other will unpublish the piece of content and schedule it to be published on a relative date (i.e. "next Friday"). Another Rule will need to react to content being created or updated to initiate the publishing schedule.

Using Fields to Avoid "Magic" Behavior

One of the keys to building a maintainable Drupal site (or module) is to ensure that every "automated" action is explicitly enabled. In the early days of Drupal Commerce development, I adopted an approach to some module behaviors where a feature just automatically worked if certain conditions were met (e.g. the representation of attribute fields on Add to Cart forms). "Neat!" I thought, until I realized that it was difficult to document and even more difficult to ensure users knew to look for said documentation. Much better to include explicit user interface components to enable functionality.

In the case of a scheduling system, you wouldn't want to build the site to just automatically enter every piece of content, or even every piece of content of a certain type, into the publishing pattern. Your client, a.k.a. the end user, really expects (and needs) to see an indicator on a form that submitting it will lead to a desired outcome.

For my friend's site, my recommendation was simply to add a Boolean field using a checkbox widget to the relevant content type reading, "Schedule this content to be published on Fridays and unpublished on Mondays." If the site required more publishing patterns than just the weekend pattern, I would've used a List (text) field with radio buttons or a select list identifying the different available publishing patterns.

Building the Scheduling System in Rules

Working with Rules is fairly simple if you can write out long hand what it is you're trying to accomplish. Considering all of our constraints here, we need a set of rules that accomplishes the following:

  1. When a call to action is created or saved with the scheduling checkbox checked, delete any scheduled tasks related to the content. (This is possible because Rules Scheduler lets you assign an identifier to scheduled rules, so identifying our scheduled tasks with the node ID will allow us to delete the tasks when needed in the future.)
  2. If the call to action that was just saved isn't published, schedule it to be published next Friday.
  3. If the call to action that was just saved is published, schedule it to be unpublished next Monday.
  4. When a call to action is automatically published on Friday, schedule it to be unpublished next Monday.
  5. When a call to action is automatically unpublished on Monday, schedule it to be published next Friday.

The first three items will be accomplished through a single rule reacting to two events, "After saving new content of type Call to action" and "After updating existing content of type Call to action." The rule will first delete any scheduled task for the piece of content and then it will invoke two rules components that will schedule the appropriate task based on whether or not the call to action was published.

The final two items will be accomplished through rules components that perform the necessary action and then schedule the appropriate task. As mentioned above, we'll use relative time strings ("next monday" and "next friday") and choose task identifiers that include the call to action node IDs ("unpublish-call-to-action-[node:nid]" and [publish-call-to-action-[node:nid]" respectively).

Give it a whirl!

It only took me about 10 minutes to create and test the rules based on the specification above, but if you aren't familiar with the Rules UI, it could take much longer. I believe Rules is worth learning (we built Drupal Commerce around it, after all), but there's something to be said for ready made examples.

I've attached to this post a Features export of the content type and related rules configurations for you to try on your own site. Give Scheduled Calls to Action a whirl and let me know how it works for you in the comments!

(Note: to see the rules configurations and scheduled tasks, enable the Rules UI, Views, and Views UI modules if they aren't already enabled on your site.)

[11:50am] GaborHojtsy: Fabianx-screen: see above
[11:51am] berdir: and it's not a blocker
[11:51am] berdir: because right now it just kills page/smart cache
[11:51am] berdir: so if you use that, you are not seeing a cached page anyway
[11:51am] berdir: Fabianx-screen: we have a cache context for the content language
[11:52am] xjm: the youtube video has like a 20 second delay

[11:55am] xjm: :P
[11:56am] xjm: GaborHojtsy: is there any way to increase the number of participants or to include the chat sidebar in the video?
[11:56am] WimLeers1: catch: Can you leave a comment on https://www.drupal.org/node/2512718 with your POV/conclusion — sounds like you have the clearest grasp on this/completest view on the likely solution.

[11:56am] WimLeers1: xjm: chat is here, we don't use Google Hangout's chat sidebar
[11:56am] GaborHojtsy: xjm: the chat window is THIS ONE
[11:57am] larowlan: xjm: the chat one is lost soon as the call ends
[11:57am] xjm: WimLeers: GaborHojtsy: so the thing is that listening to the video it's very hard to figure out which issues people are discussing, even with Gábor's notes
[11:57am] larowlan: xjm: you can get more than 10 in the call if you have a corporate account I think
[11:57am] WimLeers: larowlan: Gábor copy/pastes this chat to the g.d.o post with the link of the recording
[11:57am] • larowlan nods
[11:57am] WimLeers: that was meant for xjm, oops
[11:58am] GaborHojtsy: xjm: the trick is if we would start on time, then my chat log shows timestamps which are sync with the video
[11:58am] GaborHojtsy: xjm: we have a few minute delay between the video start and the top of the hour
[11:58am] catch: WimLeers: yep will do.
[11:59am] GaborHojtsy: xjm: because people arrive later basically :)
[11:59am] WimLeers: catch++
[12:01pm] GaborHojtsy: xjm: its also hard to get Druplicon in google hangouts — as in impossible ÉD
[12:01pm] GaborHojtsy: xjm: and there was some interest for people watching to be able to follow links WHILE the meeting was on
[12:02pm] xjm: GaborHojtsy: but it doesn't work -- I'm trying that right now -- the delay is too big
[12:02pm] WimLeers: alexpott: regarding in title: https://api.drupal.org/comment/26#comment-26
[12:03pm] GaborHojtsy: xjm: well, then at least the Druplicon advantage is there :)
[12:03pm] GaborHojtsy: xjm: I am happy to use some way to get the comments in if there is one
[12:04pm] GaborHojtsy: xjm: I am not sure it helps if eg. someone shares their screen with an IRC client throughout the video
[12:04pm] GaborHojtsy: xjm: the links are not clickable either
[12:04pm] xjm: GaborHojtsy: shannon did that for the meeting we had 2y ago -- though the same problem with links not being clickable
[12:04pm] GaborHojtsy: xjm: but that may be a workaround

Modules Unraveled: 141 Using the Wysiwyg Fields Module to Use any Field Type as a CKEditor Plugin with Stuart Clark - Modules Unraveled Podcast

ven, 03/07/2015 - 06:53
Published: Thu, 07/02/15Download this episodeWysiwyg Fields
  • What is the Wysiwyg Fields module?
    • Discussed three years ago on episode 35… Finally a stable release :|
  • Why did it take so long to release a stable?
    • Life
  • What’s new since we talked about it last time?
    • Re-architected, focusing on splitting out major components into separate modules for re-usability and sustainability:
      • Field Tokens
      • Token replace AJAX
    • As well as leveraging existing modules insto to re-inventing the wheel:
      • Icon API
      • Token filter
    • Now based on CKEditor module instead of Wyswiyg API module.
    • Beta release available and it works!
  • What types of fields can be used?
  • Is the field still a separate field, but just inserted into the wysiwyg field? (So, if I were to disable the module would it be outside the wysiwyg text area?)
  • Can you use something like Panels to display the field in another region?
  • What kind of control do we have over the output of the field? Can it be styled and positioned with css? Or is it fully controlled by the content editor when they create the content?
  • Does this integrate with the Quick Edit module to provide the quick edit feature like Drupal 8?
  • How does this relate to Media or Scald?
Use Cases
  • Insert Images:
    • Using ImageField widget
    • Using Media widget
    • Using Picture formatter for responsive images
  • Insert Text
    • For quotes that can be referenced via a View
    • For headlines that can be used in a ToC view embedded in a region on the same page
  • Insert Entity Reference
    • Insert user inside a form
  • Insert scald atom with atom reference field.
  • Insert youtube field
  • Insert Embedded Tweets with a textfield and a Custom Formatter.
  • Insert multiple field items at once
  • Insert all the fields
  • Paragraphs?
  • Use with Custom Formatters to allow updating formatting without need of re-editing content (Adjust Picture responsive image styles on redesign, etc).
  • Newspaper site
    • Ad - Entity Reference field. Then select which ad, and which view mode.
      • Every time the ad is updated (image) it’s updated everywhere it’s displayed inline
    • Views - List events related to that content.
    • Table Field - Tabular data
Questions from Twitter
  • Jarkko Oksanen
    Is there an example video somewhere online we can see the functionality?
