Module Monday: Node Revision Delete

Drupal Fire - Mon, 07/21/2014 - 20:00

Lullabot (via DrupalFire)

Drupal's revisioning system is really powerful. Out of the box we can keep track of changes in our content and restore to a previous version with just a couple clicks. However, on large sites with a lot of activity in their content, revisions can grow exponentially up to a size that it can compromise performance and disk storage. The Node Revision Delete module can help us to keep this under control.

An open letter to conference organizers

Drupal Fire - Sun, 07/20/2014 - 07:51

Larry Garfield (via DrupalFire)

Let's be honest, I spend a lot of time at conferences. Over the past 2 years or so I've averaged more than one speaking engagement at a conference per month, including a half-dozen keynotes. I've also helped organize several conferences, mostly DrupalCamps and DrupalCons. I'd estimate conferences make up more than a third of my professional activity. (Incidentally, if someone can tell me how the hell that happened I'd love to hear it; I'm still confused by it.)

As a result I've gotten to see a wide variety of conference setups, plans, crazy ideas, and crazy wonderful ideas. There are many wonderful things that conference organizers do, or do differently, and of course plenty of things that they screw up.

I want to take this opportunity to share some of that experience with the organizers of various conferences together, rather than in one-off feedback forms that only one conference will see. To be clear, while I definitely think there are areas that many conferences could improve I don't want anyone to take this letter as a slam on conference organizers. These are people who put in way more time than you think, often without being paid to do so, out of a love for the community, for learning and sharing, and for you. Whatever else you may think about a conference or this list, the next time you're at a conference take a moment to find one of the organizers and give them a huge hug and/or firm handshake (as is their preference) and say thank you for all the work that they do.

Iconsland – A Perfect Place to Get All Kinds of Icons

Tutorial Lounge Articles - Sat, 07/19/2014 - 06:12

Icons have always been an important part of graphic and web designing that we all know.  Icons are little magical graphics that have the specialty to represent and support thoughts, ideas or concepts without having to say so much about it. Icon enhances design’s visibility by adding certain natural flavor in design and speed up the design making process. However, the question many of us designers ask these days is that where can we find good set of icons?

Right icon is what makes the design perfect and it was not easy to find an appropriate set of icons for one of my design project until a friend has told me about Icons-Land. It has been dawn to me that Icons-Land is not small website with few bundles of icon, it is rather a complete icon resource empowered through creative skills and expertise of professional designers. The quality of icons available on Icons-Land is undoubtedly premium.

The most exciting thing about Icons-Land is that it offers awesome Individual icons with abundant choices. The option to choose desired icons is extended to Emoticons, software icons and Hardware icons as well. The technological advancements in the field of 3D have enabled professionals at Icons-land to reflect these developments in their icon designs. Today, Icons-Land has all icons in 3D which make them sparkling and super attractive. It is true that good things come with price, however; it is not the case at Icons-Land because the icons are free from royalty.

If all of the above things did not excite you then you should be excited to know that Icons-Land is not the place only for ready-made icons but the options of customized icons are also possible for nosy and demanding clients. I was overwhelmed to know this because as per my knowledge there are not many who provide this kind of service.

One another aspect I appreciate the most about Icons-Land is that they have created a very friendly and easy to navigate website. There is no design fuss and bombardment of icons coming to your face. It is very sleek and simple designed website which offers good buying options. It means the choice is yours either to opt for single icon or grab the whole package. Icons-Land has understood the need of cost effective and affordable icons for freelancers as they cannot buy expensive design elements. So, Icons-Land offers you bunch of cool and cost-efficient icons.

The Best Way to Learn Programming for Beginners

Metal Toad Media (via DrupalFire)

What is the best way to learn programming for beginners? I've spent a lot of time over the past 12 months thinking about this question, and as our firm has grown steadily from 19 to 39 people, I've reflected on what makes the difference between the people who walk in the door and knock things out of the park and those who struggle. Since my blog post on How to Become a Web Developer I have a number of people who regularly ask me this very question, I'd like to share my thoughts and observations.

The Alley Effect

Drupal Fire - Thu, 07/17/2014 - 02:00

Lullabot (via DrupalFire)

I had a really great meal today at a new restaurant called Denden Café Asiana in Providence. It's kind of out of the way – on a historical residential street that doesn't get a lot of drive-by traffic. It's not near any stores. It's kind of hidden away. I found out about it because it had amazing reviews on Yelp. I got a parking spot right out front. The food was amazing and it wasn't particularly expensive. I had a great meal in a nice little restaurant.

Drupal 8 progress from my / MongoDB perspective: update #27

Drupal Fire - Tue, 07/15/2014 - 06:53

Károly Négyesi (via DrupalFire)

There hasn't been an update for some time now; things have quieted down a bit, I am mostly just writing drivers now (and coach people on migrate). MongoDB module caught up with the latest config changes and so the module works again. Migrate bugfixing moves along steadily with more and more people actually trying it and fixing bugs, hurray! Blocks now get placed more sensibly, there's steady progress on D6->D8 CCK Single On/Off Checkbox, Checkboxes/Radio buttons, and Select formatters, also node authors in more interesting cases are broken (In Drupal 6, the node.uid and the node_revision.uid can be different). The first step for migration groups is ready. This is the stepping stone for Drupal 7 migrations because quite a few migration will need to be in both the Drupal 6 and the Drupal 7 group. It is also quite important for contrib -- now contrib will be able to just add in a migration YAML that this migration belongs to the Drupal 6 group and it'll run along with core, as easy as that.

Our favorite meta issue convert SQL queries to entitity queries issue is almost finished, opens the door for multilingual / performance enhancements and of course MongoDB :)

I have discussed with Crell how to define a standard mechanism for backend-aware service overrides. As usual, this is good for core because it allows MySQL and PostgreSQL specific drivers but also at the same time it will help MongoDB as well: currently the MongoDB module handles the service overrides but it's an all-or-nothing thing. With this issue, you'll be able to mix various storage backends as you want in a standard fashion.

Finally, even if it's not directly MongoDB related, the issue to switch on twig autoescape is almost done too -- this will make Drupal 8 more secure, even custom modules and custom themes will be easier to write in a secure fashion. Hopefully this will make Drupal 8 an even more appealing offer.

Module Monday: Honeypot

Drupal Fire - Tue, 07/15/2014 - 02:00

Lullabot (via DrupalFire)

Fighting spam is an ongoing cat and mouse game as site owners come up with protections against spam, and spammers come up with increasingly impressive ways to bypass those protections. Solutions like Mollom have been popular in recent years, however Mollom is tied to an external service and only works while that service is running smoothly. Additionally, it costs money if your site has a lot of traffic. CAPTCHA challenges are also a popular solution, but they have accessibility problems -- and automated tools are getting increasingly successful at bypassing them.

An Irreplaceable Device for Secret Communication – A Spy Earphone

Tutorial Lounge Articles - Fri, 07/11/2014 - 06:08

There is not a single person in the world who has not heard about the most popular secret device in the world – a spy earphone.

A Device that Sets Trends in Secret Communication

This top-notch gadget got very popular some years ago, when students realized that this tool is one of the most successful ways to make exams and tests easier. Consequently, thanks to students who brought the device into the masses, it enjoyed the greatest popularity ever.

Only Security Services Had a Chance to Implement the Gadget

Before that moment, only few people knew that such a gadget existed, as that was the secret communication weapon of all intelligence services in the world.
The minute tool has been exploited by government agents; corporate security staff and law enforcement officers and by types of spies.

What is done by night appears by day

As the gadget has been related to such hidden and close professions, people used to know little about it. However, the world is changing rapidly and a lot of secrets have been revealed recently.

A Multipurpose Tool for All People

At present a spy earphone is implemented more and more and in every case when people want to set up individual communication. The mentioned device lets do it without any troubles. An earpiece is a tiny thing of skin color, which is inserted in the ear, and it is hardly visible to anyone, even if the person is standing centimeters to you.

In spite of being super small, the tool has powerful characteristics, making it possible to hear and transmit the information to very big distances.

The sphere of spy earpiece application has gone far beyond taking exams and tests.

A lot of presenters, TV hosts, news readers and all other TV people   cannot start a program without an earpiece in their ears. Such a precaution can help to avoid emergency situation when they are on air or to share sudden breaking news with viewers. Some of the presenters give all kinds of instructions how to behave and what to say. I think we have no idea of every purpose a spy earpiece is used for by television people.

Any public speech means that such a tool will be handled by a speaker, as everybody wants to look impressive and eloquent without giving much effort to it. Every single politician, surely, has an earpiece to make the best speech possible for common people.

Here, we have mentioned only a few cases where an earpiece can be implemented, but every case is a unique one, as the usage of the secret device makes the communication unforgettable and unique, because of the irreplaceable nature of a spy earpiece.

This past weekend Jerad Bitner and I celebrated America's birthday in Marin County by taking part in this year's edition of NodeConf. The two of us have been experimenting with node.js for the past couple of years, but this was our first large event focused on the platform. Unlike the more traditional conferences we've been to, NodeConf felt a bit more like a camp. Not just because it was around a 300 person event, but because we spent the weekend in a tent!

Prejudices

Drupal Fire - Mon, 07/07/2014 - 18:23

Károly Négyesi (via DrupalFire)

At Szeged, I asked a female Drupal contributor in Hungarian (I'm glad she did not understand) what was up with the coffee maker, because I readily presumed she was staff.
I saw one of the female geek role models at Austin with her baby. I got confused for a second, because apparently I think the übergeek and mother roles can't overlap.
On IRC, I almost said "Wow, that's impressive from a girl.".
I do not know how I can avoid these thoughts, but I am aware of them, I am bothered by them, and I try not to act on them. I also try to point out to fellow Drupalers when they act on their thoughts that these are not appropriate. I'm not sure what else I can do.
If you have good ideas on overcoming prejudice, please share!

Easier configuration development for Drupal 8

Drupal Fire - Mon, 07/07/2014 - 06:56

Károly Négyesi (via DrupalFire)

With config_devel, when you are editing a migration, you can just enter the name of the file being edited at admin/config/config_devel and on every request the module will check for changes and import the file into the active storage. The other direction works as well: say you are working on a contrib module and have a view. Provide the path of the file (this time in the auto export box) and on every change Drupal will automatically export. Once satisfied, just commit. Or perhaps you just want to follow what's in a config file as it's being edited -- provide sites/default/files/some.config.name.yml and it'll be right there on every save.

Both import and export are doable manually with the config module core provides. But I think the automatism makes life easier and I hope the module will be popular among D8 developers. Finally, let me thank beejeebus for cooking up the module originally and handing it over to me despite he knew I will rewrite it from the ground up.
