Dries Buytaert: Living our values

News from Planet Drupal - Thu, 03/23/2017 - 04:26

The Drupal community is committed to welcome and accept all people. That includes a commitment to not discriminate against anyone based on their heritage or culture, their sexual orientation, their gender identity, and more. Being diverse has strength and as such we work hard to foster a culture of open-mindedness toward differences.

A few weeks ago, I privately asked Larry Garfield, a prominent Drupal contributor, to leave the Drupal project. I did this because it came to my attention that he holds views that are in opposition with the values of the Drupal project.

I had hoped to avoid discussing this decision publicly out of respect for Larry's private life, but now that Larry has written about it on his blog and it is being discussed publicly, I believe I have no choice but to respond on behalf of the Drupal project.

It is not for me to share any of the confidential information that I've received, so I won't point out the omissions in Larry's blog post. However, I can tell you that those who have reviewed Larry's writing, including me, suffered from varying degrees of shock and concern.

In the end, I fundamentally believe that all people are created equally. This belief has shaped the values that the Drupal project has held since it's early days. I cannot in good faith support someone who actively promotes a philosophy that is contrary to this.

While the decision was unpleasant, the choice was clear. I remain steadfast in my obligation to protect the shared values of the Drupal project. This is unpleasant because I appreciate Larry's many contributions to Drupal, because this risks setting a complicated precedent, and because it involves a friend's personal life. The matter is further complicated by the fact that this information was shared by others in a manner I don't find acceptable either.

It's not for me to judge the choices anyone makes in their private life or what beliefs they subscribe to. I certainly don't take offense to the role-playing activities of Larry's alternative lifestyle. However, when a highly-visible community member's private views become public, controversial, and disruptive for the project, I must consider the impact that his words and actions have on others and the project itself. In this case, Larry has entwined his private and professional online identities in such a way that it blurs the lines with the Drupal project. Ultimately, I can't get past the fundamental misalignment of values.

First, collectively, we work hard to ensure that Drupal has a culture of diversity and inclusion. Our goal is not just to have a variety of different people within our community, but to foster an environment of connection, participation and respect. We have a lot of work to do on this and we can't afford to ignore discrepancies between the espoused views of those in leadership roles and the values of our culture. It's my opinion that any association with Larry's belief system is inconsistent with our project's goals.

Second, I believe someone's belief system inherently influences their actions, in both explicit and subtle ways, and I'm unwilling to take this risk going forward.

Third, Larry's continued representation of the Drupal project could harm the reputation of the project and cause harm to the Drupal ecosystem. Any further participation in a leadership role implies our community is complicit with and/or endorses these views, which we do not.

It is my responsibility and obligation to act in the best interest of the project at large and to uphold our values. Decisions like this are unpleasant and disruptive, but important. It is moments like this that test our commitment to our values. We must stand up and act in ways that demonstrate these values. For these reasons, I'm asking Larry to resign from the Drupal project.

ActiveLAMP: Shibboleth Authentication in Symfony 2.8+|3.0+

News from Planet Drupal - Thu, 03/23/2017 - 02:00

We recently had the opportunity to work on a Symfony app for one of our Higher Ed clients that we recently built a Drupal distribution for. Drupal 8 moving to Symfony has enabled us to expand our service offering. We have found more opportunities building apps directly using Symfony when a CMS is not needed. This post is not about Drupal, but cross posting to Drupal Planet to demonstrate the value of getting off the island. Writing custom authentication schemes in Symfony used to be on the complicated side. But with the introduction of the Guard authentication component, it has gotten a lot easier.

[HELP] Alert plugin for new WordPress posts

Talk about plugins - Wed, 03/22/2017 - 23:26

Alerts are ubiquitous on the web... with a circular indication that there are new notices to view. Does anyone know of a plugin that will allow placement of a widget to show an "alert" when there is a new website blog post? I suppose these would be connected to a browser's cache? Dunno... I have not seen one.

Jeff Geerling's Blog: Use a Drupal 8 BLT project with Drupal VM on Windows 7 or Windows 8

News from Planet Drupal - Wed, 03/22/2017 - 23:09

Windows 10 is the only release Acquia's BLT officially supports. But there are still many people who use Windows 7 and 8, and most of these people don't have control over what version of Windows they use.

Drupal VM has supported Windows 7, 8, and 10 since I started building it a few years ago (at that time I was still running Windows 7), and using a little finesse, you can actually get an entire modern BLT-based Drupal 8 project running on Windows 7 or 8, as long as you do all the right things, as will be demonstrated in this blog post.

Simple WordPress Site Needed ASAP - Upwork

WordPress Work From UpWork - Wed, 03/22/2017 - 20:57
Hi Upworkers!

Our company needs a very basic Wordpress site completed. All the instructions are neatly layed out in a google doc with all login info to godaddy, wordpress, envato.

All content is there already...its a really simple site that's needed...nothing fancy.

We purchased a GEM theme and the hardest part of this project may be stripping the theme down to reflect just the content we want to show.

Not the most exciting web dev gig, but will definitely lead to other projects if you can do it quickly and efficiently.

We made the mistake of hiring an idiot on Fiverr who faked being American, and then didn't delivery, so the first step of this project is checking our google doc, logging in to his work and deciding if you can just fix up what he did, or if its easiest to just start from scratch.

Who's rescuing this project?

[HELP] Has anyone worked with Beanstream to put in a donation/payment mechanism on a Wordpress site?

Talk about plugins - Wed, 03/22/2017 - 20:37

We have a quote for building a donation portal (matching the site appearance, shopping cart, high security etc.) into our WordPress site, but the estimate is contradicted by Beanstream by a 30-40 workhour margin. Does anyone have experience with this/ a ballpark estimate of how many hours it should take to implement?

Sooper Drupal Themes: Are you ready for Drupal 8?

News from Planet Drupal - Wed, 03/22/2017 - 20:30

Between the rush of product updates we're putting out lately, a moment of reflection...

Like many other Drupal shops and theme/product developers I've been taking it easy with major investment in D8. But times are changing. Now we are seeing a time where Google searches including Drupal 8 are more numerous than searches containing Drupal 7. This is by no means a guarantee that D8 is a clear winner but to me it is a sign of progress and it inspires enough confidence to push ahead with our Drupal 8 product upgrades. SooperThemes is on schedule to release our Drupal themes and modules on Drupal 8 soon and I'm sure it will be great for us and our customers.

2017 will be an interesting year for Drupal, a year in which Drupal 8 will really show whether it can be as popular as it's younger brother. The lines in the chart might be crossing but Drupal 8 some way to go before it is as popular as 7. Understanding that Drupal 8 is more geared towards developers one might say it never will, but I think that it's important for the open web that Drupal will stay competitive in the low end market. Start-ups like Tesla and SpaceX have demonstrated how Drupal can grow along with your business all the way towards IPO and beyond.

Is your business ready for Drupal 8?

Personally I think I will need a month or 2 before I can say I'm totally comfortable with shifting focus of development to Drupal 8. Most of my existing customers are on Drupal 7 and my Drupal 7 expertise and products will not be irrelevant any time soon. One thing that is holding me back is uncertainty about media library features in Drupal 8, I hope the D8media team will be successful with their awesome work that puts this critical feature set in core.

If you are a Drupal developer, themer, or business owner, how do you feel about Drupal 8? Are you getting more business for Drupal 8 than Drupal 7? How is your experience with training yourself or your staff to work with Drupal 8 and it's more object oriented code? 

Let me know in the comments if you have anything to share about what Drupal 8 means to you!

Valuebound: How to send custom formatted HTML mail in Drupal 8 using hook_mail_alter()

News from Planet Drupal - Wed, 03/22/2017 - 19:47

As you can understand from name itself it’s basically used to Alter an email created with drupal mail in D7/ MailManagerInterface->mail() in D8.  hook_mail_alter() allows modification of email messages which includes adding and/or changing message text, message fields, and message headers.

Email sent rather than drupal_mail() will not call hook_mail_alter(). All core modules use drupal_mail() & always a recommendation to use drupal_mail but it’s not mandatory.

Syntax: hook_mail_alter(&$message)


$message: Array containing the message data. Below are the Keys in this array include:

Wordpress Website Developer - Upwork

WordPress Work From UpWork - Wed, 03/22/2017 - 17:34
I have a website mockup that I'm very happy with, however I need it built in wordpress. It is actually more of a landing page, but I need some backend stuff too. You will not have to be very creative as the design is done, just looking for a developer.

Please apply by answering the following 6 questions.

1. Can you send me a list of sites that you have built previously?
2. What support will you offer after the site goes live?
3. Can you build a responsive site that works on multiple mobile and tablet devices? If so, please send me examples that you've built.
4. What search engine optimization components are most important to you to include?
5. Are you capable of building a backend that will have a series of gated videos, and other content. The purpose of the website is to get conversion for people to watch a free video series, then move them along a funnel to the point where they buy my service.
6. Availability, and current project load. i.e. How soon can you get to me, and finish?

If i think we may be a good fit, I will send you my site design and a couple other questions, and if it's a mutual fit, we can hit GO asap.

Acquia Developer Center Blog: 254: Mumbai Memories - meet Rakesh James

News from Planet Drupal - Wed, 03/22/2017 - 17:13

My trusty microphone, camera, and I recorded a few great conversations at DrupalCon in Mumbai that have never been released until now. Today, a conversation with Rakesh James, who credits Dries for giving him a way to live and support his family with Drupal. Rakesh is an extraordinary and generous person; he's personally paid that forward, giving others in India the chance to change their lives, too, by teaching hundreds of people Drupal and giving them a shot at a career, too. He's also a top 30 contributor to Drupal 8 core.

Rakesh told me about the moment he both discovered and fell in love with Drupal. His manager gave him permission to check out Drupal for a project, "I started it with Drupal 5. I got a big error. My senior [colleague] said I could post on Drupal.org because he was sitting far away and could not debug for me. I posted the error ... After one hour somebody from the community replied that it would be better if you started with Drupal 6. That was amazing. If you post it, somebody from the [other side] of the planet replied to me, 'You should do this.' From that amazing [moment] till now, I have that feeling. All the time when you go to the community and post something, you'll be getting the right answer. In an hour's time. That is so amazing."

"I feel like when I have gotten something, I should give back to others who are struggling. If they have a little education, know how to play with the computer, I should teach them Drupal. That is the best way of doing it. I spread the word because I got something. The people are around, this magic should be with them also ... So they will have a better life. They'll have a better salary. It's a better way to do that; teach the kids in pre-university colleges. We should teach them. I volunteer my time for that. Two Saturdays a month, we go out to the colleges. Every first Saturday, we have a community meet-up; the other Saturday we go to a college and teach them Drupal."

If you have any doubts about Rakesh's sincerity in all this, watch how moved he is in the video from about 10:30 to 11:50 :-)

DrupalCon Asia Mumbai 2016 was almost exactly a year ago now. Of all the conferences I have been to, Mumbai was probably my favorite. I met an incredible, active, enthusiastic Drupal community that welcomed everyone with open arms, incredible food (!), and a LOT of selfies :-)
