Morpht: Drupal 8 Configuration - Part 2: How the API works

News from Planet Drupal - Sun, 05/12/2019 - 23:04

We live in an age of Drupal complexity. In the early days of Drupal, many developers would have a single Drupal instance/environment (aka copy) that was their production site, where they would test out new modules and develop new functionality. Developing on the live website however sometimes met with disastrous consequences when things went wrong! Over time, technology on the web grew, and nowadays it's fairly standard to have a Drupal project running on multiple environments to allow site development to be run in parallel to a live website without causing disruptions. New functionality is developed first in isolated private copies of the website, put into a testing environment where it is approved by clients, and eventually merged into the live production site.

While multiple environments allow for site development without causing disruptions on the live production website, it introduces a new problem; how to ensure consistency between site copies so that they are all working with the correct code.

This series of articles will explore the Configuration API, how it enables functionality to be migrated between multiple environments (sites), and ways of using the Configuration API with contributed modules to effectively manage the configuration of a project. This series will consist of the following posts:

Part 1 gives the background of the Configuration API, as well as discusses some terminology used within this article, so it's worth a read before beginning this article.

Active configuration is in the database

In Drupal 8, configuration used at runtime is stored in the database. The values in the database are known as active configuration. In Drupal 7, configuration was known as settings, and stored in the {variable} table. In Drupal 8, configuration is stored in the {config} table. The active configuration is used at runtime by Drupal when preparing responses.

Configuration is backed up to files

The Configuration API enables the ability to export the active database configuration into a series of YML files. These files can also be imported into the database. This means that a developer can create a new Field API field on their local development environment, export the configuration for the new field to files, push those files to to the production environment, then import the configuration into the production environment's active configuration in the database.

The configuration values in the database are the live/active values, used by Drupal when responding to requests. The YMLfiles that represent configuration are not required, and are not used at run-time. In fact, in a new system the configuration files don't even exist until/unless someone exports the active configuration from the database. The configuration files are a means to be able to back up and/or migrate configuration between environments. Configuration files are never used in runtime on a site.

Configuration architecture

Let's look at the Configuration API on a more technical level, using a real-world example. The Restrict IP module allows users to set a list of rules that whitelist or blacklist users based on their IP address. Upon visiting the module settings page, users are presented with a checkbox that allows them to enable/disable the module functionality.

From a data standpoint, checkboxes are booleans; they represent either a true or false value. When exporting the configuration of a site with the Restrict IP module enabled, the relevant configuration key will be saved with a value of either true or false to a .yml file. Modules are required to define the schema for any configuration the module creates. Developers can look at the configuration schema declarations to understand what file(s) will be created, and what values are accepted.

Modules declare the schema for their configuration in the [MODULE ROOT]/config/schema directory. In the case of the Restrict IP module, the schema file is restrict_ip/config/schema/restrict_ip.schema.yml. This file contains the following declaration:

  type: config_object
  label: 'Restrict IP settings'
      type: boolean
      label: 'Enable module'

Schema declarations tell the system what the configuration looks like. In this case, the base configuration object is restrict_ip.settings, from the first line. When this configuration is exported to file, the file name will be restrict_ip.settings.yml. In that file will be a declaration of either:

enable: true


enable: false

When the file restrict_ip.settings.yml is imported into the active configuration in another environment's database, the value for the enable key will be imported as defined in the file.

On top of this, enabled modules are listed in core.extension.yml, which is the configuration that tracks which modules are enabled in a given environment. When the Restrict IP module is enabled in one environment, and configuration files exported from that environment are imported into a different Drupal environment, the Restrict IP module will be enabled due to its existence in core.extension.yml, and the setting enable will have a value of either true or false, depending on what the value was exported from the original environment.

Note that if you were to try to import the configuration without having the Restrict IP module in the codebase, an error will be thrown and the configuration import will fail with an error about the Restrict IP module not existing.


In this article, we looked at how the Drupal 8 Configuration API works on a technical level. We looked at how active configuration lives in the database, and can be exported to files which can then be imported back into the database, or migrated and imported to other Drupal environments. In part 3 of the series, Using the API, we will look at how to actually use the Configuration API, as well as some contributed modules that extend the functionality of the Configuration API, allowing for more effective management of Drupal 8 projects.

Hey so I'm new to wordpress and I'm helping someone make their site WCAG compliant. Their WP site uses the Fusion Builder plugin to build out most pages and many of the elements generated by the builder violate WCAG rules.Things like making sure iframes have a title attribute and that all images have an alt text attribute. Is it possible to edit the markup for the fusion builder elements and if so how do I do this ? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Matt Glaman: A proper introduction to Drupal Check

News from Planet Drupal - Sun, 05/12/2019 - 14:30
A proper introduction to Drupal Check Sunday 12, May 2019 mglaman You may have heard of Drupal Check. You may wonder what in the world it is or how it even came to be. I realized this went from an internal research and development task for a product, to open source contribution and then to an essential tool in the march toward Drupal 9. The timeline from January to DrupalCon in April has been pretty crazy, and I realized I have never done a proper blog post about Drupal Check.

+ Divi installed and connected to our API
+ Pages created and added to menu

What we need you to do:
+ Take a look at our current site
+ (Re)build page templates (and save them in library) inspired on the pages on our current site + paste the current content (we will edit that later). You can use the Dici page builder + custom CSS.

Transform a simple PDS/PDF web design into a responsive Wordpress app - Upwork

WordPress Work From UpWork - Sun, 05/12/2019 - 11:08
We are a Czech start-up company (non-profit at the moment).

We have a PSD/PDF design of our future web page and we'd like to transform it into a nice, fast, lightweight, minimalistic Wordpress app that we can easily deploy to any Wordpress hosting.

It'll be a very simple web page with:
  - One home page (links at the top, contact info at the bottom, a colorful banner at the top and then a scrollable content)
  - A few subpages (like about us, details, etc..)

Should be responsive, optimized for HiDPI displays, touch friendly and contain all necessary things (like favicons, touch icons, etc.) - like all web pages should :)

I will send some examples in a PM for those who are really interested in the job.

What are is your quote / estimate?

[FREEMIUM] Visual Scripting for WordPress - Add unlimited features without writing PHP code

Talk about plugins - Sat, 05/11/2019 - 17:33

Hi All,

Today I want to introduce FloPress.

It's a complete visual scripting system based on the use of graphical elements representing native WordPress mechanisms. It provides hook and function definitions of WordPress, uses Twig for rendering and generates an object-oriented (OO) PHP code.

You can do many things with FloPress like making WordPress more secure, updating post data, defining post types, creating Shortcodes or whatever you want.


The Pro version provides definitions on some of the most popular and widely used WordPress plugins (Advanced Custom Fields, Jetpack, WooCommerce, ...).

It gives access to 70 ready-to-use and fully customizable features, directly available on the WordPress administration page.

Free and Pro versions are available here : https://flopress.io

In the short example below, you'll see how it lets you add custom ACF blocks for Gutenberg.


If you have any questions or suggestions, don´t hesitate to contact me. I hope you find it interesting.

Thanks for reading!

Customising WordPress theme/ add video lightbox - Upwork

WordPress Work From UpWork - Sat, 05/11/2019 - 15:56
I have a WordPress website built with the VidoRev theme  (https://themeforest.net/item/vidorev-video-wordpress-theme/21798615 )

I like many aspects of the website and theme (especially the Video Lightbox Popup) however it's a bit cluttered and plain. I'd like more/different Elementor layout templates, or to be able to customise the design to make it a bit more modern,  clean.

I would like the final design to draw inspiration from other news websites such as:









I want to retain much of the functionality of the VidoRev theme (i.e. thumbnails for videos show a play button icom which opens the video player lightbox and recommended videos to play next).

Also I would like:

- Profile images to show next to Author's name where possible
- Sticky video player when scrolling down
- different categories of news and articles which can be sorted.

(If you think it's easier/better to use another theme closer to the design I like, but implement the lightbox functionality to that theme (along with some other functionality) we can do it that way if you think that's best.

The website and content already exist, just need you to work on improving the design and layout.

(Here's the WordPress theme currently installed - VidoRev - which uses Elementor.

I have also bought Elementor Pro version, and will purchase any plugins or themes required to complete the project)

An eye for good design is necessary.  Once we agree on the scope of the project, I will give you plenty of freedom to use your expertise and judgement to make design decisions to deliver the project.

Would like it completed within 2-3 weeks max if possible (sooner the better!).

If you have any questions,  feel free to ask.
