Matt Glaman: Drupal 8 Development Cookbook - Second Edition

News from Planet Drupal - Sun, 10/08/2017 - 00:54
Drupal 8 Development Cookbook - Second Edition mglaman Sat, 10/07/2017 - 19:54

During DrupalCon Vienna, the second edition of the Drupal 8 Development Cookbook was published! The Drupal 8 Development Cookbook published just over a year ago, right after Drupal 8.1 was released. I had written the book for 8.0 with "just in case" notes for what might change in Drupal 8.1. What I was not prepared for: how well the minor release system worked and provided rapid gains in feature changes.

Drupal.org blog: An update on projects created for Drupal

News from Planet Drupal - Sat, 10/07/2017 - 07:00

About six months ago we made a significant change to the way that modules, themes, and distributions are created on Drupal.org.

In the past, contributors had to first create a sandbox project, and then request manual review of their project in the Project Applications issue queue. The benefit of this community-driven moderation process was that modules were vetted for code quality and security issues by a group of volunteers. Project maintainers who completed this process also received the benefit of security advisory coverage from the Security Team for stable releases of their projects.

Unfortunately, the rate of project applications outpaced what volunteers could keep up with, and many worthy projects were never promoted to full project status, or moved off of Drupal.org to be hosted elsewhere.

To ameliorate this issue, we changed the process so that any confirmed user on Drupal.org may now make full projects.

To mitigate the risks of low code quality or security vulnerabilities we added new signals to project pages: including highlighting which release is recommended by the maintainer, displaying recent test results, and indicating whether the project receives security coverage both on the project page and in the composer 'extra' attribute. We're continuing to work on identifying additional signals of project quality that we can include, as well as surfacing some of this information in Drupal core. We also converted the project applications issue queue into a 'request security advisory coverage' issue queue.

What we hoped to see

We knew this would be a significant change for the project and the community. While many community members were excited to see the gates to contribution opened, others were concerned about security issues and Drupal's reputation for code quality.

Our prediction was that the lower barrier to contribution would result in an increase in full projects created on Drupal.org. This would indicate that new contributors or third party technology providers were finding it easier to integrate with Drupal and contribute those integrations back for use by others.

At the same time, we also expected to see an increase in the number of full projects that do not receive coverage from the security team. The question was whether this increase would be within an acceptable range, or represent a flood of low quality or insecure modules.

The results

The table below provides statistics about the full projects created on Drupal.org in the 5 months before March 17th, 2017 - when we opened the creation of full projects to all confirmed users.

* note: full projects that did not have stable releases were not automatically opted in to security coverage when we opened the full project creation gates.

… and this table provides statistics about the projects created in the 5 months after we opened the creation of full projects to all confirmed users:

+58%

As you can see, we have an almost 58% increase in the rate of full projects created on Drupal.org. We can also see a significant proportional increase in two key areas: projects with greater than 50 site usage and no security coverage(up 150% compared to the previous period), and projects that have applied for security coverage(up 344% compared to the previous period). Note: this increase in applications is for projects *created in these date ranges* not necessarily applications created overall.

This tells us that reducing friction in applying for security coverage, and encouraging project maintainers to do so should be a top priority.

Finally, this last table gives statistics about all of the projects currently on Drupal.org, regardless of creation date:

Sub-total with >=50 usage

9,677

40.13%

-1.72%

Total

24,114

From the overall data we see approximately what we might expect. The increase in growth of full projects on Drupal.org has lead to a modest increase in projects without security coverage.

Before the project application change, all full projects with stable releases received security advisory coverage. After this change, only those projects that apply for the ability to opt in(and then do so) receive coverage.

What has this meant for security coverage of projects hosted on Drupal.org?

1.92% of all full 7.x and 8.x projects have stable releases, but do not receive security advisory coverage. It is likely no accident that this translates into 464 projects, which is nearly equivalent to the number of projects additional projects added compared to our old growth rate.

Of those only 130 of those projects report more than 50 sites usage(or .54% of all 7.x and 8x full projects).

Next steps

From this analysis we can conclude the following:

  1. The opening of the project application gates has dramatically increased the number of projects contributed to Drupal.org.

  2. It has also increased the number of projects without security coverage, and the number of applications for the ability to opt in to coverage among new projects.

In consultation with the Security Working Group, we recommend the following:

  • For now, leave the project creation projects as it stands today - open to contribution from any confirmed user on Drupal.org.

    • Less than 2% of all Drupal projects with stable releases currently lack security coverage. The rate at which this is increasing is significant (and in the wrong direction) but not rapid enough to merit changing the project application policy immediately.

  • Solve the problem of too many security advisory coverage applications. The security advisory application queue has the same problem that the old project applications queue had - not enough volunteers to manually vet all of the applications - and therefore a significant backlog of project maintainers waiting on the ability to opt into coverage.

    • Recommendation: Implement an automated best practices quiz that maintainers can take in order to be granted the ability to opt into security advisory coverage. If this process is as successful as we hope, we may want to consider making this a gate on stable releases for full projects as well.

We look forward to working with the Security Working Group to implement this recommendation and continue to improve the contribution experience on Drupal.org, while preserving code quality and security.

WORDPRESS (X-THEME) DESIGN - Make my site look pretty ;) - Upwork

WordPress Work From UpWork - Sat, 10/07/2017 - 03:08
Hey!

I run a blog to teach founders how to raise money and not build crappy startups. Some people write the content is great... they don't say the site is.

I'm sick of people saying my content is amazing but my style doesn't match it ;(
My site is decent (I actually try, a bit), just not meeting the expectations of people.
Yes, I don't have fancy photos of me etc. I need to do that

I would love if someone could do a makeover, which (yeah, i don't actually know what needs to be done):
- Set right font style, font sizes, header sizes, quote size and format etc
- Global CSS colors
- Help set a consistent color format (I'm thinking of Neon.... in some places, but prob just images and backgrounds. Reid Hoffman's site uses neon and it looks cool and different)
- Image styling for images and sidebar images (lead magnets)
- Um and the other stuff I don't know.

It's wordpress. I use themeco x-theme (cornerstone for custom pages).

I'm not a total idiot, I'm just not a designer so want to make my readers happy! Can you help me figure out the format to have a pretty site, pls ;)
I blog to help founders set up companies and not fail as bad. Thanks!

[HELP] Looking for a plugin to list people who need volunteers

Talk about plugins - Sat, 10/07/2017 - 00:54

I'm looking for a plugin to list people who need volunteers. In the past the site has just listed them on a page, but we want to be able to have random listings show up in our sidebar.

I thought about using a classifieds plugin and I still might if I can't find anything else.

My perfect plugin: Each listing would need a title, description, start and stop listing date, categories, location and maybe a few hidden, internal fields. The listings would be displayed via shortcode based on categories and there would be a way to display them randomly in a sidebar.

Anyone know something that would fit the bill?

Some of my content ranks first page as I write quality content.

I'd like someone to analyse my wordpress site and explain to me
- what I need to do regularly when I write blogs (if can do better)
- any plugins i should also use (Have yoast)
- make any onsite improvements / check my robot file etc
- explain what other offsite SEO etc can be done and then maybe do it for me on ongoing basis ;)

I don't know enough so would love you to explain to me how my SEO can be better.
I don't want to do any dodgy blackhat stuff in case the obvious result happens!

Please be able to speak reasonable English. I would like to have calls with you.

Thrive Architect and Wordpress customization - Upwork

WordPress Work From UpWork - Fri, 10/06/2017 - 20:37
I recently moved from using Thrive Content Builder to the new, Thrive Architect. Unfortunately, there are some issues with the behavior now. For example, not being able to drag certain elements into the right place or setting a background color only to have it revert to the previous later without me touching it. I have worked with Thrive support and they say it's due to incompatibility with my theme and they can't help me. My WordPress theme is a custom theme but everything used to work fine with Thrive Content Builder. I'm looking for someone that knows Thrive Architect and also can edit WordPress themes. I would like both to work together again so I can continue using Thrive without these issues.

[FREE] Release Notes

Talk about plugins - Fri, 10/06/2017 - 14:26

Hey all,

Shameless plug(in) here. So I frequently develop custom themes for clients and wanted to keep track of new features so they could easily see what was new with each update after I deployed it (1.0, 1.1, 1.01, etc.). So, anyways, I created a plugin called Release Notes. Check if out if you're interested at https://wordpress.org/plugins/release-notes/.

If you have ideas or suggestions, send 'em my way! I'm hoping to make this useful for developers like me that enjoy having a history of changes to a theme.

Expected output:
- chosen font, colors and ratios for website design
- design in PSD files (will be converted into HTML/Divi WordPress by our team)
- copyrights entirely transferred to frimgle SPRL
- designed for responsive design (Desktop + Mobile)


All content and constraints are explained here: https://paper.dropbox.com/doc/Growth-Agency-Website-Design-0Yzq4F8WQVRhfUZYICDu9?_tk=share_copylink
