News from Planet Drupal - Wed, 04/10/2019 - 20:07
Embedding a React App in a Drupal 8 Site

Lots of people in the Drupal community are eager to learn React these days, following Dries's announcement that React is coming to Drupal.

At NEDCamp in 2018 I presented on how to dip your toe into embedding a react application into a Drupal framework (video on drupal.tv).

This is the long-delayed blog post to follow up to the presentation.

Amazee Labs: DrupalCon Seattle Recap Day 1 & 2: Here We Go Again

News from Planet Drupal - Wed, 04/10/2019 - 19:18
DrupalCon Seattle Recap Day 1 & 2: Here We Go Again

It’s been roughly four years since I last attended any DrupalCon, the one in L.A. being my endmost venture to the North American watering hole. After that, I took a break from the seasonal migration and remained at home, in the office, like an overfed cat with agoraphobia.

Victor Künzig Wed, 04/10/2019 - 21:18

Normally I would invest my time in writing about attending sessions and/or how talks went from our speakers or BoFs and other social events. But since I spent the better half of Monday on a plane somewhere over the Atlantic, I will be taking this opportunity to compare this weeks experience to the one I had from four years ago. 

Besides the summits and the different ways you can buy the ticket nowadays, not much has really changed. DrupalCon remains the biggest Drupal event in the world, and you will meet an overabundance of incredibly friendly people there.

Part 1: The journey to Seattle

Like all DrupalCons for me, this one also began with an elongated trip through several airports, first a 1h 5min hop from Zurich to Amsterdam, followed by a roughly ten-hour flight to touch down at Seattle Tacoma International Airport.

Italy vs. France

The flights went smooth and apart from the occasional shakedown, I didn’t notice much uneasiness. That is until I was served lunch. There were several intriguing options, I had to make a comprehensive decision between Caesar salad, a vegetarian mozzarella pizza or a turkey and cheese croissant. Naturally given my never-ending love for Italian cuisine I opted for the pizza but it seemed that by the time the food cart reached my row, they were out.



Instead, I received a box that read “Fresh Croissant“ in big, classy letters printed on a reasonably attractive shell showcasing a map of Paris. Trading Italy for France couldn't be that bad, surely. But upon opening my small box of doom I was treated to what must have been the remains of a gutter rat, shipped directly from the catacombs of Paris onto my food tray. It‘s hard to describe the shape, consistency, and scent of the box innards without using chemical compositions or comparison to what floats around in a sewer. The temperature also seemed to vary quite a bit from top to bottom, further confirming my theory of it being alive at one point.

Whatever this was, it wasn't a “Parmesan Cheese, Mature Cheddar Cheese & Turkey” croissant.

Order at the border

Once landed I was keen to leave the rat behind and make my way through the checkpoints. I last visited the US in 2015 and have an ESTA, so I was sure I would be able to get through quickly and effortlessly. 

There were only 2 lines, US/Canadian citizens and ESTA/VISA holders, the latter was full of the majority of the passengers from my flight. Because of my seating arrangements, I exited the air tube quite late. The wait was long enough that every so often a disgruntled passenger reached terminal annoyance and broke down before attempting to bargain with the officer who was making his rounds or one of the airport staff members. Results of these interactions varied between total denial and instant gratification. I didn't bother trying to negotiate, I wasn't in a particular hurry, but after thirty minutes of barely any movement, my knees were getting unhappy.

At some point, one of the staffers approached me and asked if I had visited the US since 2008. When I answered positively he immediately pointed me towards line 1. Now, I’m no UX expert but perhaps that information could have been included on the signs. When others within my vicinity heard about my redirection, they promptly followed suit. Soon I was racing most of line two as they migrated like a flock of seagulls to line 1. We waited again.

But that wasn't the end of it. After I checked through the automated migration ATM I had to stand in line again for the final stamp of approval. There were 6 border control officers working that day. Some faster than others and some nicer than others, one, in particular, was having a rough start to the week. To say the least, officer McNasty wasn't exactly welcoming, in contrary, in German there is a word for people like that, we call them “Arschloch”.

He must have smelled the gutter rat on me because he wasn't exactly thrilled when I approached. Our interaction went something like this:

Officer McNasty: “You here for business or pleasure?”
Me: “Both.”
Officer McNasty: “There is no both, there is either business or pleasure. Are you here for business or pleasure?”
Me: “One week business, one week holiday.”

He responded with a frown that would have put my math teacher to shame, but a few minor questions later I finally received the approving stamp as he silently pointed me towards the escalator down to the baggage claim. I was free. Sort of.

The first one to spot both me and my suitcase gets a drink at DC Seattle. 

At last, I made it to Seattle, riding into the city I was treated with tall, striking buildings and a glimpse of the Harbour.

Hello Seattle!

Part 2: The venue and playing “Guess who?” The fortress of not so solitude

This year, DrupalCon is being held at the Washington State Convention Center. Built in 1988, this large 415’000 sqft complex is humongous compared to the European counterparts. It’s also located in what I would call “Downtown” Seattle. Take that with a grain of salt though as I base this on the six hours I’ve been in the city.

The building also sits on top of a freeway, which you can spot and overlook while you’re inside of it, neat!

When I first arrived, it took me some time to find the entrance. The building, depending on where you approach it from, is rather defensive and resembles a fortress more than a convention centre (think of the freeway as the moat). Even after finding the entrance, if you come in from the west you’ll have to use 4-6 escalators before you see any rooms. 

After collecting my badge from the friendly volunteers I made my way through the halls and started to look for familiar faces. DrupalCons are always tricky, you end up meeting a lot of people who seem to know you (or not) and I often have trouble remembering if I’ve met them. 

During times like these, I’d like to play the good old “Guess who?” game. The goal is to keep the conversation going until you can figure out who you’re talking to before your cover gets blown. 

Admittedly I've never successfully finished a session, but the strategy I’d recommend is starting the conversation with “Oh wow, it's been quite a while hasn’t it? What have you been up to since we last met?”. Hopefully make your opponent reveal some crucial information about their job, location, and where you met previously. If you're lucky one of these things will tip you off and trigger a spark to put that name on that face.

If you find yourself on the receiving end of my blank stare, I apologize. it's not you, it's me.

The booth, the booth, the booth is unattended

This is one of the first years Amazee Labs doesn't have a physical booth, but our sister company amazee.io does. I was giddy with my freedom to wander and check out the exhibition hall and while it was still under construction. 

If you’re around the exhibit hall you can find some Amazees, of both the io and Labs variety hanging out at the io booth. Come and say hello!

Giving back

While the booth was being constructed several of our peeps dug themselves into the contribution hall on the 6th floor.

You can easily spot John from about 600 miles away as he overlooks the kingdom of room 6A with his standing desk contraption. It’s a great conversation starter really, for the time I sat there I witnessed several hundred people approaching him and asking about every little detail of his mobile turret unit. 

So if the makers of this product are reading this post I think they should consider making John the official global ambassador of this mobile standup desk unit solution that fits into a backpack and gets a pass from the TSA.

Part 3: Extracurricular activities and the endless consumption of beverages

Monday evening presented itself with several social offerings, amongst which was a pub crawl that was attended by a few of the fellowship.

– Image courtesy of Josef Dabernig (@dasjo)

Since I began to fall asleep while walking (I was still running on Zurich time so technically it was around 3 am) I decided to skip the crawl as that would have ended up in a different kind of pizza.

But before that, I realized that for the first time ever, I forgot to pack a toothbrush and some paste. So after taking a nap for about an hour, I was forced to venture out again, this time to find the holy brush.

It’s a restaurant

Tuesday evening also saw the Amazee dinner, were we collectively gathered and feasted on quality beverages in a place called “Outlier”. The food was indeed fantastic, some people even dropped phrases such as “this is the best _________ I ever had in a restaurant”. 

Everyone seemed equally amazed about the quality of the provided liquid but not the selection. Which is why several of us left afterwards in search of alternatives to quench one's thirst.

In the end, it was a great, cosy dinner, filled with friends and family alike.

Part 4: Conclusion and final thoughts Should you go or should you stay?

So, then you wonder, what's this all about, what is the meaning of this stretched out the first impression? To be honest, I’m not sure. You probably noticed that I didn't compare it all that much to L.A., the reason for it is very simple, there is not much comparing needed.

While the venue and sessions may change, and the outside activities like the pub crawls are fun and inviting, there’s not really a wrong way to do DrupalCon. You can find your own way, roam around freely in town and every now and then you might run into some Drupal people that couldn’t be more different but somehow share the same passion.

InternetDevels: Decoupled Drupal out-of-box with Contenta CMS distribution

News from Planet Drupal - Wed, 04/10/2019 - 12:39

When it comes to creating websites quickly and easily, there’s hardly anything that compares to Drupal distributions. These are ready Drupal builds with core, theme, set of modules, libraries, and configuration ready for a particular industry, website type, or use case. One of the hottest use cases today is decoupled Drupal architecture. Of course, Drupal has got distributions for it that give you decoupled Drupal out-of-box.

Vardot: Top 10 Drupal Websites in the World (Updated)

News from Planet Drupal - Wed, 04/10/2019 - 12:00
Firas Ghunaim April 10, 2019

Editor’s Note -- This article was formerly listed as the Top 10 Websites Built with Drupal, and based on TopDrops.org. That site has since stopped updating, so we decided to pivot towards a new kind of value for our readers: the most surprising examples of Drupal-run sites.

Some of the world’s most influential businesses and organizations run their websites using Drupal: General Electric, eBay, The Economist, etc.

A good number of groups using the CMS might come as a surprise, however, and they prove its reliability for creating powerful and noteworthy sites. We checked the web to bring you our list of the top Drupal websites. For a list of Drupal’s 10 best sites, read on.

 

Learn why Drupal is the Best CMS for your Website

 

10. Entertainment Weekly

Entertainment Weekly (a.k.a. EW) is an American publication, owned by Time Inc., that covers film, television, music, theater, books and pop culture.

It’s renowned for covering all things Hollywood, from the latest films and trends to the high-octane lives of its celebrities. EW reports on television ratings, movie grosses, production costs, and even concert ticket sales. Their in-depth articles are among the top resources for the world’s favorite shows, producers, showrunners, and more.

In addition to being a top Drupal site, ew.com is also ranked by Alexa as the 902nd most popular website globally over the last three months.

 

9. Tesla

Tesla is one of the world’s most talked-about companies, known for making waves in the markets for automobiles and clean energy. You’ve probably heard about their fleet of self-driving, electric cars or the Tesla Wall: a giant battery providing homes with storage options for clean energy.

Their site is neat, clean, and highly effective at showcasing their products. We’re big fans of their homepage in particular, and we recommend you check it out. It’s exactly what a future tech company’s website should look like!

 

8. NCAA

College sports in the United States is big business. The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) is a non-profit association which regulates athletic competitions for 1,281 institutions, hosts conferences, and manages related organizations across the United States.

In 2014, the NCAA generated nearly a billion dollars in revenue—80 to 90% of which was thanks to the Men's Division I Basketball Tournament.

Their website is a functional mix of sports journalism and sales. Not only do they post schedules, analysis, and video coverage, but they also market their team merchandise hosted on the secondary site, shopncaasports.com.

 

 

7. Mint

Mint.com is a free web-based personal financial management service that caters to over 16,000 US and Canadian financial institutions and self-reports having 10 million users. Mint's primary service allows users to track bank, credit card, investment, and loan transactions and balances them all through a single user interface --as well as create personal budgets and goals.

In 2009, it was acquired by Intuit, the makers of Quicken and TurboTax. Judging by the look and feel of their site, that merger came with a bump in digital marketing expertise; Mint.com is simple, clean, and makes user acquisition easy.

 

6. The Australian Government

The state of Australia leans on Drupal to power their website: a sprawling information resource for citizens, visitors, and entrepreneurs. The site hosts over 3,000 distinct pages covering topics from healthcare and culture to career opportunities and travel suggestions. The website even goes the extra mile by linking to local news and social media channels.

Australia.gov.au is a great example of Drupal’s ability to organize and present information. The site is designed like an inverted funnel, with the homepage offering a selection of categories that branch into more specific topics the deeper you dive.

 

5. Le Figaro

Founded in 1826, Le Figaro is the oldest national newspaper in France. It is the second-largest national newspaper in France after Le Parisien and before Le Monde and is part of Le Figaro Group, whose publications include TV Magazine and Evene.

The site delivers a variety of features that naturally belong on the website of a leading periodical. Page load speed is stellar despite being packed with feeds, media, and a live video pop-up on the bottom corner of the screen.

 

4. The Emmy Awards

The Emmy Awards are a group of American awards dedicated to recognizing the best of U.S. television --from its actors and directors to its engineers and humanitarian impact. Their website covers featurettes on notable happenings and personalities surrounding television around the world (though naturally centered on America), as well as event schedules and videos of events and commentary.

Their site is dense in terms of content but smooth in presentation --just what you might expect from a showbiz powerhouse like the Television Academy.

While there are many options to choose from regarding themes for your website's content, here's our list of recommended Drupal themes that enable an effective and engaging digital experience.

 

3. Keap

Keap offers a client management service and automation platform (Infusionsoft) for small businesses. Their products are aimed at streamlining the customer lifecycle, facilitating customer relationship management, marketing automation, lead capture, and e-commerce.

Based in Chandler, Arizona, USA, Keap is one of the fastest growing private companies in the region, adding 240 jobs between 2012 and 2013, and also receiving $54 million in venture capital from Goldman Sachs in early 2013.

 

2. ABS-CBN News

ABS-CBN News and Current Affairs is the news division of the ABS-CBN Corporation, a Philippine media conglomerate. It’s headquartered in the Philippines, and has news bureaus in North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Middle East, making it the largest and the most comprehensive news outlet when it comes to local and international newsgathering in the island nation.

Their website is powered by Drupal, which allows them to deliver news in real time, connect across various social media platforms, and encourage community discussion through a login system for news readers to set up profiles and engage in discussions.

 

1. NASA

NASA is the American government’s flagship agency for its civilian space program, aeronautics research, and aerospace research. They stand at the forefront of many of the world’s latest discoveries in physics, astronomy, and engineering --and their website is a haven for the world’s science enthusiasts.

Their site hosts information about past and present space missions, ultra-high definition photos and videos of the cosmos, and download links to a nearly endless amount of apps and learning resources for those looking to learn more about the universe we inhabit. It’s a shining example of Drupal CMS used to present stunning information, and elevate the user’s experience.

 

Honorable Mentions

As of 2019; the following 2 major platforms were revamped and enhanced as digital experiences with Drupal 8:

 

Amman Stock Exchange

 

and

 

Al-Bawaba News (BETA)

New Drupal sites are always being uploaded, updated, and refined as the world’s site designers and marketers find more ways to work with the system. Drupal’s large community of developers and companies like Vardot are always at work innovating the craft of designing with Drupal; it’s only a matter of time before new sites earn a spot on our list.

Do you agree with our list of top 10 Drupal websites in the world? If you don't or see better websites out there worth mentioning... let us know in the comments!

mark.ie: Printing Regions in Views in Different Places Using the Same Template

News from Planet Drupal - Wed, 04/10/2019 - 11:08
Printing Regions in Views in Different Places Using the Same Template

We had a case where on some views we needed to print the header above the exposed filters and on others we needed to print the header after the exposed filters. Here's my simple solution.

markconroy Wed, 04/10/2019 - 12:08

This is rather simple, in my views template (list.twig I call it, as I am using PatternLab), I created the following:

  1. {% if not header_after_exposed and header %}
  2. {{ header }}
  3. {% endif %}
  4.  
  5. {% if exposed %}
  6. {{ exposed }}
  7. {% endif %}
  8.  
  9. {% if header_after_exposed and header %}
  10. {{ header }}
  11. {% endif %}

Now, in my corresponding views template in Drupal - views-view--search.html.twig - I just use that template and set the header_after_exposed variable to true.

  1. {% set header_after_exposed = true %}
  2. {% include '@content/list/list.twig' %}

Sooper Drupal Themes: Why Drupal is the Go To CMS for Higher Education

News from Planet Drupal - Wed, 04/10/2019 - 09:27
Who is choosing Drupal as a CMS?

Picking the right type of CMS for any website is no easy task. However, when it comes to complex websites that have to be shown on a wide variety of displays and in 10 different languages, the choice is even harder. In this article, I am going to tell you the reason why universities such as Harvard, Oxford, MIT, Stanford etc. are choosing Drupal as their default Content Management System.

Growth is no problem

Higher education websites are constantly growing and expanding. On top of that, most university websites are having sister sites. This means that a CMS has to handle a bigger degree of complexity when it comes to managing multiple websites. Having this in mind, more simplistic Content Management Systems are likely to fail at handling such a big amount of data in an efficient way. However, Drupal was specifically designed for this. For Drupal, handling such an impressive amount of data in a quick and efficient way is no problem. 

Multi-platform support

Another interesting factor that comes into play when choosing the right CMS is technology. The main consumer market for universities are students. Research shows that on average a student owns 6.9 devices. What this means is that they spend a lot of time on different electronic devices such as laptops, smartphones and tablets. With Drupal however, the websites are already optimized for different screen sizes, provided that you use a mobile-ready theme like our Glazed framework theme. This means that when a website is built and ready to launch, Drupal is going to automatically adapt it to be also shown in the right format for the screen of a smartphone or any other device that is capable of browsing the internet. This leads to a further drop in the IT overhead costs.

Language is no barrier for Drupal

University websites usually have to come in a variety of languages for international students. The entire multilangual support architecture of Drupal has been rebuild from the ground up. It makes it easy to create a multilingual experience by having the native language functionality directly integrated in Drupal 8 core API’s. Universities now can have the power to adapt to any kind of student demographic. What this means is that Drupal gives you the option to be able to extend your communication campaign in over 100 different languages. 

Easy content management

Managing content is easy on Drupal 7 and 8. All you had to do was presss the edit button present on every page. However, the Drupal experience can be further improved by using Glazed Builder, which is taking this a step further by adding inline editing for the easy access and convenience of its user. This improved experience can benefit universities especially, since a university website should facilitate an easy access to downloading, uploading, updating and editing different files. With Drupal and Glazed Builder you don’t have to be a computer wizard to take advantage of the easy content management that it's offered.

No licensing fees

Proprietary CMS’s are usually charging licensing fees, which have to be taken into account by a university when calculating the cost for building a website. With Drupal however, the costs for licensing are non-existing. The reason for this is that Drupal is an open source CMS. What this means is that people are dedicating their free time for developing the project without any monetary expectations in mind. With this in mind, Drupal is sure to be able to cut down the costs which you would otherwise have for building a new website by choosing another CMS. 

Drupal, the perfect choice for higher education

Drupal is one of the best content management systems currently on the market. There are many advantages, however, when also taken into account with the lack of licensing fees, Drupal is the obvious CMS of choice for higher education institutions. So what are you waiting for? If you're a university and are looking to upgrade your website, then Drupal is the right answer for you.

Responsive portal website, created using the Divi (child) theme - Upwork

WordPress Work From UpWork - Wed, 04/10/2019 - 09:19
Assignment:

Requested is the creation of a simple responsive portal website with links to various external websites. Requirements are that it is created using the Divi (child) theme provided. A fresh Wordpress installation along with a clean child theme (named HIP Portal) has already been set up for you on the development environment http://hip.demannenachterdeschermen.nl along with some plug-ins we favor. Please use as much as possible from the options of the Divi theme itself before adding any custom code to the Child theme or installing extra plug-ins. (Divi experience is required.)

The designs can be viewed here:
https://invis.io/GMQ7E5SNCX7

Screen 1:
This is an overview of the 9 external links, each picture should have a rollover and be clickable so it opens the destination site in a new window.

Screen 2:
This is the expanded view of the rollover on the first picture. The title moves up and a button 'Bezoek de website' is behind it and the logo comes up from behind the title. The entire background changes into a full photograph. An example of this animation can be downloaded here: https://we.tl/t-AgnMw7MsUh This example is still in an old design but it gives you a good idea of the animation we would like to have on rollover (not click). See https://www.elegantthemes.com/blog/theme-releases/divi-hover-options-have-arrived for a possible Divi solution for producing this. On click https://www.deschoolvanhip.nl/de-basisschool-van-hip/ should be opened in a new window

Screen 3:
This is the expanded view of the rollover on the second picture. Animation should be similar and on click https://www.deschoolvanhip.nl/ should open in a new window.

Screen 4:
This is the expanded view of the rollover on the third picture. Animation should be similar and on click https://www.instituuthip.nl/ should open in a new window.

Screen 5:
This is the expanded view of the rollover on the fourth picture. Animation should be similar and on click https://www.declubvanhip.nl/ should open in a new window.

Screen 6:
This is the expanded view of the rollover on the fifth picture. Animation should be similar and on click https://hip-online.nl/ should open in a new window.

Screen 7:
This is the expanded view of the rollover on the sixth picture. Animation should be similar and on click https://www.hipdiagnostiekenadvies.nl/ should open in a new window.

Screen 8:
This is the expanded view of the rollover on the seventh picture. Animation should be similar and on click https://hipfoundation.nl/ should open in a new window.

Screen 9:
This is the expanded view of the rollover on the eight picture. Animation should be similar and on click https://peperklip.nl/ should open in a new window.

Screen 10:
This is the expanded view of the rollover on the ninth picture. Animation should be similar and on click https://www.instituuthip.nl/vestigingen/hoofdkantoor/should open in a new window.

Screen 11:
This is the mobile phone view of the homepage. No rollover animations here, just clicks to the external sites.

General notes:

- On the top right, there are 2 navigation links "Hip Holding" and "Contact". The first one is a (same window) link to a content page. We have no content or design for it yet. "Contact" will probably be a page with the contact information and a simple Divi contact form. We have no content or design for it yet. However maybe you can make them clickable and set up the (empty) pages for it.

- The font used in the design is Helvetica but please use Open Sans in stead. (This font can be configured from within Divi directly.)

Materials:

Here you'll find the design source file and most of the logo's:
