Field Notes: UI Patterns Module

UI Patterns Module

When it comes to Atomic Design systems in Drupal 8, there’s hardly a shortage of solutions to choose from. Pattern Lab and KSS Node are certainly among the most popular and the recently released Mannequin looks incredibly exciting. However, in all these aforementioned solutions, exposing that component data to Drupal has never been particularly straightforward.

Here at Hook 42, we’ve just finished developing a brand-new Drupal 8 site for a client that utilizes UI Patterns, Paragraphs, and Display Suite to allow content users to construct complex but consistent user interfaces. What follows is our “field notes” from implementing UI Patterns in a production site. Read more

Writing My First Drupal 8 Module

Drupal 8 Logo

While it’s amazing how easy it is for an experienced Drupal 7 site builder to get around using the Drupal 8 UI, the same is not true for writing code for D8. As has been made clear for years now, Drupal 8 is very different inside. Many of the hooks we know and love have gone away, most procedural code has been replaced with interfaces, classes, and methods, and there are scads of YAML (Yet Another Markup Language, .yml file extension) files that wire everything together. How does a developer get her/his footing in this slippery new landscape? Read more

Conversational Drupal

Drupal Multilingual

At BADCamp this year I had the privilege of presenting a basic introductory session for those new to Drupal. I really started thinking about myself when I started Drupal 3 1/2 years ago. There were so many terms that had specific meaning. Read more

How to Help with the Drupal 8 Contrib Porting Tracker

Drupal 8 RC2 is out and a full release is coming on November 19th! But, in order to make more great websites on Drupal 8, we need to port a bunch of contrib projects from Drupal 7 to Drupal 8. There are a LOT of contrib projects out there (over 12,000 modules, themes, and distributions!), so the new Drupal 8 Contrib Porting Tracker helps track these projects so the community can see what’s going on in a centralized place.

Keep Drupal Entity References in Sync with the CER Module

Migration and Updates Diagram

Corresponding Entity References (CER) is a very useful module if you have two entity references that talk to each other. If you update one entity reference, CER does all the work to make sure the other entity reference reflects that update. It makes it easy to quickly associate entity references without having to edit two entities. Read more
