Planet Drupal - 21. November 2017 - 4:49

We recently Open Sourced our temporary environment builder, M8s. In this blog post we will be demoing everything you need to get started!

by Nick Schuch / 21 November 2017 Introduction

In this video we will introduce you to M8s and the problem which it is solving.

Provisioning a M8s cluster

Now that you are acquainted with the M8s project, it's time to get a cluster provisioned!

In this video we will setup a Google Kubernetes Engine cluster and deploy the M8s API components.

Setting up CircleCI

Now that our M8s cluster is up and running, it's time to setup our pipeline to run a build.

In this video we will be configuring CircleCI to run the M8s CLI.

Pushing a topic branch

It's time to put it all together!

In this video we will be pushing a topic branch to demonstrate how M8s interacts with a Pipeline.


You made it to the finale! In this video we will be checking out the build environment and how a developer can access the Mailhog and Solr containers.


To learn more about the M8s project you can go and checkout:

We welcome any and all feedback via Twitter and our Github Project issues page.

Drupal core announcements: JavaScript Framework Initiative update, 2017-11-20

Planet Drupal - 20. November 2017 - 22:27

The objective of the JavaScript Framework Initiative is to modernize Drupal core's JavaScript, to make Drupal core backend improvements that enable us to build UIs with JavaScript, and to explore where Drupal can benefit from using a JavaScript framework.

We have weekly meetings on Mondays at 18:30 UTC in #javascript in Drupal Slack. Anyone is welcome to join!

Notes from the November 20 meeting:

  1. @drpal's update on the past week's work
  2. Using as a way to generate React forms without requiring developers to learn React. Possible replacement for Form API. Is this something that seems viable / a good idea?
    • The way they use JSON schema is valuable; not necessarily the implementation.
      Related core issue:
    • Explore separate react-ui and react-json-schema. tim.plunkett has code locally for the schema piece and will post a patch.
  3. Initiative communication
  4. What's the next UI after dblog?
  5. What are the next steps around the React DBLog prototype + component ui library, json schema forms?
    • Take Tim’s work and try to generate form components from Drupal data
    • Do we want to actually add a new dblog to core or is it solely for an experiment?

Understanding Drupal 8's Migrate API

This past weekend, I was honored to be able to present a session at 2017's New England Drupal Camp (NEDCamp) about Drupal 8's Migrate API. Redfin has implemented many Drupal 8 migrations to date both from CSV data sources and legacy Drupal sites (Drupal 6 and 7). As a result, we want to share with you what we've learned in hopes of saving you the time often spent in the trials and errors of data migration.

Jacob Rockowitz: Hey Drupal: Don't forget about the little guy…

Planet Drupal - 20. November 2017 - 21:31

DrupalCamp Atlanta was such a great experience -- I can't decide if it was a great end to a good year or the beginning of even a better year. My last blog post was about organizing and presenting the Webform training materials, which was in preparation for my three-hour Webform training at DrupalCamp Atlanta. Suffice it to say, it was an enlightening experience. Not to mention I learned a few things...

First off, I am in awe of all the people in the Drupal community that are 'professional trainers'. The ability to understand and explain something as complex as Drupal is no easy task. The 14 attendees at my Webform training had various skill levels. Because my leg did not nervously shake at all during my three hours at the podium, I can finally say my comfort level with public speaking is increasing. I also came away with some invaluable, practical information. Prior to attending DrupalCampAtlanta, I had completely underestimated how hard it is to coordinate people to do hands-on exercises, like installing and building a webform. After the first hour of the training, I took a break and decided that the hands-on exercises were going to be impossible to accomplish in the remaining two hours, and that the training should instead focus on walking through all the material while answering any questions. I haven’t given up hope on being able to do hands-on exercises, however, I do need to rethink my approach. Fortunately, I was able to attend other sessions, watch some 'profession trainers' in action, and learn a few things.

Michael Anello (ultimike) at DrupalEasy is a 'professional trainer'. He knows how to talk Drupal to people that don't yet "grok" Drupal. I attended Mike's Read More

Drupal Association blog: Please Welcome Our New Drupal Association Staff

Planet Drupal - 20. November 2017 - 17:06

The Drupal Association is excited to expand its team with two new staff members who are filing the roles Conference Director and Community Liaison. Please join me in welcoming Brooke Candelaria and Rachel Lawson. Both are going to add great value to the Drupal Association team as well as to the Drupal community.

Conference Director

We are excited for Brooke Candelaria, our new Conference Director, to join the team. She will infuse DrupalCon with ideas that draw on her extensive technology event experience in open source - Python specifically. In addition to taking over DrupalCon North America planning, Brooke will be a great partner in finding the best way to deliver DrupalCon globally. In addition to Brooke’s expertise, she brings enthusiastic energy to everything she does whether that is planning events or volunteering for the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. Brooke resides in Houston, Texas, USA.

Community Liaison

The team is equally excited that Rachel Lawson has agreed to join the team as our new Community Liaison where she will engage with the Drupal community to build a better relationship and understanding between the Drupal Association and the community. Rachel is well suited for this position given her background as a Drupal developer as well as her communications experience in the pharmaceutical industry. Even more impressive is that Rachel has been in the Drupal community for over 11 years and played many important roles such as Community Working Group member, Sprint Lead and mentor, DrupalCon and camp presenter, and more. Rachel has demonstrated time and again that she is a great communicator and has a natural talent to rally people behind a common goal. While you will see Rachel mostly online, she will still be touring Drupal events on her motorbike. Rachel resides in Norfolk, UK.
