On the first edition of The Knife Block, Dustin shares his tools of the trade, from hardware to software, and even music recommendations.
Recently, I was faced with an interesting challenge; develop a system for importing thousands of hand-build sites into Drupal. One of the tools that we encountered in our research was import.io, a web data platform and web scraping tool. This blog post will take you through the steps of using import.io to bring content into a Drupal site.
Using Sass and Gulpjs, you can write a custom theme for Gnome Shell quickly, and painlessly.
CSS generated content is cool. You can make those little triangles everyone seems to love, but its real purpose is to let you add presentational words that would otherwise be a pain to generate in markup for some situations.
Read on to learn how you can combine Drupal’s excellent multilingual support with CSS generated content.
While working on the DrupalCamp Austin schedule, I was surprised to find that there weren’t any Jekyll templates or plugins available for event schedules. Since it was relatively simple to put one together I want to share some code we generated in the process of hosting the event.
Like many community-driven conferences, DrupalCamp Austin is a multi-day, multi-track event with lunch breaks, keynotes, and evening events like parties. These templates were built to easily handle all of that, so if your event is similar they will probably work for you. Read on for a breakdown of our Jekyll-powered event schedule.
I’d like to demo a simple how-to. There are many, many techniques to make pages load faster, but this post attempts to demonstrate large gains from very small code changes.
Read on to see how you could make bigger and better optimizations.
Everyone does it.
drupal_add_js() and move on — or worse, throw the code in your theme. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could inline all these one-use scripts and make them appear only on the page they’re needed?
I spent several hours last night just trying to add some configurable social sharing buttons to my node pane, but I needed to use fields from the node itself within my code. After hours of Google searching, and checking versions– I finally figured out how to do what I was looking for. Part of this confusion is due to just ctools (Chaos Tool Suite) having slightly different API depending on its version. Note, I am using ctools version 7.x-1.2 and panels version 7.x-3.3.
