DrupalCon North America 2022 Driesnote presentation

Last week, 1,300 Drupalists gathered in Portland, Oregon for DrupalCon North America. It was the first in-person DrupalCon in more than two years. I can't tell you how amazing it was to see everyone face-to-face.

In good tradition, I delivered my State of Drupal keynote. You can watch the video of my keynote or download my slides (262 MB).

I covered a lot of ground in this presentation, so I broke my written summary into a three-part blog series. Part 1 below is focuses on Drupal 10 updates. I'll be publishing Part 2 and Part 3 later this week, which will focus on Drupal's evolved purpose/vision and Drupal 11 proposed initiatives.

Drupal stands with Ukraine

I couldn't begin my presentation without acknowledging the loss of life and destruction in Ukraine. It's impacting many in the Drupal community, which is heartbreaking.

You may not be aware, but Ukraine is the sixth most active country in the world in terms of Drupal contributions. If you were to look at these contributions per capita, Ukraine's contributions are even more significant.

Both myself and the Drupal Association strongly condemn the Russian attacks on Ukraine. Many of us might want to know how to help. The Drupal Association has compiled a list of organizations that are accepting charitable donations.

Updates on Drupal 10

From there, I gave an update on Drupal 10. We had targeted a Drupal 10 release date of June 2022, but we made the decision to postpone until December 2022.

We had to move the date back because we have more work to do on the CKEditor 5 migration path. We're upgrading from CKEditor 4 to CKEditor 5. CKEditor 5 is a complete rewrite, with no upgrade path or backwards compatibility.

The Drupal community (and Acquia in particular) has spent thousands of hours working on an upgrade path for CKEditor to make the upgrade easy for all Drupal users. While that has gone well, we need some additional time to work through the remaining upgrade challenges. Fortunately, we are getting great support from CKSource, the company behind CKEditor.

Next, I walked through three important facts about Drupal 10.

  1. Symfony 6.2 Drupal 10 will upgrade Symfony – a PHP framework that Drupal relies on heavily – from Symfony 4 to Symfony 6.2. At the time of the Drupal 10 release, Symfony 6.2 will be the latest and greatest release. For planning purposes, if you use Symfony components in your custom Drupal modules, you will have to upgrade those to Symfony 6.x.
  2. PHP 8.1 We have changed the minimum PHP requirement from PHP 7.4 for Drupal 9 to PHP 8.1 for Drupal 10. This is in large part because Symfony 6.2 will require PHP 8.1. Drupal users will benefit from various improvements in the new version of PHP. It also means you might have to upgrade any custom code. Because Drupal 9.3 works with PHP 8.1, you could start that work now with Drupal 9.3. It's a good way to prepare for Drupal 10.
  3. Drupal 9 end-of-life Drupal 9 end-of-life will happen in November 2023. Once Drupal 10 is released, you will have 11 months to upgrade your Drupal 9 sites to Drupal 10. The good news is, this should be the easiest upgrade in the history of Drupal. On Drupal 9's release date, 71% of deprecated API uses in contributed projects had automated conversions. Today, 93% of deprecated API uses for Drupal 10 across all contributed projects have automated conversions. And we're working on getting that even higher by the time that Drupal 10 is released.

With that, I provided some exciting updates on the five major Drupal 10 initiatives.

Olivero

Drupal's new frontend theme, named Olivero, is now stable. It's the most accessible theme we've ever shipped. During DrupalCon, Olivero also became the default theme for Drupal 10. Everyone who installs Drupal 10 will be greeted by a new frontend theme. That is significant because we used the current default theme, Bartik, for 11 years.

Claro

Drupal's new backend theme, called Claro, also became the new default administration theme at DrupalCon. Another major milestone and reason to celebrate!

Starterkit

Starterkit, a new way of creating themes in Drupal, is on track to be stable by Drupal 10's new release date. Releasing Starterkit means that we can move faster with theming improvements in Drupal Core. It also means that end users won't need to worry about whether upgrading Drupal breaks any of their sites' themes.

Instead of sub-theming a core base theme, Starterkit generates a starter theme for you from its latest defaults. This new theme will be more of a clone or fork, and will not have a runtime dependency on a core base theme.

CKEditor 5

We have made great progress on our content authoring experience. Check out this video for the latest update:

Automated updates

Automated updates, the Drupal community's number one feature request, is progressing well.

The plan is to have Automatic Updates in one of the first minor versions of Drupal 10, or even in 10.0 in December if the community can help us test and finalize it in time. Check out this video to learn more:

In Parts 2 and 3 of this blog series later this week, I'll focus on our strategy and proposed initiatives for Drupal 11.

I'd like to thank everyone who made our first in-person DrupalCon in two years a reality. It was amazing to see everyone's faces again and collaborate in person. Your contributions and hard work, as always, are inspiring to me!

I would also like to thank all the people that helped with my keynote. In no particular order, they are: Ash SullivanAlex BronsteinMatthew GrasmickGábor HojtsyJess (xjm)Ted BowmanBaddý Sonja BreidertLeslie GlynnTim LehnenAdam BergsteinAdam GoodmanThéodore Biadala, and Alex Pott.

Chapter Three: Avoid a Drupal 9 Migration Headache: Use NEXT-DRUPAL to Upgrade Your Drupal 7 Site

Main Drupal Feed - Mon, 05/02/2022 - 19:35
Drupal 7 and PHP’s end-of-life are right around the corner and many people are thinking about the best path forward.* The three options tend to be: a.) traditional “Lift and Shift” to Drupal 9, b.) “Lift, Shift and Improve a few things,” and c.) “totally rethink,” and rebuild the site. Each option produces a complex Drupal 9 site. Many Drupal 7 sites are layers of back-end code, complex front-end code, and content types that have evolved over the years. At first glance, the upgrade process seems insurmountably expensive, and not worth it.  But we think there’s a better way. Chapter Three believes our Drupal 9 and Next.js integration, NEXT-Drupal (www.Next-Drupal.org) is a modern solution to upgrade your Drupal 7 site, giving you excellent installation of Drupal 9 and a great decoupled front-end! In other words, a true headless CMS. The best of both worlds!

DevCollaborative - Planet Drupal: Affordable, Quality Hosting Alternatives: How to Set Up Drupal on Amezmo

Main Drupal Feed - Mon, 05/02/2022 - 15:05
Hosting services with built-in tools based on modern development best practices save dev teams time and headaches, and save our clients money. Although Pantheon is a gold standard in modern hosting in terms of quality, it’s not a good fit for every organization we serve in terms of its pricing model. So we have spent the last few years actively searching for affordable, high quality alternatives that still meet our requirements and standards. Our most successful experiment to date has been on Amezmo hosting. 

#! code: Drupal 9: Using Lazy Builders

Main Drupal Feed - Sun, 05/01/2022 - 17:40

The lazy builder API in Drupal allows the creation of highly dynamic content within a render array without having to disable the cache for the entire render array or the page the content is attached to. What this means in real terms is that the initial render array can be cached quite heavily, but lazy builders allows for additional rendering to be done in after the initial rendering pass to generate content.

There are several reasons why lazy builders might be useful. The most useful reasons are to present some highly personalised or dynamic content to a user, but you might also want to offset the rendering of some slow code to give it some more fine grained caching that stores the outcome in a cache bucket.

Lazy builders work by using a normal render array, but instead of rendering the content you inject a lazy builder placeholder into the content. A callback method is used to tell Drupal how to inject the content into the placeholder. Then, at a later stage of the rendering process, Drupal will call the callback function and replace the placeholder with the actual content.

If the Big Pipe module is installed then you can also benefit from the page being streamed to the user in parts. This means that if your render function is slow then it won't cause the rest of the page to be slow. The Big Pipe module will add in placeholders to the markup as the render array is generated that are then sent to the browser first. The footer of the page is then rendered and sent separately and JavaScript is used to replace the placeholders with the actual content.

Whilst lazy building doesn't provide you with performance benefits, it can be used in conjunction with Big Pipe to mask those problems so that your page will appear to load quickly.

Web Wash: How to Host and Deploy Drupal Sites using Cloudways

Main Drupal Feed - Fri, 04/29/2022 - 01:37

Cloudways is a managed cloud hosting provider which allows you to host and deploy Drupal sites on popular cloud platforms. They don’t host your site, instead you choose a cloud provider, i.e., DigitalOcean, Linode, AWS and so on.

The benefit of using Cloudways is that you can start on a cheap server and upgrade as needed. You get the same features if you spend $20 or $100 per month. As your site gets more traffic you can scale up to a faster server.

The server provisioning and application management is all done via the Cloudways platform. For example, if you use DigitalOcean, you won’t have to create a separate account to manage the server. You can do everything via Cloudways platform.

The servers come configured with PHP, Apache, MariaDB, Varnish, Redis (uninstalled by default) and so on.

Once provisioned you’ll be able to host an unlimited number of Drupal sites on a single server. You’ll need to make sure your server has enough resources, i.e., RAM and CPU.

Other hosting platforms charge per site and traffic. Cloudways only charger per server and you can install as many websites as the server and bandwidth can handle.

In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to install and deploy a Drupal site on Cloudways.

We’ll cover how to install and run Drupal in two ways:

  • How to manually install Drupal via SSH
  • How to Deploy Drupal using GitHub

Cloudways doesn’t have a one-click install for Drupal. You will need to be comfortable with Composer and using SSH to get into a server. If you want to deploy your Drupal site via Git then you’ll need to be comfortable using GitHub.

Droptica: What Drupal Development Tools are Worth Using? 7 Handy Solutions

Main Drupal Feed - Thu, 04/28/2022 - 06:41

When creating websites on Drupal, as developers, we should try to make our job easier. Managing modules, users, generating code – all these processes can be automated and performed with single commands. In this article, we'll take a look at the tools available and discuss them, giving specific examples of use.

1. Drupal Console

Drupal Console is a powerful Command Line Interface. It's used to generate boilerplate code and maintain and debug Drupal. The latest version of this tool is v1.9.8, released on 28 November 2021.

To add Drupal Console to our project, all we need to do is use one command:

composer require drupal/console:~1.0 \ --prefer-dist \ --optimize-autoloader

After that, we can use various commands provided by Drupal Console. We provide some examples below.

Module generation:

drupal generate:module \ --module="modulename" \ --machine-name="modulename" \ --module-path="/modules/custom" \ --description="My Awesome Module" \ --core="8.x" \ --package="Custom" \ --module-file \ --composer \ --test \ --twigtemplate

Entity generation:

drupal generate:entity:content \ --module="modulename" \ --entity-class="DefaultEntity" \ --entity-name="default_entity" \ --base-path="/admin/structure" \ --label="Default entity" \ --is-translatable \ --revisionable --has-forms

Service generation:

drupal generate:service \ --module="modulename" \ --name="modulename.default" \ --class="DefaultService" \ --interface \ --interface-name="InterfaceName" \ --path-service="/modules/custom/modulename/src/"

User creation:

drupal user:create username password \ --roles='authenticated' \ --email="username@testing.com" \ --status="1"

As we can see, Drupal Console gives us a lot of possibilities. Another interesting option that this Command Line Interface (CLI) provides us with is running a local PHP server to test our website.

$ drupal server

This command will launch a local server on port 8088 for us.

2. Examples for Developers

The Examples for Developers project is one great collection of examples of how we can write our own modules in Drupal. We have 33 different modules at our disposal, from simple blocks, through various types of forms, to controllers with REST API support. We'll probably find everything we need. This module will allow us to learn new things and work faster.

3. Devel

The Devel module includes additional functions and help pages for developers and administrators. It provides us with blocks and toolbars for quick access and developer information. We can use it to “simulate” another user. It's a very helpful functionality, especially when we need to test roles and permissions in Drupal. Devel provides us with features that help us with debugging. And the icing on the cake – we can use it to generate test content.

To install this module, we use Composer.

composer require --dev drupal/devel 4. Weight

Sometimes, it happens in our project that we use modules that use the same hooks. By default, Drupal doesn't allow to choose the order of module execution. However, we can work around this limitation in three ways.

Method 1 – setting the Drupal module weight during its installation

In the install file of our module, we can add HOOK_install and use it to set the module weight.

Drupal 9 provides a built-in feature to deal with this issue:

function your_module_name_install() { module_set_weight('[your_module_name]', [your_preferred_weight]); }

It's a little more complicated in Drupal 7, because we have to change this field in the database by ourselves:

function your_module_name_install() { db_update('system') ->fields(array('weight' => your_preferred_weight)) ->condition('name', '[your_module_name]', '=') ->execute(); } Method 2 – Changing the weight in core.extension.yml

If we use configurations in our project, we can change the weight of our module in the core.extension.yml file after exporting them. The weight is shown as a number after the module name. The larger the weight, the earlier the methods in the module will be executed.

Method 3 – using Modules weight

The Modules weight Drupal module will add an easy-to-use configuration of module weights. When we go to the configuration page (/admin/config/system/modules-weight/configuration), we'll see this:

Here we can easily set the weights of our modules.

5. Settings.php and services.yml

We can find these two files in the sites folder of our Drupal installation. With just a few lines, we can make developing software a lot easier. It's a good idea to create a settings.dev.php file and put all the changes in it. During development, we can include it in the main settings.php file and remove it when we upload our website to the server.

An even more convenient option is to use an environment variable such as ENV and set it to "dev". Next, we check in settings.php if there's a settings.$env.php file. If so, we include it.

$env = getenv("D_ENV"); if (file_exists($app_root . '/' . $site_path . '/settings.' . $env . '.php')) { include $app_root . '/' . $site_path . '/settings.' . $env . '.php'; }

We can keep all our support changes for development in the settings.dev.php file.

What exactly can we do there?

1. Enable error display in addition to the message that our website has encountered a problem.

$config['system.logging']['error_level'] = 'verbose';

2. Disable CSS and JS aggregation – something we often forget when editing JS styles or scripts.

$config['system.performance']['css']['preprocess'] = FALSE; $config['system.performance']['js']['preprocess'] = FALSE;

3. Disable render cache:

$settings['cache']['bins']['render'] = 'cache.backend.null';

4. Include the development.services.yml file.

$settings['container_yamls'][] = $app_root . '/' . $site_path . '/development.services.yml';

The content of the latter file may look like the one we show below.

parameters: twig.config: debug: true auto_reload: null cache: false services: cache.backend.null: class: Drupal\Core\Cache\NullBackendFactory

We enable Twig debugging. These are helpful comments in the HTML structure that'll make it easier for us to find a template file or create hooks. In addition, we disable cache. Also, we add the cache.backend.null service, which we used earlier to disable the render cache.

6. Lando

It's a tool that facilitates the local development of our website. It allows us to run literally anything and is based on Docker. We have CLI at our disposal, which allows us to easily manage our installations. To set up a Drupal installation locally, all we need is a few commands.

First, we create a Drupal project using Composer.

composer create-project drupal/recommended-project lando-demo

Then, we go to the created directory and run the command:

lando init
  • Choose drupal9 as the recipe,
  • name your webroot web,
  • and then name your project.

After this process, a .lando.yml file will be created. We'll find there a lot of different information, such as the name of our project, what services we use (initially, these will include appserver and database), addresses of our application, PHP version, or access data for our database.

Next, we run the command

lando start

Now we can go to the address given in .lando.yml and finish the Drupal installation.

7. Drush

A tool that every Drupal developer should know. Drush has been with us since Drupal 4.7 and is still developed. As of writing this, the latest version is 11.0.8, and it was released on 9 April 2022. Drush allows us to manage our website by importing and exporting configurations, updating the database, or cleaning the cache. Newer versions of this tool also allow us to generate code. Let's go over some useful commands:

Cache cleaning

drush cr

Configuration importing

drush cim

Configuration exporting

drush cex

Creating a one-time login link

drush uli

Module enabling

drush en module_name

Module disabling and removing

drush pmu module_name

Database updating

drush updb

Watchdog checking (dblog module)

drush ws

When it comes to code generation, we have a lot of options to choose from. We recommend using the command

drush generate

and finding the option that interests us the most.

Drupal development tools - summary

We went through some interesting tools that we can use when working with Drupal. As we can see, Drupal development can be quite quick and pleasant when we know the tools that make the job easier. It's good to take some time to explore these solutions. This investment will pay for itself quickly!

Matt Glaman: Improve the Drupal developer experience to empower the Ambitious Site Builder

Main Drupal Feed - Wed, 04/27/2022 - 23:04

Today at DrupalCon we had the infamous Driesnote. The tone of the Driesnote focused on what we, as a project, should strategically focus on while building features on the Drupal 10.x.x branch. Dries wants to bring Drupal back to its roots by focusing on the site builder audience. This includes automatic updates, the project browser, and reimagining distributions as composable starter kits. This blog is an extension of a tweet I made at lunch, before catching my airplane home.

Note: Dries has not yet published the slides on his website and I didn't grab any pictures of the slides from my phone. I am sure you can find many on Twitter, though.
