Wednesday, May 27, 2015 - 18:3021st Century Library - Room B 6

This is usually one of the most popular and useful meetings of the year. Anyone who went to DrupalCon LA will come in to talk about the most insightful, future-facing and sometimes ridiculous things at DrupalCon.

  • If you went to DrupalCon LA, come with your major learnings and observations.
  • If you weren't there, you can get a great idea of what online videos you might want to dive in to.

Location. We're at the great 21st Century Library, but I was able to get the bigger conference room, B6.

p.s. Mark your calendar for DrupalCamp Colorado 2015 on June 20 and 21. Want to help? Please volunteer.

April 2015 Southern Colorado Drupal Meetup

Posted by Monarch Digital Drupalgive on April 10, 2015 at 4:13pm
Wednesday, April 15, 2015 - 18:3021st Century Library - Room B 2

The latest and greatest in Drupal and the rest of the web technology world.

As Drupal has become more of an enterprise development platform, interfacing with the rest of the web technology world is becoming more common and critical. In fact, Drupal 8 itself is incorporating many technologies not developed by the Drupal community.

Latest & greatest. With all of your contributions, we'll review the latest and greatest topics featured at DrupalCon LA, sharing all of our opinions on it: "Go", "No Go", or "I'll Wait".

Most of Monarch Digital will be at DrupalCon. At our next meeting, we'll be reporting on the best from DrupalCon LA. If you're going, please plan on sharing also.

Theming. The Drupal 8 theming layer is completely different and based upon TWIG. We'll overview the differences in theming in Drupal 7 and Drupal 8. See how you would actually develop a theme in Drupal 8.

Real life conversions. Have you converted a site to Drupal 8 yet? Share your experiences.

War stories. If we have time, we can share some stories from the field on technical anomalies we (all) have recently encountered. "I just entered some new content to the body of my page and now it white screens!"

Time and location. We have all been enjoying the great meeting rooms and great internet connectivity of the 21st Century Library. You'll see that this meeting is later in the month that usual. It's getting more difficult to find available rooms as the community discovers this great facility.

Views Default View Override

Posted by Zivtech (Drupalgive) on February 17, 2015 at 6:19pm

Many modules (most notably commerce) provide default views to define much of their interface but hard code the view that is used to render that interface. That means that modifications to these views cannot easily be deployed in code or otherwise managed via tools like features.

Media Internet Text Widget

Posted by Zivtech (Drupalgive) on February 17, 2015 at 6:16pm

If all you want is an "embed video" URL, the media picker library widget can be overkill and can be confusing. Media Internet Text Widget allows you to just provide the media URL/Embed code field that is present on the "Web" tab of the "Media File Selector" widget.

Facetapi Select

Posted by Zivtech (Drupalgive) on February 17, 2015 at 6:12pm

Facetapi Select adds an option for a select (dropdown) display for search facets using facetapi. The select form loads by js (no need to click 'submit') but degrades to use submit button.

Bear Skin

Posted by Zivtech (Drupalgive) on February 17, 2015 at 6:10pm

Bear Skin is the default theme for the Bear starter profile, which is a profile to use as a starter kit when building a new site. Bear Skin does not rely on the profile, but can be used as a simple, clean theme. Bear Skin is somewhere between a pure starter theme and a more styled theme. It can be used as a starter theme that will be heavily customized, or, for smaller projects, it can be lightly customized and give you a nice looking responsive theme with little work.

Page Manager Templates

Posted by Zivtech (Drupalgive) on February 17, 2015 at 6:00pm

Page Manager Templates is for developers who use Page Manager/Panels.

Do you have some pages on your site that you could best build and modify with hand-written HTML templates rather than Panels? Do you already do this sometimes by creating your own hook_menu (or hook_menu_alter) and hook_theme implementations? This module will make this process faster and your architecture more consistent.

This project aims to provide simple encryption method for using asymmetric gnupg (pgp) crypt algorithm.
The idea behind this is to have a way for encrypting data by using public key without even possibility to decrypt it on server side, because there is no private key within a server's filesystem at all.
