D7 to D8 tutorial: pathinfo module

This is a live step-by-step tutorial of my process of porting pathinfo module form Drupal 7.x to Drupal 8.x as part of the global sprint weekend, March 9th-10th, 2013.

The commit of Drupal 8 I was working against is:

* 957b556 - (HEAD, origin/HEAD, origin/8.x, 8.x) Issue #1932596 by ACF: Change site_name() into config in userpasswordreset.test and formtest. (4 hours ago)


I installed a copy of Drupal 8 locally to test against. With that done:

  • Start a new branch of my module: $ git checkout -b 8.x-1.x
  • On my first push, create a new upstream branch git push --set-upstream origin 8.x-1.x
  • Create a development release

Steps to upgrade

Problem Reason Solution Commit
Can't enable module. .info files are now .info.yml files Rename file and change to YAML format. 1241617 and 4c2a072

Working with breakpoints in Drupal 8

There is no user interface for editing breakpoints in Drupal 8. Due to the fact that breakpoints are config, it's not possible to provide a UI in contrib as well.
