Supercharge Drupal 8 migration process by externalizing data export and transformation.

When having to import data onto a Drupal 8 site there is no other choice than relying on core’s Migrate API and its contrib ecosystem. At Nuvole we have adopted a so called "middle-format approach". The process simply moves the Extract and Transform parts outside Drupal so to ease the production of an easy to import dataset, in a well known middle-format (such as JSON API).

Key points from our configuration management sessions.

Unfortunately none of us from Nuvole are attending DrupalCon Baltimore and can’t, therefore, attend the “hallway track” and join discussions in person. We have held presentations about advanced configuration management in Drupal 8 at all Drupal events we attended in the last year including the last DrupalCon in Dublin. So I’ll try to cover some concepts here that could help the discussion about how the configuration management can be improved.

Our presentation at DrupalCon Dublin 2016

Developers often want to use Configuration Management outside its intended use case. New workflows and practices have to be established. We've just presented a gallery of problems and solutions at DrupalCon Dublin 2016. The room was packed, and many people were denied admission for security reasons. For them, and for those who didn't manage to come to this DrupalCon, we are making the full presentation available here:

Make the most out of your Behat tests by using custom contexts, dependency injection and much more.

This post is an excerpt from the topics covered by our DrupalCon Dublin training: Drupal 8 Development - Workflows and Tools. At Nuvole we consider writing good tests as a fundamental part of development and, when it comes to testing a complex site, there is nothing better than extensive behavioral tests using Behat. The benefits of such a choice are quite obvious:

Use Features together with a configuration management workflow and get the best of both worlds.

Features for Drupal 8 will exist and it is already in alpha state. This may be surprising to some, given the partial overlap with Configuration Management: but Features and Configuration Management will complement each other in Drupal 8 if both are used the right way.

Bringing "reusable features" to Drupal 8.

Configuration Management in Drupal 8 elegantly solves staging configuration between different environments but it still misses the ability to package configuration into separates modules for later reuse. A patched version of the Configuration development module helps addressing that!

What CMI will bring to D8 and "Poorman's Features" for packaging configuration in D8

We have always told attendees of our Drupal 7 "Code-driven development" trainings that embracing the idea that configuration must be stored in files and not in the database would make their Drupal development future-ready: the specific processes would necessarily change but the concept would stay and be reinforced in Drupal 8, thanks to the nice work being done in the Configuration Management Initiative.

Public sites, private groups and organization of events with Open Atrium

At Nuvole we have always supported the idea that Open Atrium can deal with complex use cases. Modules like Spaces, PURL and Organic groups can push the limit of the platform far beyond being a simple-yet-powerful intranet software. We were already experimenting with building public websites and simple distributions-like mini-sites with Open Atrium for quite some time, but now the new Alfa Puentes project gave us the opportunity to blend together all those customizations in one powerful platform.
