Configuration override system | Drupal.org

Wed, 11/09/2016 - 21:13 -- rprice

Drupal 8's configuration system handles configuration in a unified manner. By default, Drupal stores configuration data in the database, but it can be exported to YAML files, allowing the configuration to be managed by version control. There are cases however when configuration values need to be overridden for specific purposes. Drupal 7 had the global $conf variable that was usually populated in settings.php with conditional override values for configuration. A big drawback of that system was that the overrides crept into actual configuration.

Entity CRUD, editing, and view hooks | entity.api.php | Drupal 8.2.x | Drupal API

Thu, 10/20/2016 - 13:34 -- rprice

Entity create, read, update, and delete (CRUD) operations are performed by entity storage classes; see the Entity API topic for more information. Most entities use or extend the default classes: \Drupal\Core\Entity\Sql\SqlContentEntityStorage for content entities, and \Drupal\Core\Config\Entity\ConfigEntityStorage for configuration entities. For these entities, there is a set of hooks that is invoked for each CRUD operation, which module developers can implement to affect these operations; these hooks are actually invoked from methods on \Drupal\Core\Entity\EntityStorageBase.

Will Composer be a barrier for sitebuilders to use Drupal 8? (Goodbye, tarballs and drush dl!) | Marc Drummond

Thu, 08/18/2016 - 12:36 -- rprice

As time goes on, I imagine more and more contrib modules will make use of Composer dependencies. As soon as your Drupal site needs just one contrib module with Composer dependencies, your entire site needs to be managed with Composer.
