GraphQL Meets Drupal | Mediacurrent

Thu, 07/21/2016 - 19:43 -- rprice

whilst traditional REST is the more popular approach for fetching data, it may not be the best in solving many of the problems of handling hierarchical data. In comes GraphQL, a database querying language built by Facebook, to solve the limitations of REST - which may include overfetching, under fetching, multiple round-trips, and versioning issues.

Learning to Love Blocks Again | Drupal GovCon

Tue, 05/24/2016 - 21:43 -- rprice

With the release of Drupal 8, the core blocks system is now a powerful publishing system for content in sidebars or landing pages. Blocks have types, fields, revisions and many other benefits now that they are full Entities. If you are a coder, you'll be happy to know that these block types can also be created and extended using OOP techniques.

If you still use Drupal 7, have no fear! The Drupal 8 Block improvements are largely a port of the Bean module (Block Entities Aren't Nodes). Many of the techniques outlined in this session will be applicable to Drupal 7 with Beans.

I've been writing a lot about what I believe is important for the future of Drupal, but now it is your turn. After every major release of Drupal I do a "product management survey" to get your ideas and data on what to focus on for future releases of Drupal (8.x/9).

Yes, Drupal 8 is slower than Drupal 7 - here's why | Jeff Geerling

Thu, 03/31/2016 - 13:21 -- rprice

The image above illustrates how BigPipe can help even slow-to-render pages deliver usable content to the browser very quickly. If you have a block in a sidebar that pulls in some data from an external service, or only one tiny user-specific block (like a "Welcome, Jeff!" widget with a profile picture) that takes a half second or longer to render, Drupal can now serve the majority of a page immediately, then send the slower content when it's ready.
