What can the WordPress community learn from the State of Drupal? | Open Parenthesis

Mon, 06/09/2014 - 16:32 -- rprice

WordPress can help retain the Open Web. I was disheartened to hear Dries say basically we can’t stop the open web from closing. I don’t disagree with him about the increasing dominance of a few key players in our daily lives online, but I think the antidote to that is the continued presence of many smaller players, enabled by technologies like WordPress. The IndieWebCamp movement, BarCamp, and WordCamp all suggest to me a strong and vibrant future for the truly open web.

Getting off the island in 2013 | GarfieldTech

Fri, 01/04/2013 - 08:51 -- rprice

Drupal finally began replacing NIH with PIE. Compare Drupal's 8.x branch a year ago with it today. A year ago, we had one class of 3rd party PHP code, in an uninteresting corner of the update system. Today, it contains 3rd party code from no less than five different projects: Symfony, Doctrine, Guzzle, Assetic, and Twig. Those libraries are included via Composer, the new and ground-breaking PHP-library-management-system-that-actually-finally-works. Code from at least one more should be landing soon.

Convert menu links into entities | drupal.org

Mon, 10/15/2012 - 11:05 -- rprice

Everyone agrees menu links should be entities. Jury is out on Menus => Let us do menu links to start with and that will inform subsequent thought. We can, nevertheless, say that the original idea of menus as bundles of menu links is off the table.

I believe as fago is currently using the terms:
Property: A compound data element on an Entity (basically what we call "Fields" in Drupal 7).
Field: A special case of a Property that is user-added rather than defined by the module that declares the Entity type.

Does Drupal Target Developers? | Engineered Web

Wed, 10/10/2012 - 11:28 -- rprice

When I look through these two lists I see a lot that is developer focused. Better internal and external APIs are definitely targeted at developers and those are 2 of the 11 goals for Drupal 7. When it comes to Drupal 8 configuration management and web services are both things that have a definite impact on coders. The html 5 initiative was for front end developers. Without even digging down into these initiatives I can see a top down approach of developers as a target audience.
