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.

Can Views Use an External XML Source? | Mediacurrent

Thu, 07/21/2016 - 19:42 -- rprice

Sometimes the need arises to include a list of upcoming events, recent news or job postings. The problem that sometimes occurs is the data exists on another site as an XML document. Now, you could use Feeds and periodically import those into your site as nodes and then have them set to expire (because you wouldn’t want to keep these forever). But that would take up space in your database and there’s no need for that level of complexity or trouble.

Views Filter Harmonizer | Drupal.org

Thu, 03/10/2016 - 15:58 -- rprice

This small module allows you to have a contextual filter argument apply only when there is no corresponding regular (exposed) filter value present. This is most common on initial page load. After that the contextual filters will silently retreat and let the exposed filter values as selected by the visitor do their thing without interfering. This means that you can take advantage of friendly URLs using contextual arguments instead of ugly and verbose query parameters. Put the URLs anywhere on your site, in emails and in newsletters to take visitors to tailored Views pages.
