26 September, 2014

Have you ever tried including an HTML page inside another HTML document? Before HTML imports, you had to work around this problem using iFrames or AJAX, both pretty inconvenient for the task. HTML imports solves this problem elegantly. It hasn’t been long since I started using it, but I found it such an amazingly useful tool that I wanted to share my experiences with you.

Behat coverage for all of Drupal - how it could be done

2 July, 2014

There is a lot of excitement in the Drupal community about Behat, especially from more advanced teams that are investing in their Devops infrastructure. It now even looks like Behat might some day make it into Drupal core. I guess that is why several Web development teams that use BDD (Behavior-Driven Development) have asked me how WalkHub relates to Behat. I’ve written a longer post on the WalkHub blog that explains how it could be done, and what the benefits would be. In this post I will focus on how WalkHub could help the community complete the creation of Behat tests for all of Drupal core and contrib.

How to get the community to write your documentation

24 June, 2014

In the Drupal community we excel at sharing code, but we are terrible at sharing documentation. I’ve been trying to rally the Drupal community around a standard for reusable documentation for a few years now. But to get people to collaborate we needed to invent a new tool that makes it easy to create, reuse and share documentation between sites and the Drupal project at large. We have built that tool, it’s called WalkHub.

Drupal Developer Days 2014 Szeged - behind the scenes

8 April, 2014

Drupal Dev Days Szeged was a great opportunity for me to realize and take part in one of Kristof’s crazy ideas (well, almost as crazy as Drupalcon 2008 was ;) with some great people from the community. While the event turned out to be a success, I’ve learnt a lot that I would like to share with all future organizers through this blog post and other channels.
