Recoupled Drupal DevOps: Building Node with Composer

Are you excited about Decoupled Drupal? Do you love the idea of a "static" front-end site that builds from your Drupal content, but don't know where to start?

This session will break down how Composer has the tools needed to bring Drupal and NodeJS projects together into a single build pipeline.

How to:

  1. Install Node and NPM projects in your composer.json file.
  2. Add your decoupled front-end git repository to your composer dependencies allowing automated install and update.
  3. Create composer commands as wrappers to node commands, such as 'npm install' and content rebuild commands.
  4. Host static assets and Drupal sites on the same host from the same domain with clever .htaccess tricks.
  5. Create end-to-end tests to ensure Drupal CMS changes propagate properly to the front-end build.


Study on Motivations and Self-efficacy in Drupal and Open Source

Elaine Egan is the Director of Global Libraries & Information for an international law firm and a Ph.D. candidate with Dominican University outside Chicago. Her research is centered on knowledge sharing motivations and self-efficacy. She is focusing her study on the knowledge sharing aspects of OSS and selected Drupal as her community of study based on their culture of sharing. She is looking for a few Drupal folks who will consider participating in the research.



20% of Global searches is Voice based and in the next 2 years by 2020; this number will increase to 50%. If that does not bother a content creator or marketer! I am not sure what will!
Search is changing, and so is the way consumers choose to engage with businesses locally or globally. There is a distinct move away from screens and keyboards, and into voice-based interactions. Voice-search is becoming a fast-growing habit across consumer segments and fundamentally transforming how people and businesses transact on the internet.
