With several projects in their final stages of development, many of our staff were tight on hours so their time for contributions was reduced. As always though, we managed to get some good contributions out the door.
- Anthony Fournier worked on some Instagram Social Feed improvements for a client that was switching over from the Drupagram module, and worked on some problems with the Media Entity suite on Drupal 8.
- Dan Poland continued work on testing and refining some patches for the Deploy suite.
- While looking at options for treating Drupal as a static site generator, I worked on a patch to fix the Wget Static module on a Mac that uses Homebrew and a patch for the Static Generator module when CSS & JS files use parent-relative paths.
As suggested earlier, our internal time was greatly reduced during the month due to many projects being finished off.
- Mark Shropshire continued work on porting Guardr and related modules to Drupal 8.
- Michelle Cox continued her solo mission to keep the drupal.org sites spam-free.
- I put together a Homebrew formula for installing Solr 5.4 for compatibility with Search API Solr on D7 and to fix a syntax change in Homebrew's existing formulae. I also worked on Panels, Panelizer and CTools issues for regressions from their recent releases, and continued to move Metatag towards a 1.0 release for Drupal 8.
Just two items this month.
- Chris Runo wrote about using the Migrate system in Drupal 8.
- Michelle Williamson wrote about the intersection of accessibility and SEO.
NEDCamp started on September 30th in Manchester, NH and a number of Mediacurrent staff members were in attendance, with Matt Goodwin and I giving presentations. We also organized a code sprint for Metatag for the 30th, which coincide with the sprint day at DrupalCon Dublin.
Until next time
That's it for the third quarter of 2016 - we're into the Fall / Autumn already! We're looking forward to foliage changing color, sharing recipes for seasonal pies and preparing for the winter, while our staff in the South continue fishing and wondering what all the fuss is about. Until next month, stay safe and make sure to enjoy some of the season's fresh apple cider.
