What’s new?

  • Installing and configuring a database, message broker, web server, worker processes, local smtp server, (and who knows what else!)
  • Other processes would normally be defined in other Dockerfiles but you dont even need to worry about that; in this example, we use 3 readymade containers for our databases and message broker.
  • Lets walk through this example: – – We have 7 different containers in our formation: web, clock, worker, shell, postgres, rabbitmq, and redis.
  • The postgres, rabbitmq, and redis containers, on the other hand, are built from prebuilt images which are found on the Docker Store.
  • Ok, our server architecture includes 3 process types that run your application code; we have our web process that is responsible for serving web requests and pushing work to a job queue; we have our worker process that is responsible for pulling jobs off the queue and doing the work;…

  • Create a file called main.js where we will keep our startup code for our application.
  • A module is (usually) a pure JavaScript file like other JavaScript files in our projects.
  • But requiring a file is not enough, we also need to tell Node.js which functions, objects, variables, etc. will be available after requiring.
  • In this script we have told Node.js that the responder module lives in a directory named custom_modules inside the parent directory of the current script.
  • Keep practicing by writing backend web applications with Node.js and keep your eyes open for new articles on this blog.

  • At DrupalCon Vienna, the core JavaScript team membersdecided to adopt a more modern approach to using JavaScript in Drupal to build administrative interfaces, with efforts centred around the React framework from Facebook.
  • Having completed this, we identified a number of major disadvantages to our approach: Although we were creating a component library that could be re-used, essentially we were embedding individual JavaScript applications into different pages of a Drupal theme Our legacy JavaScript was mixed in on the page alongside the new…
  • We don’t want to force Drupal’s PHP developers also to have to know the ins-and-outs of the JavaScript ecosystem to build module administration forms, but we also don’t want developers coming from the world of JavaScriptwith promises of We use React now, so this will be familiar to you!
  • Using this feature, and trying to keep in mind realistic timelines for launching a fully decoupled admin theme, the team decided that our current path forward will involve several parallel efforts: Adapt the new designs to a regular Drupal theme, so the fallback isn’t jarring for the user Build sections…
  • Some of the major questions we’re trying to answer are: How and what is a Drupal module able to do to extend the administration UI We’re not looking to deprecate the current Drupal theming system, so how can modules indicate which mode they support If a module wants to provide…
