Static site generators

Enrico Zini's blog - Tue, 01/03/2016 - 12:36pm

I decided to rethink the state of my personal site, and try out some of the new static site generators that are available now.

To do that, I jotted down a series of things that I want in a static site generator, then wrote a tool to convert my ikiwiki site to other formats, and set out to evaluate things.

As a benchmark I did a full rebuild of my site, which currently contains 1164 static files and 458 markdown pages.

I heard you like meta...

Layout Plugin Views

Drupal Modules - Mon, 29/02/2016 - 8:19pm

Panels used to have a views row plugin in Drupal 7 which allowed users to place view's fields on panels' layouts. Since panel's layout functionality has been split off into Layout Plugin for Drupal 8, the views plugin no longer has any dependency on the Panels module. We therefore chose to also create a separate project for the views plugin to reduce the maintenance burden on the panels team.

Drupal Modules - Sat, 27/02/2016 - 9:42am

This module provides drush commands for setting up correct file permissions in your Drupal instance.

It takes care of creating sites/default/files and sites/default/private on your Drupal installation and updating them in variables table, so you don't have to do that through the UI. It also takes care of creating .htaccess files in those subdirectories. But most importantly it maintains correct permissions on those directories.
