This week in Web Dev Rev notes, we noted the ticket on Drupal.org about potentially deprecating multisite (ultimately rejected), as well as a follow-up ticket on improving documentation for multisite, and a first step to improved documentation. Conference-wise, we looked at an insider's look at proposing a session for DrupalCon, the road to speaking at DrupalCon, how to find Drupal events, and the "coolest" DrupalCamp (and how one might get there). Also: some Drupal predictions for 2017; a reminder about the Drupal global sprint weekend; opting in to accessible images on Twitter; the complexity of "input type=date"; how to create a basic notepad in a browser tab; and the state of PHP in 2017.
In this issue:
We started off with some fun - a list of Drupal songs and Drupal Lyrics. Then we moved on to the proper Web Dev Rev notes: experimental module changes coming in Drupal 8.3; Drupal 8 Migrate API is in beta; another access control module, Monster Menus; the Devel Node Access module to help debug access control; some cache primer modules - Cache Warmer, Drush Entity Cache Loader, XMLRPC Page Load, and HTTPRL Spider; design elements that front-end developers hate; colour emoji by default coming to Edge; people's names that break websites; and a look at browser support for every possible list-style-type (look at that link in various browsers to see what support there is and how unsupported types are handled).
This week in Web Dev Rev notes: a blog post from Dries about moving the Drupal 8 workflow initiative along; another content access module and a look at restricting access to content in Drupal 8; a post about conference experiences; notes about how the rendering engine for Firefox is being replaced on the fly; how display:flow-root is coming and is the first step towards getting rid of clearfix hacks; notes on designing for "show scroll bars"; a look at Etsy's evolving icon system; useful info about gradients and "transparent black"; one person's look at what front-end developers should do in 2017; and an article on evergreen websites and browser support, with a great quote.
This week's Web Dev Rev notes are more exhaustive than usual, thanks to the cancelled session and the December break, so we'll break from convention and give them a few paragraphs.
