WCMS Web Dev Rev wrap-up for January 20, 2017

WCMS Web Dev Rev

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).

WCMS Web Dev Rev

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.
