In our last blog in this series we will be taking the various features and pieces we’ve worked on using the
Drupal 8 brings several major upgrades to the popular CMS, including the new core media module. The media library allows you to upload, manage, and reuse media (images, audio, video, and files) throughout your site, using a modern, user-friendly interface.
As a core module, it also completely integrates with:
Reports are an incredibly powerful tool used to develop future forecasts, marketing plans, guide budget planning and improve decision-making. In CiviCRM, one of the most important applications for reporting is in tracking and assessing the various kinds of contributions.
Today we are going to explore a common use case for how CiviCRM contacts can integrate with Drupal users using the CiviCRM Entity module.
We are excited to announce a new blog and webinar series on the CiviCRM Entity module, demonstrating practical applications of CiviCRM integration with Drupal.
In 1992, there was a little known new thing called the world wide web. By 1995, it was a "thing". Now, what exactly do those quotes do to the word "thing"? And what does this have to do with "entities"? Cue my favorite programming joke.
In the coming weeks, you can expect a series of changes going into the development pipeline to support the CiviCRM-Drupal 8 integration. Individually, these will seem unrelated and disjoint - they may not explicitly reference “D8”. I wanted to spend a moment to discuss the concept which ties them together: the clean install process, which will make Civi-D8 an equal member of the Civi CMS club and a good base for continued development and maintenance.
For starters, over 200 Drupal 8 sites already run CiviCRM! This post is based on my own research and conversations with those involved, and is intended to be informative and encouraging. As you may know, CiviCRM works with no less than four CMS at the moment, including three versions of Drupal, two 'officially'. Understandably with Drupal 7 end-of-support scheduled for Nov 2021, there has been recent discussion amongst those using or considering Drupal about which to use for your website.
The CiviCRM core team have looked at this and are now in a position to complete the work to make this an official CiviCRM release. This means they will make changes so
- CiviCRM can easily be installed with Drupal 8
- They will ensure CiviCRM works with Views in Drupal 8
CiviCooP and Systopia and Palasthotel have been working together on CiviProxy and CiviProxy. This blog is a round up of what we have achieved in the last couple of days. The first thing we have achieved is that we had fun and a very good work atmosphere. We made long days and made lots of progress.
What are CiviProxy and CiviMcRestFace?
A Make It Happen page (now closed) has been set up for getting CiviCRM ready to roll when Drupal 8 hits the stores.
This Make It Happen is for $10,000 to fix breakages as the final release candidates of Drupal 8 roll out (such as dealing with Symfony conflicts), and setting it up to work with BuildKit so we can provide a Demo site as part of the civicrm.org set of demo sites.
Drupal 8 is likely to be released around September. Fuzion have been driving the initiative to have CiviCRM ready to roll when Drupal 8 is released and there have already been some generous sponsors for our work to help get us this far. We have CiviCRM currently working on latest beta, and old friends like Views are working fine and you can give it a try out at http://civid8.fudev.co.nz/.
Can you help Fuzion take the Drupal 8 integration module that was developed as part of 2014 Google Summer of Code and get it working with the most recent version of Drupal 8 and publicly available for testing?
As part of the Google Summer of Code, I began work on getting CiviCRM and the upcoming Drupal 8 working together nicely. I made an update about midway through and it's time for another update. I had separated the project into a number of milestones. Phases 1, 2 and 3 dealt with varying aspects of the core CiviCRM module functionality.
I was accepted into the Google Summer of Code program this year to write the Drupal 8 integration modules for CiviCRM and work has progressed well so far. Drupal 8 is on track for a release this year and hopefully CiviCRM will be Drupal 8 ready about the time it goes final. In the course of this work I’ve taken up some strong opinions with how CiviCRM should orient itself in the future with regards to the CMSs it supports.
