Composer has become a must for relatively ambitious Drupal 8 projects. Even if it is still possible to initialize a Drupal 8 project with drush or simply by downloading a zip archive, these two methods can become limiting over time. Or at least not to facilitate the installation of new modules with dependencies on third-party libraries.
Another of the reasons I have encountered, why some Drupal... - News from Planet Drupal

The "Imagepin" module allows you to create pins inside an image and display descriptive text when you hover over those pins.

The European Commission worked with the Drupal Security Team to set aside 89,000€ (or roughly $100,000 USD) for a Drupal bug bounty.
Every year, I sit down to write my annual Acquia retrospective. It's a rewarding exercise, because it allows me to reflect on how much progress Acquia has made in the past 12 months.
Overall, Acquia had an excellent 2018. I believe we are a much stronger company than we were a year ago; not only because of our financial results, but because of our commitment to strengthen our product and engineering teams.
If you'd like to read my previous retrospectives, they can be found here:... - News from Planet Drupal
When Drupal 8 came out, it introduced the Drupal community to the concept of separating the theming layer from the logic layer through the Twig templating language. This had many advantages. For one, instead of needing to know PHP, a themer could just know Twig – an extremely stripped-down templating engine that has a few syntax elements, minimal built-in operators, and only about 50 provided functions.... - News from Planet Drupal

CKEditor is well-known software with a big community behind it and it already has a ton of useful plugins ready to be used. It is the WYSIWYG text editor which ships with Drupal 8 core.
Unfortunately, the many plugins provided by the CKEditor community can't be used directly in the CKEditor that comes with Drupal 8. It is necessary to let Drupal know that we are going to add a new button to... - News from Planet Drupal

While I was working on a patch I had to write the docblock of a function which received a hexadecimal number and I wasn't sure what I was supposed to put in the @type param.
Drupal 8 has a great AJAX Form API which includes some tools to create modal dialogs using the jQuery modal library. The Examples module even demonstrates how to create a custom form and display it in a modal window. But what if what you want to do is display an already created form in a modal? How do we do that? Let's see how to do it with... - News from Planet Drupal
When you think of training, perhaps you remember an event that you were sent to where you had to learn something boring for your job. The word training does not usually make people smile and jump for joy, that is unless you are talking about Drupal training. These gatherings spread the Drupal knowledge and increase diversity in the community of Drupal developers.

Once a text field has data stored, it is not very easy or obvious how to change its maximum length. In the UI there is a message warning you that the field cannot be changed, because there is existing data. Sometimes it is necessary to change these values. It seems that there are a few ways and some resources to do this in Drupal 7, but I could not find a way to do this in Drupal 8. I decided to create a small function... - News from Planet Drupal

The program for DrupalCon is evolving constantly. Among the changes for Nashville 2018 new tracks have been added and some have been merged. That is the case for the Symfony and PHP tracks.
