In this post we will do just that, setup a local development environment with [Docker and Vagrant]({% post_url 2015-07-19-docker-with-vagrant %}).Wed, 23 Sep 2015 02:30:00 +0000 8 - First ExperiencesI recently had time to install and take a look at Drupal 8. I am going to share my first take on Drupal 8 and some of the hang-ups that I came across. I read a few other blog posts that mentioned not to rely too heavily on one source for D8 documentation with the rapid changing pace of D8 the information has become outdated rather quickly.Fri, 14 Aug 2015 23:00:00 +0000 with Vagrant - Part 2In this post, we will venture into setting up docker locally, in the same repeatable way, from developer to developer. By the end of this post, we'll have Drupal running in a container, using Docker.

We wanted to make it easy for our Drupal client to upload images into Drupal and still be able to replace images that need different dimensions at different viewport sizes. We decided to use Picture module a Drupal 8 backport to handle our Picture Mappings. Here we will show you how to get that setup in four easy steps.Thu, 02 Jul 2015 00:00:00 +0000 on L.A.

I'll pick up where we left off and discuss why and how we used Symfony to build our web service instead of implementing it in Drupal.Thu, 30 Apr 2015 00:00:00 +0000 & Conquer: Drupal 7, Symfony, Elasticsearch, and AngularJS - Part 1It isn't just about Drupal here at ActiveLAMP -- when the right project comes along that diverges from the usual demands of content management, we get to use other cool technologies to satisfy more exotic requirements. Last year we had a project that presented us with the opportunity to broaden our arsenal beyond the Drupal toolbox. Basically, we had to build a website which handles a growing amount of vetted content coming in from the site's community and 2 external sources, and the whole catalog is available through the use of a rich search tool and also through a RESTful web service which other of our client's partners can use to search for content to display on their respective websites.Wed, 21 Jan 2015 00:00:00 +0000
