Material Design Components

Drupal Themes News - Thu, 07/20/2017 - 23:47
Goals & Motivation:

A drupal administration theme inspired by the newest Material Design project created by Google.

This theme uses no 3rd party libraries or extensions. It has been built to conform to googles markup without any alterations to the DOM.

Currently this theme is a POC, and is not recommended for production sites.

  • Personalization through custom color palettes utilizing the color module. (Match your backend theme with your frontend for a cohesive administration experience).
  • Card based menu layouts.
  • MDC form elements.
  • More features to come.
What about all the other Material admin Themes?

Before we started this project we did quite a bit of research and tried to collaborate with many other authors of various other themes in the attempt to contribute and better existing themes with the addition of MDC.

The problem we faced was either a lack of support, or a difference in technologies. We wanted to ensure the least amount of customization to the existing base theme's structure (we use "Seven" as our base).

We also took note of googles initiate to move forward with MDC and drop future support of MDL (Material Design Lite).

MDL is currently in limited support mode, with no further development taking place by the core team. We are happy to accept and review pull requests for new functionality, however, as long as there are no breaking changes.

Take the Survey on the Community Governance Summit

Drupal.org News - Tue, 07/18/2017 - 14:28

I recently shared the community needs and potential strategies for evolving community governance, which resulted from the Community Discussions we held in person and online throughout April and May. You can find the webinar recording and written transcript, as well as the meeting minutes from all Community Discussions, at https://www.drupal.org/community/discussions.

Many community members who participated in these discussions agreed that the next step to take in this process is to hold a Community Governance Summit. However, we are not yet clear on where and when this event should take place, who should participate, and several other important details. I worked with community members to develop this survey so we can answer those questions.

Please take 5 minutes to take this community survey and tell us your thoughts about the Community Governance Summit. This survey will remain open until 11:59pm EDT on July 28, 2017. We will analyze the findings and report back on what we learned in a follow-up blog post by Friday, August 4.

Thank you for your time and participation.

Drupal Association Board Meeting Summary - 28 June, 2017

Drupal.org News - Sat, 07/15/2017 - 20:09

On 28 June, 2017, the Drupal Association Board held the second of four annual public meetings. It was a full meeting where staff provided operational updates and gained some strategic direction from board members on how to proceed in various areas. Some highlights included:

  • Summary of DrupalCon Baltimore’s performance and impact.

  • Progress on securing future DrupalCon locations.

  • Discussion on how to unblock community outreach efforts by making appropriate changes to the Drupal.org privacy policy

  • An update on the Drupal.org infrastructure RFP that was recently awarded to Tag1.

Whitney Hess also attended the board meeting to give an update on the Community Discussion work and invited the community to attend her webinar that shared her findings and next steps. You can learn more and watch the recorded webinar here.

Also, Jamie Nau, our “virtual CFO” from Summit CPA attended the meeting to review April 2017 financial statements, which showed that DrupalCon Baltimore exceeded expectations, positioning the Drupal Association for a healthier year, financially. This is encouraging news as we work through our financial turnaround, which started a year ago.

In an effort to be more transparent about board activities, the board chose to use this public forum to vote to approve the January through April 2017 financial statements. April 2017 financial statements showed that April was a successful month primarily due to DrupalCon Baltimore's strong financial performance. 

You can find the meeting minutes and board materials here

We were pleased to have community members attend and invite you to attend our next board meeting on 27 September, 2017 at noon CEST. It is located in the DrupalCon Vienna convention center and can also be attended via zoom.

WeebPal Backend Theme

Drupal Themes News - Mon, 07/10/2017 - 00:29

Any Drupal developers must get used to the default Drupal admin dashboard theme. We totally love it with its simple design and sensible layout arrangement.

But we thought it could be better.

That's why we work on WeebPal Backend. It's based on our 7 years working with Drupal development and delivering nearly 100 Drupal themes. Here's what this admin theme offers:

- Keeping the default structure of Drupal, so no efforts to relearn the Drupal dashboard behaviors.
- Polished modern design style.
- Minimal Clean Design.
- UX aimed and simple to use.

Not only does the front-end of your website look good but the back-end appearance needs to be great. Because most of the works of a Drupal developer are done in the behind back of the websites.

Drupal8 Theme for ZURB Foundation 6

A Drupal 8 theme to support ZURB Foundation 6! Exciting!
ZURB Foundation 6 is a responsive, mobile-first CSS and JavaScript framework. It has features that compare very well with Bootstrap 3, including a responsive grid system.

See this theme in action!

Head on over to the developer-hosted:

to see this theme installed on a Drupal site.

Further information

This theme is currently restricted to Foundation 6.3.x. Foundation 6.4 was released last week, and this theme will support Foundation 6.4 as soon as possible!

This theme is in pre release-candidate status. It consists completely of CSS, JS and Twig HTML templates, so the harm it can do is limited.

The latest release is 8.x-1.0-alpha6. Download it below.

Latest changes
  • Inclusion of gulp build which can build the app.css from foundation sources.
  • Fix to regions eliminating required post-configuration step.
Configuration Steps

There are optional configuration steps. The menus should be moved to other regions - current support for having the "Primary menu" and "Secondary menu" regions in the "top bar" may be temporary.

To do this, go to the admin interface, under structure, under blocks.

  1. Move the "main navigation" block from under "Primary menu" to "Top bar left."
  2. Move the "User account menu" from under "Secondary menu" to "Top bar right."

I have had problems with the administration toolbar disrupting the theme layout, so have a separate, non-admin window where you can observe the theme's results.

Looking for alpha testers!

Attention Drupal developers, users, webmasters, and enthusiasts:

I am looking for alpha testers for my Drupal 8 theme for the ZURB Foundation 6 responsive design framework. For more info on Foundation 6 the, see ZURB Foundation website.

Please comment on issue #2891980 if you would like to sign up to be an alpha tester. There is no time commitment, just a desire to help out with finding bugs and user experience issues with the theme. You will receive credit! Get involved with the open source community with this low-barrier project.

Community Discussions Findings and Webinar

Drupal.org News - Wed, 06/28/2017 - 16:46

Over the last few years, many of us have seen the need to evolve community governance. Up until now, we had to focus on other priorities, but now is the time to address our needs for community governance especially in light of recent community events.

Our project has matured greatly and participation has expanded from developers and site builders to also include more content editors, designers, and marketing managers who work not only as freelancers or at Drupal shops, but also for large digital agencies or system integrators. We want all community members to be included in these community discussions so the redefined community governance serves everyone. This is an exciting time to create an even healthier future for our ever-growing community.

The Drupal Association is committed to staying in a support role as the community determines how to best evolve community governance to support everyone’s needs. We started helping by hosting Community Discussions that were mediated by Whitney Hess. There were 7 sessions at DrupalCon Baltimore and 7 virtual sessions between April and May. You can find the meeting minutes here.

The Community Discussions surfaced several common needs and identified several strategies for addressing those needs.

The most commonly shared needs of the community are (in order of frequency):

  • Awareness

  • Participation

  • Transparency

  • Clarity

  • Contribution

  • Healing

  • Trust

  • Understanding

  • Communication

  • Connection

  • Empowerment

  • Process

  • Progress

Strategies to address those needs ranged from clarifying the responsibilities and boundaries of the leadership roles throughout the Drupal project, determining how and where to communicate community decisions, improving processes for community management, and providing easier access to documentation about leadership roles and clearly communicating what is expected of Drupal community members.

In terms of next steps, the participants were in agreement that we need to come together in a Governance Summit to start architecting improvements to today’s governance structure. However, the community did not define the best way to hold this meeting. It is still unclear when and where it should be, and who should participate and facilitate. We will send out a community survey next to get input from you to answer these questions.

Attend The Webinar

We invite to you attend a webinar on July 6 at 11 am ET / 1600 BST / 8:30 pm IST hosted by Whitney Hess. Whitney will review the findings from our Community Discussions in more detail. We will record the video and share it with you afterwards, along with a written transcript.

Thank you for your patience and participation as we tackle these big questions and move forward together as a stronger community.

Drupal Core - Multiple Vulnerabilities - SA-CORE-2017-003

Drupal.org News - Wed, 06/21/2017 - 18:44

Drupal 8.3.4 and Drupal 7.56 are maintenance releases which contain fixes for security vulnerabilities.

Download Drupal 8.3.4 Download Drupal 7.56

Updating your existing Drupal 8 and 7 sites is strongly recommended (see instructions for Drupal 8 and for Drupal 7). This release fixes security issues only; there are no new features nor non-security-related bug fixes in this release. See the 8.3.4 release notes and the 7.56 release notes for details on important changes and known issues affecting this release. Read on for details of the security vulnerabilities that were fixed in this release.

  • Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-CORE-2017-003
  • Project: Drupal core
  • Version: 7.x, 8.x
  • Date: 2017-June-21
  • Multiple vulnerabilities
Description PECL YAML parser unsafe object handling - Critical - Drupal 8 - CVE-2017-6920

PECL YAML parser does not handle PHP objects safely during certain operations within Drupal core. This could lead to remote code execution.

File REST resource does not properly validate - Less Critical - Drupal 8 - CVE-2017-6921

The file REST resource does not properly validate some fields when manipulating files. A site is only affected by this if the site has the RESTful Web Services (rest) module enabled, the file REST resource is enabled and allows PATCH requests, and an attacker can get or register a user account on the site with permissions to upload files and to modify the file resource.

Files uploaded by anonymous users into a private file system can be accessed by other anonymous users - Moderately Critical - Drupal 7 and Drupal 8 - CVE-2017-6922

Private files that have been uploaded by an anonymous user but not permanently attached to content on the site should only be visible to the anonymous user that uploaded them, rather than all anonymous users. Drupal core did not previously provide this protection, allowing an access bypass vulnerability to occur. This issue is mitigated by the fact that in order to be affected, the site must allow anonymous users to upload files into a private file system.

The security team has also received reports that this vulnerability is being exploited for spam purposes, similar to the scenario discussed in PSA-2016-003 for the public file system.

Versions affected
  • Drupal core 7.x versions prior to 7.56
  • Drupal core 8.x versions prior to 8.3.4

Install the latest version:

Also see the Drupal core project page.
