Adding new repositories without getting everything from those repositories

in

Wanted to be able to install selected things from Trisquel, such as IceCat, without changing everything over to Trisquel (yet).

To get access to Trisquel packages, add them to your sources list, add their keyring, and update:

https://trisquel.info/en/wiki/packages-repository

vi /etc/apt/sources.list

sudo apt-get install trisquel-keyring

Day-to-day usage of Gnucash for a Worker Cooperative

To view an account with all its subaccounts, go to the main Accounts tab, right click on the account you want to view, and select "Open SubAccounts".

For example, to see the checking account including each member's budget, go to Assets:Current Assets:DCU Checking and Edit > Open SubAccounts (or right/option click as mentioned).

Getting started using GnuCash for a Worker Cooperative

A lot of this will apply for any small business (and won't apply to huge worker cooperatives, although technically our three-member collective is a multinational).

How to programmatically rename a content type (change node type machine name)

Set old_type if you want to programmatically update a node type / machine name.

(This is not about changing the type of a node, but changing what type is called on the machine-info level.)

$type->old_type is what node_type_save() checks for when updating a node type, if it's not set it will create a new node type even if orig_type is set to an existing bundle. So really all you need to do right before saving a modified content type is set the old_type to the orig_type, such as:

Getting started with Behat testing for Drupal

Behat is a tool to support behavior-driven development in PHP. Behavior-driven development, in turn, is a set of practices and tools to bring leadership, technical, and other participants in a software project to the same understanding of needed outcomes. The key to this is to describe what people should be able to do with the application in language that all participants understand. The role of tools like Behat is to enable these human-readable sentences to be run as machine-readable tests.

Social Media Profile Links as a field type for Drupal 7 content

What we're looking for is a way to automatically display links on a Drupal site to people's profiles on known social media sites in the way they expect, e.g. @mlncn for Twitter, +ben.agaric for Google Plus, and whatever the heck for Facebook. Icons a plus.

Evaluated https://www.drupal.org/project/social_profile_field and was not impressed at all; both the inputter's user interface and the display are sorely lacking.

Configure Memcache on a Drupal site

This has to be done for each site. This is after installing Memcache on your server.

Memcache module

Then, in settings.php, add:

Vagrant box check update configuration error (resolved: upgrade Vagrant)

Vagrant box check update configuration error

The following settings don't exist: box_check_update

Commenting out this made it work fine:

# config.vm.box_check_update = true

But the better solution is to upgrade Vagrant.

The reason for the error is that Vagrant version 1.2.2, rather than 1.5 or 1.6, simply didn't know about that configuration setting, and complained, and quit.

Shared, co-working, and community spaces that may work for DropLabs Boston

DropLabs, in Los Angeles, offers coworking in a learning- and working-conducive space. A key feature is people supportive of their fellow coworkers' technical growth.

Error when Drupal 8 class file is misplaced

The error is pretty straightforward but the sheer confusion of where to place class files in your module (first off, yes, they do go in your module) might make this a pretty commonly googled error.

Drupal may give an error like this:

Error
The website has encountered an error. Please try again later.

Look in your logs for more detail:
