Media module should use Views for Administration

Media module should at least come with proper Views integration and a number of default views for administration, probably making use of Views Bulk Operations.

This can be pure progressive enhancement, the code weight is in separate files and the rare person who does not have Views can use the much weaker administration pages Media currently has.

Adding non-menu things to primary links menu items with Drupal 7's page alter hook

The request was to stick search in a menu. I said "I bet that's easy with hook_page_alter()!"

Not quite.

The primary links menu is output directly by the theme, and so is one of the very very few things that occurs after hook_page_alter().

You can tell the theme to stop outputting it directly, and put it in a block that is displayed in a region, or you can add it to the page rendering array in code with hook_page_build().

Installing Compass and Sass with Susy on Ubuntu

As long as gem and rvm are already set up (see RubyGems and RVM on Ubuntu), all you need to do is:

gem install compass
gem install compass-susy-plugin
gem install stitch

Most recently on Ubuntu: This worked with sudo.


Main Gotcha:
compass-susy-plugin does not show on gem list

Administrator Experience for Drupal: Skip Confirmation for Deletion of Less Important Items

CS would like a module that lets you set in which places you want to be required to confirm delete and which places should just let you delete.

  • Menu items-- don't make me confirm
  • Content-- make sure

I don't think the confirm form is necessary to present cross-site scripting-- that's in the token with the form (or delete link— that might be an easy way to do this, change one or the other to links so you can visually see if you're getting a confirmation or not, and maybe think twice faster).

This proposed session didn't make it on the schedule, but we'll be perfecting this concept which we can't help but write about and take notes about and wax political about.

Talmud: Git version-controlled, free, open, collaboratively-written books the way G-d intended

Having experienced writing an epic tech book - 36 authors and 36 chapters and no, it did not break down nice and neat like that - we are convinced there is a better way than the traditional publishing model. Drawing on the tradition of open source free software about which we wrote, we propose donation-funded, completely free and open texts of superior quality and timeliness, marked by clean mark-up and powered by technologies of collaboration.
