Encourage experimentation with Docksal

How often is one's choice of drupal module simply the first one that worked?

Or how often might the developers with a single copy of the current WIP, and if something breaks, everything grinds to a halt for them?

Adventures in styleguide driven development

I find myself getting more and more into the subject of styleguides. I use design and development to solve problems. For me, this means striving to build intuitive interactions for a digital space.

If it's about solving problems, we need to explore solutions

To achieve this, I start wondering about the bigger picture. I find myself trying to make a mental model that represents all the facets. First by defining the small parts, and then understanding how they can link together, and how they can affect each other.

Contenta CMS: Drupal as a single Page App (Notes for Drupal Show N' Tell)

See the radio widget up there on the right hand side? That would not make for a great user experince if the radio widget reset every time a new page was loaded. So over the past few weeks I've been looking at the various javascript options that would allow me turn our drupal site into a SPA or single page app.

P5 and PhaserJs Drupal Content Types

We've made two more content types, one for phaser scenes and one for p5 sketches. (we generically call sketches,  states, psd files and javascript scenes as plates after the old printing press techniques).

These allow us to experiment with these javascipt libraries in isolated blogs in a drupal environment before we attempt tobuild an rpg game around the cms.
