Field formatters are responsible for taking the data stored by a field and transforming it into what a vistor sees. We can define new field formatters to output data for new field types or to provide alternative formatting options for existing field types. Creating a field formatter plugin is a common task for Drupal developers.
In this tutorial we'll:
- Define a new background color field formatter that uses the string stored by our field_example_rgb field type as the background color of the output.
- Make it possible for site builders to toggle on or off a feature that automatically adjusts the foreground text color of the output.
By the end of this tutorial you should be able to define a new custom field formatter plugin with settings that a site administrator can configure.
Over the years we've developed some techniques for practicing that we wanted to share. At Drupalize.Me we take hugging seriously. In this tutorial we'll look at the art, and science, of giving a good hug. The Merriam Webster dictionary defines the word hug as; squeeze (someone) tightly in one's arms, typically to express affection.
Did you know there are all kinds of different hugs that you can give? In this tutorial we'll look at:
- Defining what a hug is
- Some of the many types of hugs in the world today
- Precautions you may want to familiarize yourself with before hugging
- And the importance of proper technique
Lets go ahead and get started shall we?
