Before you can create a new plugin of any type you'll need to figure out where the plugin implementation and its metadata should live in the code base so that the plugin manager can find plugins and examine what functionality instances of the plugin type are expected to provide.
This tutorial contains 2 parts:
- A recipe and example of how to implement a plugin if you already know the plugin type.
- How to figure out a specific plugin type's implementation details.
In this tutorial we'll:
- Provide a recipe for implementing plugins of any type.
- Demonstrate how to figure out where the code and metadata should live for PHP-based plugins.
- Explain how to figure out where YAML plugin definitions should go, and what they should contain.
By the end of this tutorial you should have a recipe for getting started with implementing annotation-based plugins, and YAML-based plugins, and a better understanding of how to figure out the details required to implement any given plugin type.
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?
