Renderers are the services that take a render array and convert it to HTML (or JSON, or any other format). As a module developer, understanding how they work will help you gain a better understanding of what happens behind the scenes when Drupal links an incoming request to your custom controller and then handles the data you return.
In this tutorial we'll:
- Define renderers
- List the renderers available in Drupal core
- Demonstrate how you can create a link that forces the use of a different renderer
By the end of this tutorial, you should understand the role that renderers play in the Drupal render pipeline and when you might want to use one other than the default.
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?
