Let's write some code that will allow us to see route parameters in action. We'll define a new route with a path like /journey/42/full but where
42 can be any node ID, and
full can be any view mode. When a user accesses the path we'll pass the dynamic parameters from the URL to the controller. The controller will then load the corresponding node and render it using the provided view mode, and return that to display on the page.
By the end of this tutorial you should be able to:
- Use dynamic slugs in a route to pass parameters to the route controller.
- See how Drupal will upcast a value like the node ID, 42, to a
- Explain what happens when you visit a URL that matches a route but the parameters don't pass validation.
By the end of this tutorial, you should be able to pass dynamic values from the URL to a route's controller.
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?
