Throughout Drupal's history, contributors have rallied around Drupal.org as the single source of truth for both the code running Drupal and the infrastructure powering Drupal's issue queues, source control, and automated testing. As the Drupal Association continues on its journey to integrate GitLab features with Drupal.org, we're beginning to see the first glimpses of how Drupal contribution and issue management will evolve thanks to cutting-edge functionality like merge requests and issue forks in GitLab.

Slow or intermittent connections are an all-too-common case that many users face when attempting to work with applications. Offline-enabled applications are a particularly challenging use case because they require synchronization and a local understanding of data.

Last month at DrupalCon Global, Dries Buytaert, the founder of Drupal, announced that a major focus of Drupal 9 will be improving the user interface and user experience of the platform - for all personas.

Part 1 | Part 2 Emerging approaches to front-end development portend a very different world from the one we live in today with regard to handling and juggling components.

For instance, React now contains both declarative rendering of components through JSX and efficient document object model (DOM) diffing...

Tag1 is a proud Platinum sponsor of DrupalCon Global. Find the slides for our contributed talks attached. I was just talking to my team about how much I liked how the DA put on this DrupalCon Global virtual conference. Despite the short lead time DA had to prepare, it worked! Hopin had very few hiccups; I actually got to focus (better, oddly) on some of the talks/presentations; and I had wonderful wide-ranging (unscripted), but deep...

Part 1 | Part 2 Front-end development workflows have seen considerable innovation in recent years, with technologies like React disseminating revolutionary concepts like declarative components in JSX and more efficient document object model (DOM) diffing through Virtual DOMs. Nonetheless, while this front-end development revolution has led to significant change in the developer experiences we see in the JavaScript landscape and to even more momentum in favor of decoupled Drupal architectures in the Drupal...

Many front-end technologies, especially React, now consider the notion of declarative components to be table stakes. Why haven't they arrived in environments like the Drupal CMS's own front end? Many native CMS presentation layers tend to obsolesce quickly and present a scattered or suboptimal developer experience, particularly against the backdrop of today's rapidly evolving front-end development workflows. But according to Fabian Franz, there is a solution that allows for that pleasant front-end developer experience within...
