Drupal, KDE, and You

Filed under

Drupal

Work continues on the Dot update. We're in the middle boring stages now, plenty going on, but there isn't really anything interesting to talk about on that front. There will be soon, and I appreciate everyone's patience. But I wanted to take some time to talk about something relatively important. Why did I choose Drupal for the Dot?

There are a lot of other choices, and other platforms would have been easier to set up. For instance, WordPress has an excellent import feature, and at this point it's clear that it would have been easier to use WordPress for importing stories than Drupal. Also, WordPress is really all that the Dot would need right now. Multiple authors can make posts, they can be categorized, it has a nice WYSIWYG editor, etc.

But yet, I chose Drupal. I am experienced with Drupal, but even that wasn't the real reason that I chose it.

Red Hat CEO Jim Whitehurst on the impact of cloud and mobile

So I asked Whitehurst if the cloud had already won the war for IT infrastructure, but he gave me a more nuanced response than I expected: “I think there’s a new architecture combining computing and storage in an easily managed centralized data center,” he said. “Scaling out that architecture… That’s clearly winning.” “What’s less clear,” he continued, “is whether the traditional enterprise-owned-and-managed data center on premise will serve that, or will it be the public cloud or something in between? That’s still far from resolved.” Read more

LIBINPUT INTEGRATION IN KWIN/WAYLAND

Today I pushed my outstanding branch to get libinput support into kwin_wayland. Libinput is a very important part for the work to get a full Wayland session in Plasma which means we reached a very important milestone. As the name suggests it allows us to process input events directly. KWin needs to forward the input events to the currently active application(s) and also interpret them before any other application gets them. E.g. if there is a global shortcut KWin should intercept it and not send it to an application. Read more
