Drupal 8 multilingual tidbits 17: content translation basics

Gábor Hojtsy on D8MI -

I just updated all prior 16 posts in this series with up to date screenshots and text over the weekend and here is the new post!

In the introduction to content and configuration translation piece we discussed what is considered content in Drupal 8. This is a somewhat misleading term because custom blocks, custom menu items and even user entities (user profiles) are considered content in terms of their implementation.

Content is always stored as entities. The main difference between configuration and content entities is configuration is usually created on the backend (think views, vocabularies, etc.) while content is usually created on the frontend (think free tagging taxonomy terms, comments, blog posts). This is not a black and white differentiation but it helps think of the categories. The other key differentiator is content entities usually get to have configurable fields. You can add new fields to user profiles, taxonomy terms or comments. Again there are exceptions, for example custom menu items cannot get configurable fields in core. Finally, there are even content entities that will not be stored, in Drupal 8 contact form submissions are content entities that live only until they are sent via email. For this tidbit we are concerned for content entities that are stored and multilingual.

2014 in review from a multilingual Drupal perspective

Gábor Hojtsy on D8MI -

Whew! 2014 was a fantastic year for the Drupal multilingual team. We had some great events with huge sprints, including but not limited to: Global Sprint Weekend, the amazing Drupal Dev Days Europe, NYC Camp, DrupalCon Austin, DrupalCon Amsterdam and BADCamp.

A fun fact about people on the multilingual team is that even though we usually turn out in big numbers at sprints, there are numerous great mentors among us, so we don't work on code that much at mentored sprints. We do a great job helping people get started and move into more serious core work though. Our most famous mentee this past year is 2014th Drupal 8 core contributor Holly Ross, Executive Director of the Drupal Association who contributed her first and second core patches fixing multilingual issues.

The Drupal 8 configuration schema cheat sheet

Gábor Hojtsy on D8MI -

After over a month of concentrated work, Drupal 8 was ready today to finally flip the switch and enforce strict configuration schema adherence in all TestBase derived tests in core. See the announcement in the core group.

If you are a Drupal 8 contrib developer and provided some configuration schema earlier (or you integrate with an existing core system like blocks, views, fields, etc.) then your tests may now fail with configuration schema errors. Unless of course all your configuration schema is correct: #highfive for you then.

Otherwise I thought you'll have questions. There is of course the existing configuration schema documentation that I helped wrote. However if you are a visual person and want to get an understanding of the basics fast, I thought a cheat sheet would be a great tool. So sat down today and produced this one in the hopes it will help you all! Enjoy!
