Preparing for CKEditor 5

CKEditor 4 is reaching its end of support November 2023. The Backdrop community has been working towards transitioning to CKEditor 5. Come see the current state of the new module, how to test it, and what work remains to be done. We expect this module will be included in Backdrop 1.27.0.

Bee Inspired

Introduction

Bee is the command line tool for Backdrop that is developed specifically for Backdrop and is being actively developed. It runs on Linux based systems (including MacOS) but not Windows.  It has a number of functions in common with Drush and Brush but there are a few key gaps.

Decoupled Blocks with Drupal, Backdrop, and React

Over the last few months I decided to start building some of the decoupled blocks that I've been hearing about at Drupal events.  After getting the Drupal version working I wondered about how I would put the same block into a Backdrop site.  So I changed the module to be a Backdrop module instead of a Drupal module.

After that project I had a Backdrop site that had information I wanted to share inside a Drupal site.  I reversed the process, making a decoupled Backdrop block first and then changing the module to be a Drupal module.

Ubercart

Ubercart in Backdrop is looking amazing!

Several members of the Backdrop community have devoted their time and knowledge to making this happen - working on coding, integrations and documentation.  Why not spin up a site on Backdrop, and test out this user-friendly set of modules.

We are hoping to hear from

The Future of Paragraphs

Join this conversation about the future of Paragraphs for Backdrop. This session will include a short demo of the current state of functionality in the Paragraphs module, as well as a sneak-peak at some functionality that is in development but hasn't been shared publicly yet. Following that, a time of conversation will help provide questions, input, feedback and hopes about what is to come.

Module Showcase

Have you ported or created a module that you want to share? Perhaps you are excited about a module that you've recently discovered and think it deserves a bit of a celebration?

This event is open for anyone to share about a module.  I'll be sharing a few that I've done; hopefully others will too.

Collaborating on larger Contrib projects

What is the best way for us to collaborate on larger Contrib projects?
 

  • Is GitHub adequate
  • Use the GitHub Discussions feature
  • Use a Project management system
  • Use the same system as the Devs for Core
  • Something else

Leaving a large contributed module to one or two developers has many pitfalls, so I would like to facilitate a discussion on how best to collaborate when larger projects become popular... one module that springs to mind is Ubercart with 124 active installs.
 

Commerce solutions for Backdrop

In Drupal 7 there were many ways to setup e-commerce sites, and lots of sites were setup with each of those options. Ubercart has been ported and has a lot of other modules to extend it, but many others are not ported yet or are only available with minimal or partially ported features.

Come discuss the commerce options that are available for site owners and what we can do to make more options available.
