Coil

Web monetization service is a browser API which allow creation of (micro) payments between the reader (user agent) and the content provider (website).

This is one way of getting paid for valuable content.

Today Coil is providing web monetization service using Interledger protocol (ILP).

We have built a simple module to integrate coil monetization with Drupal website:

Simple settings to add payment pointer is demonstrated in this video:

 

 

 

Hook form with build validate and submit

Context

EK application has a module that store personal documents for user. When user account is deleted, those documents may be transferred to another account.

To achieve that, we need to alter the user account cancel form when building the form, validating and submitting it.

Let's review the 3 steps.

 

BUILD

The form before altering it looks like this

cancel user account before hook

We need to add a field to select another user account to which the document of the canceled account will be moved to.

To achieve that we Implements hook_form_alter() in MyModule.module:

Usage of ClamAV in Drupal 8

This is an example of anti-virus implementation with an Ubuntu server.

Our back office management solution allows users to upload files in various sections of the application for storage or file sharing. For this reason, checking of files for virus is an important advantage.

We use the ClamAV module integration from Drupal 8.

 

1) Install ClamAV on Ubuntu

Installation on Ubuntu server is straight forward.  However, it is better to install with clamav-daemon clamav-freshclam options for later settings

Custom Block in Drupal 8

In this article, we will see how we built custom blocks in EK management tools suite with a sample basic block in a module called 'mymodule' used for demo. It can be used to display multiple content, static or dynamic as in the example above.

Create the block script

First we will create a script that will display some content within a block. the script file will be called MyBlock.php and is placed in /mymodule/src/Plugin/Block/.


/**
 * @file
 * Contains \Drupal\mymodule\Plugin\Block\MyBlock.
 */
namespace Drupal\mymodule\Plugin\Block;
use Drupal\Core\Block\BlockBase;
use Drupal\Core\Session\AccountInterface;
use Drupal\Core\Access\AccessResult;

/**
 * Provides a 'Custom module widget' .
 *
 * @Block(
 *   id = "my_block",
 *   admin_label = @Translation("My custom block"),
 *   category = @Translation("mymodule Widgets")
 * )
 */

Install and use Swift Mailer in Drupal 8 (part 2 : implementation)

In previous article we explained how we installed the Swift Mailer module and its dependencies.

In this second part, let's see how we configure and implement it to use in our modules to send formated HTML mail with attachment.

First you will need to have Mail system module installed already. There is no particular issue or difficulty here.

 

1) Configure Swift Mailer

 

In Swift Mailer configuration (/admin/config/swiftmailer/transport) , we select the following options:
