5 ways to fall in love with your workplace this Valentine!


For those you are already planning for this special day of the year, I am sure it’s the most exciting feeling! Sharing, caring and showing love for that special person in your live is something we should do every day and not just on a special day!

What if that love is not a person at all? What if that special thing is actually a place where you spend time most of the day every day? What if that place is where your heart belongs?

For most of us it’s our work place! For some it’s the most special corner where we turn our dreams into reality. The special corner where we sit down and dream every day, make plans how to achieve those dreams, execute on those plans and enjoy the results.

A piece of the heart also belongs to that corner. So why not celebrate it this Valentine with that special place too! Read more »

Setup Eclipse to work with your remote server and Drupal plugin

in Drupal, Drupal Planet, Drupal Planet, eclipse, RSE

Very often we work on projects that are hosted on a remote server. There are multiple ways to work on the remote files:

1. ssh into the remote machine and use an editor like vi or emacs to edit the files

2. Develop on your local machine and FTP every change

The second choice is preferable if you want to use an IDE or if the conenction to the server is slow.

However, there is a 3rd approach, that combines the above two. If you are using Eclipse or NetBeans as your editor, then you can connect your editor to the remote server over FTP. I will only cover Eclipse since that is what I use. Read more »

Modify views filter query with hook_hook_views_query_alter

in Drupal, Drupal Planet, Drupal Planet, exposed filter, exposed filter, search, search, views, views

If you are familiar with Drupal Views, you might have come across a very nifty feature called exposed filters. If you expose one of the fields as a filter then views provides a widget and a search option, where the exposed field can be searched. There is good video to learn about filter here.

However, we needed to extend the functionality so all the fields of the content type are exposed as  ‘searchable’ fields, not just the exposed fields. If we expose every fields explicitly, then the views filter will create a textbox for each field, which is not pretty. So in our example, we wanted to search ‘Person’ content type. And if the user entered either the first name, last name, address, of any of the values for the fields in the Person content type, a result would be returned. Read more »
