D7 to D8 tutorial: pathinfo module

This is a live step-by-step tutorial of my process of porting pathinfo module form Drupal 7.x to Drupal 8.x as part of the global sprint weekend, March 9th-10th, 2013.

The commit of Drupal 8 I was working against is:

* 957b556 - (HEAD, origin/HEAD, origin/8.x, 8.x) Issue #1932596 by ACF: Change site_name() into config in userpasswordreset.test and formtest. (4 hours ago)


I installed a copy of Drupal 8 locally to test against. With that done:

  • Start a new branch of my module: $ git checkout -b 8.x-1.x
  • On my first push, create a new upstream branch git push --set-upstream origin 8.x-1.x
  • Create a development release

Steps to upgrade

Problem Reason Solution Commit
Can't enable module. .info files are now .info.yml files Rename file and change to YAML format. 1241617 and 4c2a072

Working with breakpoints in Drupal 8

There is no user interface for editing breakpoints in Drupal 8. For future community efforts to build a UI see the Breakpoint UI module.

Breakpoints are where a responsive design adjusts in order to display correctly on different devices. The Breakpoints module standardizes the use of breakpoints, and enables modules and themes to expose or use each others' breakpoints. The Breakpoint module keeps track of the height, width, and resolution breakpoints.
