A requirement that comes up from time to time is being able to use content stored in Drupal and produce rich HTML emails. In a lot of cases the design of these emails matches the design of the existing, already implemented front-end website.
In a recent project, we explored ways of creating HTML email’s which wouldn’t require us to start from scratch and would also evolve as the website’s look and feel did. Our design goals were thus:
One of the aspects of the new object oriented architecture in Drupal 8 is the introduction of services. Services can be provided by any module and provide a mechanism for exposing reusable functionality by way of interfaces and classes. All services are instantiated via the container which is responsible for injecting a service’s dependencies.
Since services implement interfaces and are always instantiated via the container, we have the opportunity to alter what the container returns, ultimately allowing us to swap any existing service with a new one.

For many agencies, and large organisations that have tens or hundreds of Drupal sites, it can be difficult to keep tabs on which sites have what modules installed and whether they are up to date or not. Manually crawling through each site can be time consuming and error prone.
In this post, I describe a solution that allows you to keep a dashboard of site status information that you can query to find out precisely what is going on on each of your sites.
In this blog post we will take you though all the components required to provision a high availability Drupal 8 stack on Microsoft Azure. This is an extract from the demonstration given at Microsoft Ignite on the Gold Coast in November 2015.
As part of our sponsorship of the GovInnovate conference, CeBIT conducted an interview with Owen Lansbury about Drupal's role on the Service NSW platform, including how the use of Agile development enabled it to go live in record time and be iteratively improved since launch.
Since 2012, PreviousNext has been developing and maintaining the aGov distribution for Drupal 7. aGov provides a means for Australian Government organisations to meet their accessibility and security obligations with free and open-source software hosted on the platform of their choice.
