The Missing Journaling Workflow

Of the difficulty to drop Day One

When I first heard of my Day One becoming a subscription service I – once again – started to reconsider how I want to keep my journal.

Set Front Page from settings[.local].php in Drupal 8

When working on Drupal projects I usually need to set a static front page by referencing a Node’s ID. When working with different environments chances are high that Node ID varies from environment to environment.

Drupal: Add Body Class when Tabs are displayed

I had the urge to style various elements differently in case tabs (the ones generated by menu_local_tasks) are present on the page. Out of the box $tabs array isn’t available in html.tpl.php so I had to implement ‘ hook_preprocess_html’ and add my desired class to my array of body classes. Yay!

function THEMENAME_preprocess_html(&$vars, $hook) {
  // Make tabs available on html tpl
  $vars['tabs'] = menu_local_tabs();
  // if we have primary tabs, add an accoring body class
  if (!empty($vars['tabs']['#primary'])) {
    $vars['classes_array'][] = 'has-tabs';
