Enabling Xdebug for Acquia Dev Desktop

There are three essential tools I use in order to develop Drupal sites: Acquia Dev Desktop, NetBeans IDE, and Xdebug. Xdebug is a great tool to step through your code in order to troubleshoot a bug, however, it comes disabled by default on Acquia Dev Desktop. The following are instructions to enable Xdebug on Acquia Dev Desktop (ADD).

Drupal DSpace Module Launched

Today I launched my new Drupal DSpace project. There are two modules included in this project, the DSpace module and the DSpace Biblio module.

DSpace Module:
The purpose of the DSpace module is to parse a DSpace REST XML feed using the Feeds module and map the feed items into nodes.

DSpace Biblio Module:
The DSpace Biblio module maps DSpace metadata fields with Biblio fields.

Accidentally Adding a Git Submodule

Git LogoRecently I’ve been working on a Drupal project at work and a fellow co-worker wanted to piggy-back resources on a similar project. He sent me over the code for a custom module I was going to use on the project.

Only after committing and pushing the folder from my local git repo to the origin server did I notice the remnants of my co-workers .git folder. This cause git to treat the subfolder as a git submodule and ignore the contents of the subfolder as I push my project to the origin server.

Here is what you need to do in order to remove the submodule and add as a subfolder:

git rm --cached subfolder
git add subfolder
git commit -m "Enter message here"
git push

Now the origin should be able to see the contents of the subfolder.
