As a Drupal administrator, Drush aliases is a tool I cannot live without. It provides a way for me to connect to any Drupal site on any environment and run drush commands. The only requirement is that I have SSH access to those servers.
Case Sensitivity on Git for Macs
Today I ran into an issue with git and case sensitivity on Macs. Although Macs preserve case, their filesystems is case insensitive.
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.
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.

Recently 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.
