Text formatting and Drupal input filter development: Understanding Drupal's most boring subsystem — Video Available
Hi! I'm Garrett Albright, and for over five years, I've been maintaining the Pathologic contributed module, which provides an input filter for correcting URLs in content. During those years, I've come to acquire a good level of familiarity with Drupal's text formatting system, and now I'd like to share that familiarity with you.
Your Drupal site probably uses the complex, unglamorous text formatting system several times a day at the very least. Wouldn't you like to learn more about how it works and how you can make it work for you?
The proposed session will cover:
- How and when the text format system works
- How input filters "stack" and interact with each other
- How and when the text format caches its results, and how not to get tripped up by it
- How to develop a simple input filter for Drupal 7
- …and make it more complex by providing user-changeable settings in a settings form
- …and then port it to Drupal 8!
