Create and use a custom permission in your module
You can define your own permissions for the Drupal permissions page (/admin/people/permissions in modern Drupal, Drupal 8, 9, 10, and beyond) and then add conditional options to your code to do different things based on the role of the user and the permissions configured by a site administrator. See how!
Why we resist Zoom and choose BigBlueButton for video chat
We can look at the recent popularity of some widely used platforms like Zoom and ask ourselves some questions as to why we still use them when we know a lot of terrible things about them. Agaric prefers to use a free/libre video chat software called BigBlueButton for many reasons, the first one being the licensing, but there are many reasons.
Drupal toolbar not working in dev environments in Firefox? Here's why.
Drupal's toolbar not showing due to Uncaught DOMException quota has been exceeded may be due to sites sharing a top-level domain (default for some local development environments like DDEV) combined with a Firefox bug.
Upgrade from Drupal 6 or 7 when it is right for you: In the era of modern Drupal, release cycles of major versions have only minor importance
Drupal 7 has a much longer lifespan than the (already pushed back) official date, and Drupal 8 has an essentially infinite lifespan because it can update in-place to Drupal 9 easily and the same will be true of Drupal 10, 11, ∞. There's no reason to rush an upgrade— but there's no reason to wait either.
