HTML5

Welcome to the Drupal HTML5 Group

html5+drupal logo

This is a discussion and working group for anyone interested in implementing HTML5 markup and API's in Drupal. We are working on several projects to provide HTML5 support for Drupal 7, and pushing to get HTML5 native markup and form elements into Drupal 8 core.

HTML5 Tools is a module for overriding what core is doing. http://drupal.org/project/html5_tools
It works with the Elements module. http://drupal.org/project/elements
HTML5 Base is a base theme for creating HTML5 themes. http://drupal.org/project/html5_base
Semantic Views can help you control the markup of your Views. http://drupal.org/project/semanticviews

Going to DrupalCon Chicago? Look out for a core conversation about getting HTML5 into core, and for code sprints to help with the work. And wear a HTML5 t-shirt on the day of the core conversation to show your support.

Year end Drupal 8 Mobile Initiative Status

Hi all,

Last week's meeting was cancelled because I was sick and this week's meeting is, unfortunately, going to be cancelled too as I'll be attending a funeral back in the US. (I live in Taiwan.)

But, we will be revving things up to 11 the first week in January with 2 world-wide meetings (1 for US/Europe/Africa and 1 for India/Asia/Pacific). We'll be finishing up making all the admin forms work on mobile and REWRITING ALL THE CSS IN CORE. Stay tuned for details.

And have a happy holidays!

Responsive Drupal.org: A Sass and Susy framework

Previously, we had a friendly discussion on what we could use as a responsive layout framework for Drupal.org. Rupl, Banghouse, and myself played around with a lot of the options discussed in that post to work out which would be a good fit for us. Snugug also volunteered to help us out with technical questions and implementation.

We ended up deciding that using a Sass framework solves a lot of our problems, specially Susy. Implementing this framework is no small feat. We wrote a little summary of the Sass, Compass, and Susy implementation.

Spark: WYSIWYG editors evaluation — call for feedback!

For the Spark project, we're looking for a WYSIWYG editor. It must work well on mobile devices, hence HTML5 is pretty much a necessity. A WYSIWYG editor still involves a lot of JavaScript, so solid JavaScript is also important.

However, for the Spark project, the WYSIWYG goal is somewhat different than the "typical" WYSIWYG goal. We're looking for a "true WYSIWYG" editor, which we can define as a WYSIWYG that matches all CSS selectors identically like the eventual document would.

Widgets (wdgt)

I use the application Hype to generate HTML5 compatible animations. Hype can generate a wdgt file that will run in iBooks or as a Dashboard app on the Mac. Is there any initiative to be able to upload these widgets directly into Drupal as a Drupal field?

Microdata office hours

Start: 
2011-09-20 10:00 - 11:00 America/New_York
Organizers: 

Since the usual folks on the Linked Data planning call can't join this week, I'll be holding microdata office hours instead.

If you develop field formatters in contributed modules and want to figure out how to enable microdata for them, I would be happy to help you figure it out. Join IRC to ask me questions... #drupal-html5 or #drupal-rdf (and ping me with 'linclark' to get my attention ;-)

Even if you don't use IRC, feel free to contact me and we'll figure out a way to work together on this.

Call for prototypers

If you have development chops, designers and other contributors of this community need your help bringing designs to life.

Allow me to paint a picture of the need and skills required...

The task of creating content has been redesigned (http://groups.drupal.org/node/217434), and has reached a point of consensus. At this point, the design really needs to interactive to flush out how all of the various interactions will work (or don't). Additionally, once made interactive, we validate the direction by testing the prototype with end users.

HTML5 Myths

(Let's create a Myth versus Fact document to answer reoccurring concerns about HTML5 and Drupal. Anyone can edit this document and provide answers. HEAVY rewriting is welcome at this stage!)


=====

Myth: HTML5 is not done, we should wait until it's done before implementing it in Drupal.

Fact: Most of HTML5 is dividable in 3 different groups: "it just works", "degrades by default", and "some effort required". See http://mathiasbynens.be/notes/html5-levels for additional information.

Drupal HTML5 Logo

html5 logo and drupal html5 logo together

HTML5 now has a logo. http://www.w3.org/html/logo/

So the movement to get HTML5 and Drupal to work together should have one too.

I've posted it at http://jensimmons.com/news/html5-logo-drupal because a) groups.drupal.org doesn't allow uploads of .ai files, and b) the logo is licensed Creative Commons attribution, not GPL, and that's not allowed on g.d.o either.
