Pusher Wallpaper (1920x1080)

Open Source Art

July 19, 2016

We've used Pusher on so many projects we've lost track, especially now that Laravel supports it as an event backend! It's a terrific way to manage and broadcast events across your ecosystem. Enjoy this cool Pusher-themed wallpaper!


Chef Wallpaper (1920x1080)

Open Source Art

July 17, 2016

We like to think of Chef, like a lot of other folks, as "Puppet for developers", although there is a lot of overlap. We've used both tools with wonderful results. Chef is great, especially with the addons. Our creative crazies simply couldn't publish a Puppet wallpaper without doing one on Chef as well, so ..... here it is! Enjoy!


Blender Wallpaper (1920x1080)

Open Source Art

July 16, 2016

Blender is far from being the "poor man's Maya" as it once was. It's pretty happening these days, with a 3D modeling/rendering feature set that runs end to end. The village idiots/creative crazies here at Incursus love Blender so much, that they went to the fuss to make this cool artistic homage. Enjoy!


Vagrant Wallpaper (1920x1080)

Open Source Art

July 16, 2016

Vagrant is one of those tools, like Puppet, that is just such a tremendous time saver. Creating identical computing environments has never been easier! Our devops crew swears by it, and so should you! Enjoy this homage to another killer open source platform from the "creative crazies" at Incursus!

Extending Twig in Drupal 8 to Add Your Own Filters

Article

July 16, 2016

One of the best changes implemented in Drupal 8 was the implementation of the Twig templating engine. Packed with features, it is light years beyond doing it the old way with native PHP template files (a la Drupal 7 and earlier). However, you may come across the need to "extend" it to add your own capabilities. In this article, we'll explore just how simple it is to add your own content filters to the template engine.

Font Awesome has served the community well over the years. Well, make way for Fort Awesome, the commercial successor, which is absolutely unbelievable! So cool, in fact, that the creative crazies here at Incursus decided to make this cool wallpaper ... enjoy!

Bitly links are short, as is this paragraph. With that, enjoy this little homage to a service that we've all come to love over the years!
