Weekly Web Updates – September 25, 2017

We’ve added support for embedding Theta360 panoramic images in Drupal and the L&ITS MediaWiki site. The shortcode for Drupal is available in our documentation.


Fixes and Tweaks

  • We’ve applied a back-end performance tweak to the script that syncs users and groups between the directory and Drupal sites, dropping the time it takes for this task to run from a couple hours to about twenty seconds. Course Hub syncs still take a few hours since they need to fetch updates from third party course sites.

Ongoing Work

  • Creating a new website for the Middlebury Institute of International Studies.
  • Creating a new automatically generated course catalog.
  • Building out the configuration of our CAS servers in Chef, which is a configuration management system. We have already completed this work for our Drupal, WordPress, MediaWiki, GO, Omeka, and the Course Catalog services.
  • Upgrading the Drupal sites for the Davis programs, Dining Menus, and Museum of Art to Drupal 8.
