Today is a big day for the #d8rules initiative! Our crowd funding campaign was successfully funded and reached 100 % on Drupalfund. We really want to thank all you great 125+ supporters from the community: together you made this happen. Fago & Klausi may continue with the progress that has been made already for porting Rules to Drupal 8 now and we are looking forward to gather additional funds in order to make sure that all 3 milestones can be reached in time!
Today, I've the pleasure to introduce the #d8rules initative, our combined effort to get the Rules module ported to Drupal 8 in time!
Drupal 8 is coming...
Fortunately, the first beta of Drupal 8 is coming closer so it's time to make sure all the modules are ported and ready for Drupal 8. Unfortunately, the Rules module - my long term number one contributed module - is about to be left behind. I've worked a lot on Drupal 8 to get critical Entity API improvements like the new Entity Field API (called Entity Property API at the time of the introduction) as well as the new Typed data API done. Of course, the work on core is time intensive, not "done" yet and won't stop - so there is not a lot contribution time left for my contributed modules. :/
