Around 6 months ago, I introduced Seed, our Drush-based Drupal development server environment.

Here at Fuse, we’ve been working on a few commerce projects lately. We've been using Commerce Kickstart as the base for some projects and customize to meet client business requirements. By using Kickstart, we no longer need to download a long list of modules and configure them individually, it saves us many hours of work and save money for our clients. For users that are new to Drupal, and want to have an online store, Commerce Kickstart is great.

If you’re using Sass to preprocess your stylesheets, you’ve probably discovered partials. A partial is a sub-stylesheet, intended to be included as part of a main stylesheet rather than being processed into its own file. Partials are great for building more organized stylesheets, but managing lots of separate includes by hand can be a drag. Thankfully, we can use the sass-globbing gem to make use of partials without the extra overhead.
