In Kalatheme in Kalabox on Pantheon for a minute about time, we pulled down a Kalatheme based sub-theme into a recently installed Kalabox on our laptop, so we could run it locally and work on the project using Eclipse or any other IDE.
In this article we explore a simple but realistic Git-based workflow for Multidev and non-Multidev topic branches of a Pantheon dev project.
Kalatheme is a very convenient theme to use, and should be the default theme for Panopoly, with all due respect. Peruse its Drupal project page. Panopoly + Bootstrap 3 + Bootstrap themes + browser based sub-theme generator (<- Bootswatch, etc., etc.!) + views grids + reusable custom CSS classes that can be registered as optional in any panels pane + advanced stuff for the folks that, inline with Kalatheme philosophy, don't like to admit they use it:Sass and Compass Tools.
Importing a pretty large D6 site into Pantheon (detailed instructions, with a little help from my friends)Sun, 2014-02-02 22:12 — victorkane
More and more of my clients are using Pantheon to host their Drupal based web applications. This is not an ad, it's just a fact. I'm finding more and more of my development work involves cloning Pantheon based workflow instances and coding and site building within that workflow, and I've seen how it has improved greatly over the years. Now I had to import a quite large Drupal 6 site for a client hoping for a trouble-free Drupal oriented hosting experience while we got on with the site renovation project. While the process was straightforward, and the necessary documentation is there (see References), I thought I'd share my experience as warm and fuzzies for others having to do the same:

The #DrupalPicchu sessions have been published, and I will be making the Drupal Lean Process presentation in Cusco. In preparation, the lit-drupal-lean project is in full swing right here on GitHub. Here's a short-list of what has been achieved so far:
- Some of the most important docs and guides and templates have been gleaned over to the wiki. That includes material on MVP Planning, structured (hypotheses-driven) user stories, collaborative design and style and code guides, scaffolding and a host of templates to people your issue queue.
- Milestone 1 is in full swing, and the closed issues include some very interesting stuff, like an everything in code manifesto and drush generated install profile + features solution, etc.
- The codebase in branch master already includes a complete distro starter set, which will then grow via the addition of features, some of which will be base features and will be turned on by the install profile, and some of them will be optional and simply present.
