The first thing I need to clarify is that we are not going to talk about “using links” in Drupal 8. We’re actually going to talk about how to build custom links in Drupal 8. Well, I wanted to write about this but because of the character limitation of the title string I used that form. So keep reading if you want to know how to build links programmatically in Drupal 8. Do you follow me?…

I always (or almost always) had worked on Drupal projects with the same stack of versions, so I only had one environment set up.

The previous Tuesday I was practicing with JavaScript and using console.log() to show data (nothing serious, if it was important I had used breakpoints, of course :-P), and in an outflow of extensive information, I remembered a nice way to organize it visually: You could give color and shape to the information displayed through console.log().
