What is virtual reality? 

Virtual reality (VR) typically refers to computer technologies that use virtual reality headsets to generate the realistic images, sounds and other sensations that replicate a real world environment or create an imaginary setting. 

VR also simulates a user's physical presence in this environment. VR has been defined as "a realistic and immersive simulation of a three-dimensional 360-degree environment, created using interactive software and hardware, and experienced or controlled by movement of the body”

We know the world through our senses and perception systems. In school we all learned that we have five senses: taste, touch, smell, sight and hearing. 

These are, however, only our most obvious sense organs. The truth is that humans have many more senses than this, such as a sense of balance for example. These other sensory inputs, plus some special processing of sensory information by our brains ensure that we have a rich flow of information from the environment to our minds.

How to get awesome virtual reality experiences?

Virtual Reality is used in wide range of systems such as headsets, omni-directional treadmills, special gloves and other hardware devices.  These are used to actually stimulate our senses together in order to create the illusion of reality.
This is more difficult than it sounds since our senses and brains are finely tuned to provide us with an absorbing experience.  If anything is even a little off we can usually tell. . And if you’re using virtual reality, you’ll listen to terms such as immersiveness and realism at different times. The problems in virtual reality experiences are partly technical and also partly conceptual. Virtual reality technology needs to take our physiology into account. For example, the human visual field does not look like a video frame. The peripheral vision is outside your vision, if it were gone you’d notice. Similarly when what your eyes and the vestibular system in your ears tell you are in conflict it can cause motion sickness. This is what happens to some people on boats or when they read while in a car.

Getting the best of VR apps

This may seem like a lot of effort, and it is! What makes the development of virtual reality worthwhile? The potential entertainment value is clear. Immersive films and video games are good examples. Media and the entertainment industry is trillion dollar one and consumers are always looking for innovation.  Virtual reality has many other, more serious, applications as well.

There are a wide variety of applications for virtual reality which include:

  • Architecture
  • Sport
  • Medicine
  • Arts
  • Entertainment

Wherever it is too dangerous, expensive or impractical to do something in reality, virtual reality is the answer. There are a wide variety of applications available for virtual reality from aviation to healthcare to take virtual risks in order to gain real world experience.

One of the most exciting parts for a iPhone app developer and Android app developer is being able to build your virtual reality mobile apps and then experience it for yourself for the first time

Experience virtual reality with mind-blowing features 

There are many different types of virtual reality systems, but they all share the same characteristics such as the ability to allow the person to view three-dimensional images. These images look life-sized to the person.

A virtual environment should provide the appropriate responses in real time, as the person explores their surroundings. The problems arise when there is a delay between the person’s actions and system response or latency which then disrupts their experience. The person realizes that they are not in a real-world environment and adapt their activities accordingly which results in an artificial, mechanized way of interaction.

In summary

Virtual reality is the creation of a virtual environment presented to our senses in such a way that we experience it as if we were really there. It uses an array of technologies to achieve this goal and is a technically complex accomplishment that has to account for our perception and cognition.

VR is used in games, entertainment and many other serious applications. The technology is becoming cheaper and more widespread. We can expect to see many more innovative uses for the technology in the future and perhaps a fundamental way in which we communicate and work thanks to the possibilities of virtual reality.

Drupal 7 users usually struggle to set up an effective system of moving to live sites. If you change any settings on a development  site, it is very difficult those settings to move live. Drupal 8 new configuration system is set to resolve all these issues Drupal developer is facing.

Drupal 8 provides new ways to tailor and deploy content that looks great on any mobile device. However when you work with Drupal, there is always something is there in Drupal 8 for you to love.

Code driven development in Drupal 8

Drupal 6: Features module is used export configuration to PHP code.
Drupal 7: Features modules brings more functionalities, but relying on third parties and it is incomplete.
Drupal 8: Content and configuration are being separated and configuration is text-based.

Drupal 8 Configuration Management System
In Drupal 8 new configuration system it is easy to get a copy of the development site with the changes and import those changes into the live sites.

There are two types of configuration in Drupal 8:

  1. Simple configuration
  2. Configuration entities

Simple Configuration

Simple configuration will store the basic configurations such as integers, boolean values or texts. Simple configuration has one version, and similar to using variable_set()  and variable_get() in Drupal 7.

Configuration Entities

Configuration entities including content types will enable the creation of zero or more complex. Examples of configuration entities contains content types, views and image styles.

Configuration can override in settings.php as in drupal 7. These overridden $config variables has high priority than values provided by modules. It is a good method for storing sensitive data.

The configuration system implements Drupal\Core\Config\ConfigFactory::get() to override $config variables.

How Configuration Management Works?

Configuration files are found inside the /config/install/ directory. These files will be created when a module is first installed and will not be used on module update.

After installing Drupal 8, two random named directories will be created in the public files folder. Generally that will mean the directory for sync files is in /sites/default/files/  and can change this location by an instruction.

 

An active directory is to keep currently active configuration. Active configuration will be stored in the database and done by the way for performance and some security reasons. Also it can push the configuration storage to use the file system using Configuration Tools module.

The staging directory is the place from where the configuration is synchronized/imported and it is empty until the configuration will be exported/imported.

Drupal 8 UI For Configuration management  
Configuration > Configuration synchronization.

Synchronize: Synchronize the changes from a file that you have imported.
Import: This allows you to import sync changes from the other sites.     

User interface settings for Configuration Management are very easy, but still have significant limitations such as:

  • Can't select multiple component at once and can't select a content type as well as multiple fields.  
  • Single features can't be exported into a file and can copy-and-paste the details.

Features module can be used for more advanced configuration management system. Import configuration settings can't be done until both the exporting and importing sites should have exactly the same UUID.

Drush Configuration Management
Drush is a wonderful shell interface to manage Drupal cloud server command line. It is a very useful tool to perform various tasks using a single or few commands, and to avoid many clicks and page refreshes in the UI.

Drush config commands used In Drush 8
drush config-export - exports the configuration to your sync directory.Current contents of your export directory (called "sync" by default) will be deleted.
Config-export - Export the configuration to a directory.
