Interesting New Modules

Commerce Reset

Allows you to clear out Drupal Commerce orders, transactions and customer profiles to a near blank slate. Useful for when development is completed.

URL Alias Sync

A module to automatically update all path aliases of entities which reference separate entities whose path alias has just changed.

Quickbooks Online API

Simple integration with the Quickbooks Online API. No user interface, for developers only.

Responsive Frames (sandbox)

Provides a text filter that wraps iframes with containing divs and optionally provides CSS to make the frames responsive. Essentially this module makes frames (most commonly videos) behave like images with the width of 100%.

JSON/JSONB Field

For D8 and PostgreSQL only. Implements a Drupal field type that stores JSON or JSONB data.

Multi Value Field Overrides (sandbox)

Allows you to remove some of the basic functionality that Drupal automatically adds to mutli-value fields, such as draggable handles, header row, and the add more button.
