Drupal cheat sheets

Collection of some nice helper Drupal code examples that I need to use from time to time. Decided to put this stuff here because I constantly forget them ;)

Nested array which you need to use for select form element

Lots of time you have nested array like this

<?php
$plugins
= array(
 
'plugin_1' => array('title' => 'Plugin 1', ....),
 
'plugin_2' => array('title' => 'Plugin 2', ....),
);
?>

and you need select element with plugin key and title:

<?php
$form
['select_plugin'] = array(
 
'#type' => 'select',
 
'#title' => t('Select plugin'),
 
'#options' => array('' => t('Select plugin')) + array_map(function ($array) { return $array['title']; }, $plugins),
);
?>

How to render just one field from your entity

For example image field with thumbnail style:

<?php
$display
= array(
 
'label' => 'hidden',
 
'type' => 'image',
 
'settings' => array(
   
'image_style' => 'thumbnail',
   
'image_link' => '',
  ),
);
$wrapper = entity_metadata_wrapper('your_entity', $your_entity);
$image = field_view_value('your_entity', $your_entity, 'your_entity_field_picture_name', $wrapper->your_entity_field_picture_name->value(), $display);
drupal_render($image);
?>

How to reset Drupal 8 user password

You forgot your password and drush is not working, but you have access to files on server, then no problem:

<?php
# User ID 1 for root user.
$admin_user = entity_load('user', 1);
$admin_user->setPassword('new.admin.pass');
$admin_user->save();
?>

You can put this code in index.php or where it fits you better.
