2010.02.23 – Notes from KC Drupal Users Group
Last night marked a restart of the Kansas City Drupal Users Group with about twenty people in attendance. We were treated to pizza and about two hours of Drupal topic discussions. iLLin did a great job of presenting his use of Views, Templates, and Tables. I came away from the meeting with a list of items to research further.
- Image Resize Filter
- Image Insert Module
- Boost and APC Modules
- Subclipse plugin for Eclipse Editor
- Using WebEnabled for quick web site development collaboration.
- NodeReference Module
- OpenAtrium – Intranet in a box
- Features Module
- t() function
- l() function
- SCP replacement for FTP
- Node Reference
Afterward, I started Googling several topics and passing comments mentioned at the meeting. What follows are links to documents that look useful.
Often, the project module descriptions provide pertinent information but lack some information about how a particular module becomes useful. A web site that looks promising for information about the use of Drupal Modules is the abbridged descriptions from Affinity Bridge’s Feature Module Abridged.
Other useful Features resources:
- DPCI – A look at the Drupal Features module.
- Drupal Features Module – Feature module download.
- Drupal project module – managing a collection of Drupal entities to satisfy a certain use-case.
- DevelopmentSeed.org – Making and Using Features in Drupal
- Drupal Modules – Drupal module review for Features.
Drupal t() function
- Drupal API t() – Documentation on t(), translatable text function
- likemind Web Services – Drupal localization and the t() function
- Drupal Coder – Never use t function in a global context
- Performance impact with t function – Scaling locale (or, the t() function)
Drupal l() Function
- Drupal API l() – Documentation on l(), the Drupal link function
- CivicActions Empowered – Drush 2.0 released – Screencast
- Leveraging Drupal – Getting your site done right. I got this book from Amazon last week.
- Practical Subversion – Manage your code with ease using the Subversion version control system. I got this book at MicroCenter earlier this week.
