Drupal Themeing, and other projects

There is already a SSO Module for Drupal 5.x, Unfortunately, the module Drake , which is meant to be a bridge allowing you to run Cake applications within Drupal, seems moribund. There is, for sure, another whole blog entry about Drupal modules I’m learning Drupal bit by bit - one of the first tasks was to learn how to make a new theme. It’s one of those things which is actually fairly straightforward-seeming … until you hit a snag.

No more custom CMS!

Zen and the Art of Nonprofit Technology

February 18, 2008 This is a rant. There are quite a number of really good CMS systems (both open source and proprietary – I’d say there are a good solid dozen) that have large user bases, many developers and vendors who implement them, and their are lots of new modules and functionality being added every day. The other 15% might want or need a more specialized CMS (like OpenACS, or a proprietary one,) or might need some modules developed for them.

Home About Me Subscribe Zen and the Art of Nonprofit Technology Thoughtful and sometimes snarky perspectives on nonprofit technology Free and open source tool #15: MPower Open CRM April 14, 2008 I am so far behind, it’s not funny. Maybe we’ll see a downloadable virtual machine with MPower installed running off a SQLite db. :-) I’m also hoping to see some modules for integration with Drupal put together.

Build vs “Buy”

Zen and the Art of Nonprofit Technology

And I’ve also been involved in projects to create interesting and somewhat customized web functionality - but those are being done with adding custom modules to an open source CMS. From my perspective, exhaust all of the “buy&# options: open source/proprietary/SaaS out-of-the-box, customized open source/SaaS, or integration of already existing components, or building modules on top of open source tools, before you take on building something new from the ground up.

The joy of Drupal (and other tales)

My next step is to try and create a simple theme (so I understand how theming works,) and write a module (so I understand how modules work.) I’ve been working with Drupal a fair bit over the last few weeks, with the ultimate goal to basically be able to really work with it to create sites. I converted my (very simple) consulting site to Drupal, without any bells and whistles.

The “Open Source Software is Free” myth

Zen and the Art of Nonprofit Technology

Home About Me Subscribe Zen and the Art of Nonprofit Technology Thoughtful and sometimes snarky perspectives on nonprofit technology The “Open Source Software is Free&# myth July 14, 2008 I had a startling realization a few days ago. Basically, the open source ethos is that you modify core code only as a last resort, but do customizations via modules and add-ons, solving what you call a major flaw.

Drupal and Postgresql

Zen and the Art of Nonprofit Technology

There are several core modules with PostgreSQL problems in Drupal 6, so I might actually go back and work on those first, before I can think about tackling what’s wrong with install.php and PostgreSQL A while ago, I joined a bunch of groups at groups.drupal.org , thinking I’d pick up some interesting ideas, and meet some folks who were doing cool stuff with Drupal.

January 29, 2008 I don’t exactly know where the exclamation point came from, but if you want a scarily easy CMS to install, Joomla is a place to start. On Modules it was a little better, but again there was lots of comercial stuff… I found it a very comercialized communities and didnt get to know users and developers talk exchange freely… would you clarify me on that?
