Drupal for Fun
Platinum and gold sponsors
Drupal is a great platform for serious projects, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t have fun with it, and at the same time explore the boundaries of what Drupal was (or wasn’t) intended to do. This presentation will be a showcase of fun modules that serve unusual purposes.
To start, here are some of my own modules. The list will get longer as other inventive developers bring their own creations.
- Second Life Framework by Khalid Baheyeldin
This module is a simple Second Life framework, allowing objects inside Second Life, written in LSL script, to interact with applications on your Drupal web site, and do neat things.
- game API
Provides basic functionalities for jquery games, allowing users to play with other online users in real time.
A little game that uses the game API.
- guitar module
Turns ASCII guitar chord representations (often used on guitar chords websites, but really not that great for humans to read) into graphical representations of the chord fingering.
- rick-roll by Bill O’Connor
Redirects users if the url contains a specific keyword. Doesn’t really have any other purpose than to make a classic joke for your fellow developers.
- your module
If you will be at DrupalCon and you are interested in entertaining some people by giving a quick presentation about what your module does and how it works, send me a message using the contact form and I’ll add your module to the list.
