Contributed Module Ideas

This group should probably have more organizers. See documentation on this recommendation.

When a developer has an idea for a module, they are often not the only one with that idea.

By announcing module ideas here, this group aims to:

  • Reduce module duplication. We can prevent two independent developers from writing separate, duplicate modules.
  • Increase developer collaboration. We can get interested developers working together at an early stage of development.
  • Improve module quality. Others can shape and improve the ideas, leading to a better module from the beginning (or, at the least, a better road map for future development.)

Before submitting a new module idea, please do a little research and search for an existing module with the same functionality.

Relaxed date/time field type?

I would like to use a date and/or time field that is less strict and can store just a year, or year&month.
When searching for available modules I only found "Partial Date" which is for version 7. Are there any other similar modules available for version 8?

Preferably the module could also handle date/time ranges.
For example "1999/09" is actually an implicit date range 1999/09/01 to 1999/09/30. Or an actual explicit range "2010 Jan" - "2015 Sep".

Apache Solr View Count module

Apache solr search seems to lack proper support for indexing node view count and making it useful in sorting search results (Somewhat similar issue https://www.drupal.org/node/1149398). We recently stumbled upon this and decided to come up with a module that supports both nodeview_count (https://www.drupal.org/project/nodeviewcount) and statistics module. I have added the sandbox module https://www.drupal.org/sandbox/selvamkf/2602310. Expecting to see your input if any.

Content forwarding

The typical content creation process in for a Drupal site is to have the content creators do so on the production system, because databases are copied down, not up.

I'm working on a module that will be used, as an example, to allow the content creators to work on a staging server, and upon performing any CRUD on content, a transaction will be sent (REST for starters) to the production server, having it perform the same operation.

I am making a site wide subscription module

I had a need for a subscription module that would let users (anonymous or authenticated) to subscribe and receive an email when site content changed. I looked around and found a module that allowed users to subscribe to individual nodes, but I needed one that would allow a user to fill out one form and then be notified when any content on the site was updated.

So I have started to build one in my sandbox. You can see it here:
Subscriber
Any suggestions from others would be most appreciated.

Log of updates performed and send monthly summary

I have a need for a module that logs the core and module updates performed.

Phase 1 would simply display a monthly summary of the updates performed.

Phase 2 would allow the monthly summary to be emailed to the site owner.

SVG Image Formatter

I developed a new sandbox module at https://www.drupal.org/sandbox/neilgardner/2505991 and demoed at http://demo.multifaceted.info to enable normal image fields to accept SVG files just like any other images and to display PNG alternatives for legacy browsers. It works with both the default Drupal image upload widget and Media 2's media browser widget.

Automatic document generation for contributed and custom Module

Hi,
Whenever we install a new module, We will search for its configuration options. Even though the module has description page, there are not many modules which describe what it does in a developer's perspective.

So I decided to create a module which describes a module based on hooks, menus, schema, variables and other drupal entities it uses.

I would love to hear some suggestions based on this idea.

Module to insert custom Javascript onto pages

Hi,

I have a lot of Javascripts on my site, VWO, Inspectlet, Optimize.ly, Google Adwords conversion, etc.
I know there are modules for each and everyone of these, the problem is the the developer (me) must download these, install them, check into Github, the whole get this online.

What I would want is, people from the marketing department to do this themselves.
This not only speeds up the development time, it also speeds up the site, because all those modules are not necessary.

Better patch management

Everyone seems to have their own ways of dealing with patch maintenance. I'd like to see this improved and standardized.

So far there is one module called patch_manager I've found that attempts this, but it tries to alter the source code from the UI, which seems unnecessary, and uses nodes for patch metadata. See https://www.drupal.org/project/patch_manager

Here are some ideas for features I'd like to see:

A configurable content type plug-in to render any view

Our website will be making strong use of Views, Panels and Panelizer to provide a unique user experience. CTools already creates content types that can be used for Panels for every display for all the views.

I have created a small module that creates a CTools content type plug-in that is configurable and allows a content manager to select a specific view, select a specific display and define arguments if any.

Although it is somewhat duplicative of what views already provides, but sometimes I find it difficult to wade through all of those views.

Display warning for variables overwritten in settings.php

I am loooking for a lightweight-solution to remind myself (or co-workers) about which Drupal-variables are overwritten in settings.php and can not be changed in the admin UI.

For example, in our prod-host we use compressed CSS/JS-files. The options are defined in settings.php.prod:

$conf['preprocess_css'] = TRUE;
$conf['preprocess_js'] = TRUE;

In our dev-host we want our assets to remain untouched, so our settings.php.dev reads:

$conf['preprocess_css'] = FALSE;
$conf['preprocess_js'] = FALSE;

Glift for Drupal

Hi everyone,
I'm planning to write a module to integrate the wonderful software Glift (http://www.gliftgo.com) into Drupal. Glift is a Javascript viewer for SGF files, a format commonly used to store game records for the game of Go (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Go_(game)).

I did a detailed check and found no trace of any plan to integrate Glift into Drupal yet. There is however a wordpress module already doing this.

I have created an empty sandbox here: https://www.drupal.org/sandbox/varenius/2345991 to serves as home for development.
