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.

Theme Forms API (allow themes to modify FAPI forms)

To get this group kick started, I thought I would post my own recent idea for a new module. It’s still in the proposal stage and has no code, but early feedback will definitely help its development…

My current (flawed) setup


I've created this new Trading group. My goals are similar to those of the Stock group, so I'm posting this to you guys as well.

I'm a trader/programmer who has set up a private site meant to eventually manage a little fund for my friends and family. My current setup allows me to input and browse trades I make, so that I'll later be able to track my progress. Here's what I'm currently using (I have done no custom programming yet):

taxonomy: I currently have "market" and "system" categories. These are heirarchical, so I could have a market called "GBPUSD" with parent "Forex". A system could be a particular setup or signal within a larger system, for example "spinning top" within "chart patterns". I'll be using these taxonomies to browse my trades and judge which trading systems work with which markets, etc. I want to eventually be able to do all kinds of statistical analysis based on these categories.

An Introductory Message

Here is the current state of affairs: there are two modules (created by Khalid Baheyeldin) that deal with the stock market: stock and stockapi. The first one deals with displaying stock pricing information in both a page format and in a block format. The second one is an API that the first one uses to get the stock information. The API uses Yahoo! Finance as it's source of stock information.
