Discography module - in development notice

hi Guys,

I've just been comissioned to develop a discography.module for Drupal. As the name suggests, it's designed to allow site admins who manage band/artist/label sites to insert discography information into a Drupal site, without having to jump through hoops with CCK & views.

I've had enough emails from site admins, getting stuck and asking for help, to know that there would be a demand for this module. Thought I'd post a notice up here to alert the art & music group to progress.

  1. Release name (node title)
  2. Release type (Album/single/ep/other)
  3. Release format (Vinyl/CD/DIGITAL/Cassette/DAT/DVD)
  4. UPC (unique product code)
  5. Record Label
  6. Artist
  7. Track Listing (including audio previews)
  8. ISRC codes (per track)
  9. Release date
  10. Release information (node body)
  11. Amazon/itunes/shop links.
  12. Release artwork
  13. Release genre

Media Sprint TODO?

The Media Sprint 2009 Wiki has a rough outline, based on an earlier document started by arthurf, but needs some serious fleshing out. I plan to begin working in earnest again on the sprint later next week and the following (am trying to slot 3-4 solid working days towards it).

There are also several volunteers who have offered to help over the coming weeks as well. We need to try to build some organization.

Solution for media upload and distribution


Looking to identify the best web based solution (Drupal or third party) that would allow a content creator to upload and distribute media (video, audio, photos, ...for starters) to external sites and services.


These would vary depending on the specific needs. Could be a combo of Drupal modules, third-party solutions or both.


  • Web based service that can embed on any web page

The future of the asset module

I've been doing some thinking about the future of the asset module. First of all, I'm completely dedicated to bringing it to Drupal 6 and beyond. What is not sure however is in which form it will move forward. With the improved hook_form and specifically with filefield and emfield tying into the youtube api, flvmediaplayer, the new media player et al, I certainly don't want to duplicate efforts. The asset module itself is quite a big project and maintaining it requires a lot of my time.

That's why I've been thinking lately of stripping the asset module down to the asset wizard: leaving the uploading of files to the *field modules (having the admin decide which modules he prefers and what type of files he needs) and managing them with the asset wizard. The asset wizard could be taken so much further if it could get all the attention it deserves. One thing I could use help on is the interface from a usability perspective: both on the asset wizard itself and on how to tie it in the different fields (filefield, emfield, ...) and editors (TinyMCE, WYSIWYG, ...). Everything is welcome: from concepts and wireframes to mock-ups and patches.

How do you want to handle the files and embedded media that have been already been imported by media mover, uploaded by filefield or integrated by emfield?
