Mobile Initiative

Drupal 8 Mobile InitiativeThe Drupal 8 Mobile Initiative is a concerted effort to make Drupal 8 a first-class mobile platform. This is the official place to discuss those challenges and make plans! Want to help?

  1. Read the introductory blog post by John Albin Wilkins, the D8 Mobile Initiative lead.
  2. Checkout Shyamala’s Blog on the mobile initiative to find out what we’ve accomplished as of March 2013.
  3. Read the Mobile initiative page on drupal.org to fine most important places to help. We need documenters, reviewers, thinkers and coders.

Initiative Goals

To make Drupal a leading mobile CMS platform, the top issues we’ll need to address are:

A full description of the goals and detailed breakdown of associated tasks can be found on the Strategy for the Mobile Initiative document.

In addition to the issues in our initiative, we’ll work very closely with other Drupal 8 initiatives to ensure a complete mobile solution:

  • Web services for native app integration (Learn more about D8 WSCCI)
  • Blocks and layouts everywhere (Learn more about D8 SCOTCH)
  • HTML5 elements necessary for HTML5 Web apps (Learn more about D8 HTML5)

Issues to work on

You can find interesting stuff to work on by looking at the different topics in the Drupal 8 mobile initiative issue queue:

Sponsors

Several companies have generously provided assistance to the Mobile Initiative:

  • BrowserStack has provided a 10-user license to help initiative volunteers to test our work against a wide variety of browsers and devices.
  • Palantir is providing funding for several hours of JohnAlbin’s time each week to lead the Mobile Initiative.
  • At our request during Drupalcon Denver, Pantheon created a free service to host sandboxes for any work on Drupal 8 development.

Firefox OS and Drupal

Hi all,

A couple of days ago I had lunch with some guys from Mozilla Mexico and we were wondering how will the future of Firefox OS and Drupal will look like together. If I got it right FireFox OS does not have native apps, instead it will have resident app. In few words that means that FireFox OS will run out of the box HTML5 written apps. Please let me know your opinion about how would you think Drupal and FirefoxOS will play together, some thoughts on this topic could be:

1) How far is a Drupal responsive site to become a Firefox OS resident app.

should or should not wait for drupal 8

I am planning to build a mobile app with server side on drupal because of its advantages like cck, scalability, views/rules and above all my personal liking and exposure to it,
front end would be native. I need your support in three matters

1) should i wait for drupal 8 for next 2-3 months and then start working on it as it would give me options to explore new features and mobile frendly modules. My app first phase would require, views, cck, rules, flags, references and relations.

Or should i start it in drupal 7 itself

Update on D8 Mobile Initiative - further to meeting #38

ARCHITECT CSS

Further to Dries blog on Reducing risk in the Drupal 8 release schedule at http://buytaert.net/reducing-risk-in-the-drupal-8-release-schedule there is a need to consolidate and make sure that the CSS architecture fixes do not become a blocker. To ensure the same John has moved the fixes & issues around CSS Architecture to the JohnAlbin’s Mobile initiative sandbox. This will also ensure that all the commits are consolidated and pushed as meaningful chunks. Also the renaming of CSS files done during the Singapore sprint get recognition! So Join John @ the sandbox to make the much awaited CSS clean possible and become a part of Drupal 8 release!
