Welcome to Drupal's wiki organizing project ideas for Google's Summer of Code 2016. Please utilize this wiki to document project ideas and list yourself as a potential student or mentor. Find us on Freenode at #drupal-google if you want to chat.

Edit this wiki and add your project ideas. If you want to mentor the task, add your name. If you DON'T want to be a mentor, leave the field blank as other mentors might be interested if project is selected. If you plan to mentor any projects this year, please add a short bio under the 'Interested Mentors' section of this wiki. We just require your name, timezone, languages spoken, and a short description of your involvement with Drupal. As we respect privacy, listing yourself here is not a requirement to participate.

How to think of tasks?

  • Drupal 8 is here! There is TONS work to be done!
  • Review current projects being ported to Drupal 8 @ https://contribkanban.com/board/contrib_tracker
  • Have a module you wish was ready for Drupal 8?
  • Maintain a module and need help taking it to the next level?
  • Have you ever said "Drupal can't do that?"
  • Tasks from previous years/organizations are listed at legacy summer of code websites.
  • Projects from previous Drupal GSoC: 2015, 2014, 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008, 2007, 2006, 2005

Guidelines

Anyone with a drupal.org account is allowed to post ideas into this wiki. Even if the idea is basic or not complete, please add whatever you have. Additional mentors are available if project idea is accepted. Students are encouraged to contact the project author via drupal.org contact page.

  • Arpit Jalan (ajalan065) - India - UTC +5:30 Hi, I'm Arpit Jalan and has been contributing to drupal for around ten months now. I have contributed few modules and patches, and has also helped in Code review, thus contributing to Drupal as far as I can. Regarding my previous experiences, I was a former intern at Innoraft Solutions Pvt Ltd.

=================================

Project Number: 2

Project Name: Drupal 8 media solution module

Project Approved by Admins? YES/NO

Project Mentors: slashrsm

Project Difficulty: INTERMEDIATE

Project Skills/Prerequisite: PHP, CSS, JavaScript, Git, ability to communicate with mentors on a weekly basis (chat and audio)

Project Description:

In Drupal 8 we took a slightly different approach with media. Instead going with one big media solution module we decided to start with smaller components and deliver feature-modules when we get this components in place (Entity browser, Entity embed, Media entity, File entity, Crop API, Image widget crop, ...).

Most of basic components are done. Now it is time to bundle them together with some default configuration and provide a feature module that will:
- create site-wide and user's media libraries,
- allow content creators to re-use existing media,
- allow content creators to attach media to a piece of content,
- allow content creators to embed media into WYSIWYG editors
- crop images,
- import media from 3rd party sources (Youtube, Instagram, Flickr, ...),
- ...

Final list of features will be agreed between the student and mentors at the beginning of the project.

Project Goal:

Final deliverable for this project will be media-focused feature module that will bundle components and configuration needed to provide agreed feature-set.

Project Number: 5

Project Name: Migrating Groups.Drupal.Org to Drupal Groups

Project Approved by Admins? YES/NO

Project Mentors: japerry

Project Difficulty: DIFFICULT

Project Skills/Prerequisite: Existing Drupal 7 module development required. Drupal 6 experience is also required. Having experience with Migrate, OG, and panels modules are a plus.

Project Description: GDO is a Drupal 6 site developed by volunteers about 6 years ago. Over the years it has aged to the point where its not possible to give it the necissary updates it needs.
In 2014/2015, the Drupal Assocation performed an audit of its content strategy, and determined that the content from groups would be better served if it was on drupal.org. See https://events.drupal.org/barcelona2015/sessions/future-groups-drupalorg for more info.

Since the Barcelona presentation, much work has been done to the underlying architecture on drupal.org, including enabling Organic groups and panels.

This project will start with creating the basic group structure on drupal.org for the various groups represented on gdo. The student will audit the existing D6 content structure and build the migration module classes to move the content to D7. Lastly, since we're not doing an all-at-once update, the student will create a tool that allows group maintainers automatically move their group and content to drupal.org.

Project Goal: To provide a tool that allows group maintainers to press a button and have their content move from gdo to drupal.org.

Project Resources: Students interested in this project should seek out japerry on #drupalorg to find out more information. We can provide you with a drupal.org and groups dev site so the student can play around with the sites.
The student should seek out information on Organic Groups and the migrate module before accepting this proposal.

Project Difficulty: DIFFICULT

Project Skills/Prerequisite: Coded Drupal 8 before.

Project Description: PostgreSQL and MySQL both now have the capability to store and query document data using JSON notation. The project is to make a Drupal 8 entity storage engine using these capabilities. In an ideal world, both will be supported but it is acceptable to support only one database engine.

Project Goal: At least entity tests should pass, ideally all relevant core tests should pass.

Project Resources: The https://www.drupal.org/project/mongodb project has an unfinished port which does this with MongoDB. I checked the feasibility of this at http://stackoverflow.com/q/35444927/308851 and http://stackoverflow.com/q/35444944/308851

Project Goal: To provide a module that allows unification of social networks modules, establishing route, link menus, and link tasks rules, as well as standard permissions. The student should also help to make some modules work with the new API.

Project Resources: The Drupal Social Initiative has existed for a few years and has had a number of meetings, calls and BoFs at DrupalCons. The student (Valentin Sánchez (gvso)) has contacted the organiser (Daniel Harris (dahacouk)) to see how he can help to get the Social API ready for D8.

    Project Name: Add password-based public-key encryption to Drupal 8

    Project Approved by Admins? YES/NO

    Project Mentors: colan, jibran, nerdstein, penyaskito (backup mentor)

    Project Difficulty: INTERMEDIATE

    Project Skills/Prerequisite: PHP, Public-Key Cryptography

    Project Description:

    The Encrypt module allows for pluggable encryption engines that can be used to secure Drupal content. However, the currently supported ones are either insecure (storing secrets on the Web server itself) or require externally-maintained key management services. Let's instead use pre-existing Drupal users' account passwords as the necessary secrets for managing encrypted data. This is a secure solution that provides a good user experience.

    Thanks to the ownCloud community, we have a model for this available over at ownCloud’s Data Encryption 2.0 Model. This is exactly what I described above, and they already have it implemented in their application (also written in PHP). Let's get this done in Drupal as well, both for field data and files.

    Project Goal:

    • Coordinate with the Encrypt and Key module maintainers as necessary to ensure a sustainable solution. At the time of this writing, these modules are under heavy development. (Encrypt is dependent on Key.)
    • Develop a key-provider plug-in module for use with Encrypt that includes CRUD operations for key handling.
    • Upgrade and integrate the Field Encryption module for encrypting field data; see D8 porting issue.
    • Upgrade and integrate the Encrypted Files module for encrypting files; see D8 porting issue.
    • Add Views support to Field Encryption and Encrypted Files.
    • Ensure secure data does not get cached unencrypted where it should not be. We'll most likely lose some performance here, but we need to balance it with security.
    • Monitor performance, and tune wherever possible. Some operations (e.g. encrypting a new data key for many users, generating all data keys for a new administrator) could be resource intensive.

    This idea started off as a discussion on the Drupal 8 porting issue for Field Encryption. Some more background information can be found there. Links in the above paragraphs should provide other helpful references.

    Project Name: Add code-generation to Rules for Drupal 8

    Project Approved by Admins? YES/NO

    Project Mentors: dasjo, klausi, fago

    Project Difficulty: INTERMEDIATE/DIFFICULT

    Project Skills/Prerequisite: Intermediate Development Skills for Drupal 8

    Project Description:

    Rules is one of the most popular modules from Drupal 5-7 and is installed on more than 20% of all Drupal sites. It allows site builders to implement custom workflows based on Events, Conditions & Actions. The #d8rules initiative is working on porting the module to Drupal 8 and would love to get your help on porting the Rules scheduler.

    An often wanted feature is a PHP export of Rules configuration, such that the overhead of the Rules engine is minimized and the execution can be easier debugged using common PHP debugging tools like xdebug. The scope of this proposal is to implement this code-generation as a caching strategy for the Rules module.

    First, you will learn the new Drupal 8 development best practices by studying the code of Rules for Drupal 8 which just had its first alpha release. Rules applies a lot of best practices by leveraging core plug-in & context systems, the Typed Data API and test-driven development.

    After doing that, you'll take some time to research PHP code generation strategies used by other project like Twig or Drupal console. You'll work with the Rules maintainers to determine which PHP code needs to be generated for rule configurations.

    As next step, you'll implement some prototype that will generate the PHP of a rule to see how well that works and do some before/after comparison.

    As last step, you'll work on getting your changes ready for the inclusion into the Rules code base. What means, based upon the prototype you'll make sure your implementation is complete and covers all rules Expression plugins, like loops. Finally, you'll have to add test coverage for your additions.

    Project Goal: If successful, your code will be included in Rules 8.x-3.x and help to improve the module's performance and debuggability.

    Project Name: Integration with CouchDB 2.0

    Project Approved by Admins? YES/NO

    Project Mentors: dixon_, timmillwood, jeqq

    Project Difficulty: Intermediate

    Project Skills/Prerequisite: PHP, Symfony, HTTP and REST APIs

    Project Description:

    The Relaxed Web Services already provides a very powerful REST API for pushing and synchronizing content between sites. By design it implements the HTTP API from CouchDB 1.x. But with CouchDB 2.0 there are new features and functionality we want to bring back to Drupal!

    Project Goals:

    The goal is to enhance both the Relaxed Web Services module and the CouchDB PHP Replicator to become API compatible with CouchDB 2.0. Some concrete implementation goals are:

    1. Implement the /_replicator endpoint
    2. Develop the Index module
    3. Implement the /_index endpoint
    4. Implement the /_find endpoint

    The student will primarily be evaluated based on process and effort and not based on how many goals that were completed. There might not be time to complete all goals from the list above.

    Project Name: Solving content conflicts with merge algorithms in Drupal 8

    Project Approved by Admins? YES/NO

    Project Mentors: dixon_, timmillwood, jeqq

    Project Difficulty: Difficult (but you'll have great support from us mentors, and you'll learn a lot)

    Project Skills/Prerequisite: PHP, Symfony, basic (or just some) understanding of merge algorithm

    Project Description:

    With the introduction of Multiversion module in Drupal 8 we suddenly have a very powerful content revision API that can handle branching and conflict DETECTION. But there is not yet a way to SOLVE revision conflicts.

    Project Goals:

    By the time the student takes on this project there will be a plugin API for different conflict resolution strategies in the Multiversion module. The goals for this project will be a mix between implementing resolution plugins and writing utility libraries in PHP and JS. The priorities are as follows:

    1. Plugin: Manual text merge
    2. Library: Develop a PHP library that can find common ancestry in the revision tree (a directed acyclic graph)
    3. Library: Develop a PHP library that can do a recursive 3-way merge
    4. Plugin: Automated recursive 3-way merge
      • Use libraries created in goal nr. 2 and 3
      • Implement plugin code to save the automatically merged revision

    The student will primarily be evaluated based on process and effort and not based on how many goals that were completed. There might not be time to complete all goals from the list above.

    Project Name: Making Drupal 8 work OFFLINE

    Project Approved by Admins? YES/NO

    Project Mentors: dixon_, mikl

    Project Difficulty: Difficult (but you'll have great support from us mentors, and you'll learn a lot)

    Project Skills/Prerequisite: PHP and good JavaScript skills. Experience with ReactJS or similar front end framework (such as Angular or Ember) is a big plus.

    Project Description:

    With Drupal 8 it's finally possible (easier) to integrate with JS frameworks such as ReactJS and PouchDB. With these tools it's possible to build Drupal 8 sites that work OFFLINE, without a network connection!

    Project Goal:

    To work on the existing decoupled proof-of-concept app that is using ReactJS components for Drupal 8.

    Specially, the goals are to extend and write more ReactJS components for rendering Drupal 8 content of various kinds and to enhance the Relaxed Web Service module wherever needed. The priorities of the goals are as follows:

    1. Fields components for most field types in core
      • Text and integers
      • Boolean
      • Option lists
      • Date and time
      • Telephone
      • Links
      • Files and images
      • Entity reference (two ways; rendering the title, rendering whole reference)
    2. Menu components (enhancing the existing one)
      • Single level menu
      • Recursive level menu
    3. Blocks component
    4. Views lists (or Index module lists)
    5. Add support for oAuth for both the frontend app and backend Relaxed module

    The student will primarily be evaluated based on process and effort and not based on how many goals that were completed. There might not be time to complete all goals from the list above.

    Project Difficulty: INTERMEDIATE

    Project Skills/Prerequisite: PHP, MIME / Mail

    Interested Students:

    Project Description:
    The Mailhandler is the most popular module to react on incoming mails. There is no activity yet with a Drupal 8 port.
    We have created a new pluggable framework inmail to process incoming mails that supports acquisition through IMAP or a pipe command directly from an MTA.
    Our suggestion is to build a Drupal 8 port based on inmail.
    The complexity of the mailhandler module will be significantly reduced.
    A POP3 plugin for inmail is also a welcome feature.
    Full (simpletest / unittest) coverage is a requirement.

    Project Goal: Create a complete Drupal 8 port of Mailhandler based on inmail

    Project Skills/Prerequisite: git expert, python, dreditor

    Interested student: OPEN

    Project Description:
    A proof of concept started at patch patrol on github where znerol has built python scripts to analyse patches and git repositories to extract information. One of the key ideas is that we understand patch dependencies/collisions, such as a commit X leads to patch Y..Z that no more apply.

    A new platform will fetch through drupal.org APIs recent issue activity and extract patches. Patches are analysed and stored as structural data. It will also continuously pull latest versions of the projects tracked.
    The platform will offer services to provide status info about a patch like
    - does it still apply to latest HEAD?
    - with what issues / patches will it collide?
    Dreditor should connect to this service and enrich the UI with relevant data.
    As a stretch goal it can also interact with drupal.org and automatically set issues to needs work that do no more apply or provide a reroll if possible.

    Project Goal: Provide a service that understands / interpretes all drupal.org patches and exposes valuable data through dreditor

    • Joseph Young (drupalmoff) - UK - UTC Hi, this is Joe and I am 20 years old. I'm a second year at the University of Bristol studying Computer Science. Before I came to Bristol I worked as a Drupal Support and Developer for Adaptive Web for the best part of a year. During the summer of first year, I went back to Adaptive to gain further experience in Drupal development, working on many custom projects and modules to meet the users needs. Unfortunately, Adaptive Web had not taken up Drupal 8 at the time I was working there, so I am very excited to have a chance to get my hands dirty in real development for a Drupal 8 module. I am interested in porting Stripe as I have experience using their API in a group project. The project is a room booking application which required taking payments for premium features, so we used Stripe as our payment service. I feel like porting this module will personally help me further my knowledge in Drupal 8.
