How can we improve frontend sprints at Drupal events?

At DrupalCamp Ghent, we held a very small frontend BOF, with myself, Laurii, Emma.maria, and guest frontender Xano.

It quickly became a retrospective on the Friday sprints that took place at DrupalCon Amsterdam. The collective thoughts were not positive. It felt like we fell way short of our goals and potential for the Friday sprint. Drupalcon Friday sprints are about introducing people to sprinting and it feels like we failed badly at that.

Here were some of the problems:

  • Newbies did not get enough help
  • The few people helping the newbies did not get enough support

Mobile CMS screenshots of Litely on iPad

Litely has very good user interface elements for managing their content, some of this can be used as inspiration for Drupal's mobile user interface. I tried the CMS on Litely photo editing app. Below are screenshots of the app's core functionalists. This app , as the screenshots show, has a very good design that uses contrasting colors and very light translucent icon. The app has a very good user experience is these ways:

Add favorite/heart toggle and user rating to module contrib page

Hello Everyone,

I'm not sure where the best place to ask this question is - so forgive me if this isn't the best place. Has a discussion already been started about improving upon the current module page? If so can you kindly point me to it?

If not, what do you guys think about adding a favorite/heart toggle feature and user rating feature to module contrib page?

I use a similar feature on http://themeforest.net (http://note.io/1mnVuc3) and http://wordpress.org (http://note.io/1mnVuc3) to save and organize modules that I come across while searching for themes/plugins.

Redesigned Drupal.org profile page: your feedback needed!

Hi everyone! We're in the process of redesigning the profile page on Drupal.org, and we need the community's feedback! You can find the issue at: https://www.drupal.org/node/2281763.

Specific feedback needed:

  1. Assuming that we're keeping the current theme, does the organization of information make sense on the page?
  2. Is there any new information we should be collecting on profiles? Since this will require refactoring several of the data elements in profiles, we have a great opportunity to allow users to show/share more about themselves.

Make default publishing options optional

Over the years, most of my clients have been confused by the default publishing options - Published, Promote to frontpage, and Sticky at top of lists - appearing on all content types. I think it is great that these options are available in core, but I can say for projects I work on we rarely use these on more than one or two content types. I can understand how having options on the node form that aren't being used would be confusing for content editors.

Improve D.O. profile page: remove links that say "These pages have been disabled due to high traffic..."

To improve the friendliness of the individual profile page, it would be great to convert some of the non-used links into plain text. It is disappointing to have a lot of links that all give me the same, non-informative message when I click on them, namely: "These pages have been disabled due to high traffic. We apologize for the inconvenience. Thanks!"

Wheels To Borrow Instead of Reinvent

Clipboard integration

I've made a short video how it works in WP when you buy a commercial product called Image Elevator. I was in luck to have beta test it and now i use it on my blog. Using it (like on Gmail) is just amazing - it makes writing a blog post really fast and natural as using MS Word.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MdVca8bhv3k it is under 1 minute

If this could be achieved in Drupal it would be a killer feature for all content creators.

The nearest implementation I've found is filefield sources (with clipboard) + insert, but it is not as sleek as seen on video.

Trying out a new tool for surfacing good ideas

It's been a pet peeve of mine for a long time that, while D.O and G.D.O have a lot of great ways to add ideas and discuss them there's really no efficient way of collectively prioritizing the ones we should focus our efforts on.

I have spent a lot of time trying out different tools that do this, as well as trying to design and build them. We may at some point reach a home-grown solution, but in the meantime I have found a very simple and effective tool that I'm trying out. It's called Tricider. I've posted an initial question here:
