A quick update to report that, as of today, I’ve become a co-maintainer on the Features Extra Drupal module.
This time, I just wanted to get some patches committed, and since I’ve got the process down fairly well after my experience with Fill PDF and Meetup API.
Features Extra lets you export blocks and node queue definitions into code and works in conjunction with the Features module. It lets you export taxonomy vocabularies, too, but Features has native support for that now…so don’t use Features Extra for that.
It’s been a week of achievements over here. As I wrote, I accidentally became a co-maintainer of the Fill PDF module, and now I’ve finally released my own. You can view the Meetup API project page.
If you are a developer and want to integrate Meetup.com functionality and data with your site or that of a client, this module might be useful for you. Use it, improve it, contribute code back.
Today I got my CVS account for Drupal.org. It’s really funny how it happened. I was planning to apply for one anyway in the near future because I’m working on releasing a complementary Drupal module for the Meetup API I developed. However, I actually just wound up patching the Fill PDF module with some extra functionality (as part of client work) and was asked if I could just commit the change myself. I couldn’t refuse something as cool as that, so I applied for a CVS account, and it was approved.
I’ll be committing that change soon, so if you are looking to fill in PDF forms with data from nodes and such, check out Fill PDF.
Now accidentally co-maintained by WizOne Solutions!
Furthermore, I intend to commit it with Git.
Do you have any fun stories of how you got your CVS account? Do share.
It’s a bit late for me to write much on this, so I’ll write another post later on, but in short: http://github.com/wizonesolutions/meetup_api
Pull it down and contribute back if you want to see this grow 🙂 The README.txt that comes with it explains a bit about how it works.
But it doesn’t stop here. Next on the list is its companion Drupal module, of course! And maybe some other stuff as well, but that’s what I have planned so far.
