May was another good month both in terms of information shared and turn out. We quickly got started with introductions and sharing of cool/new modules which included:
- News that someone is looking to make Sean’s Meetup Events module and the Drupal Groups infrastructure work together
- Maillog / Mail Developer provides an easy possibility to log all Mails for debugging purposes. It’s possible to prevent the mails to being sent, so there is no need for an extra mail server to test the mail functionality of other modules or the drupal core.
- Module Instructions shows the content of README.txt and INSTALL.txt files for contrib modules, linked off the modules administration page.
Ben then proceded to introduce everyone to Drush, the command line tool that everyone should be using for Drupal work. He gave an overview presentation and followed up with a live interactive demonstration, stepping through key functions like module downloads and installation and using core commands like site-install.
There was significant agreement on having another Play Day soon, so Saturday June 9th will be the next one. Be sure to RSVP on the Meetup event, and perhaps share what you will be working on or hope to have a conversation about.
The next meetup will be a Show and Tell meeting held on Thursday June 14th, 6:00pm – 8:00pm. Check out the Meetup event page for more details.
