What to do if an article hasn't been translated?

An update on Drupal Searching

At OSCMS Robert Douglas and I co-presented our independent work on Drupal searching. Robert gave an overview of how core search works and I presented a few modules built for searching with improved performance and usability. Since that time, we have collaborated and made improvements. This session will start with a demonstration of what was presented at OSCMS -- a site built with views and views_filterblock.

I'll talk about Coding Standards and I will demonstrate how to use coder to make your module coding standards compliant. I'll talk about the 6.x API changes and demonstrate how to use coder to upgrade your module from Drupal 5.x to 6.x.

Schema API

Introduced in Drupal 6, the Schema API allows modules to declare their database tables in a structured array (similar to the Form API) and provides API functions for creating, dropping, and changing tables, columns, keys, and indexes. This session will cover:

  • the rationale, design, and benefits of the Schema API and data structure,
  • how modules should use the Schema API to create tables,
  • how to integrate the Schema API with the module update mechanism (hook_update_N), and
  • future directions and goals for Schema API and related functionality.
