ALPS

ALPS for Drupal Beta

As we have been developing ALPS, CMS integrations have been a must on the list. Building tools is great, but having it available in your CMS of choice makes it easier to adopt. As we started listing the CMSs that wanted to include on our support list, Drupal was near the top. Over the last few months, we have been working with Types & Symbols to develop a base theme for Drupal 7 & 8.

Each CMS has it’s own unique features, and as we worked through the development, we realized a couple things:

  1. With Drupal, your content type can have any number of fields, any names to the fields, and can be configured many different ways. While it gives a site developer lots of flexibility, a single theme can’t keep up with all the options. So we opted to create ALPS for Drupal as a base theme, with support for a sub-theme where the developer can add their customizations.
  2. Additionally, we realized it would be helpful to provide some extensions to the default content type, as well as bundling some views, to make use of some of the extra features in ALPS. This functionality has been added through the use of a helper module, ALPS Drupal Helper, that, once installed, adds extra functionality to ALPS for Drupal.

Share Bugs & Feedback

As this is a beta, we expect there to be questions or even bugs. Please get in touch with us, because we can’t correct problems that we don’t know about. You can create issues on GitHub:

Please indicate what version of Drupal you are using.

We can’t wait to hear how this works for you!

    Are there Any updates? I see no commit in GitHub since September 2017…is the project abandoned?

      I wish I had better news, but unfortunately we didn’t get a lot of interest at the time so development ceased. The theme at is on GitHub is basically done. It was just waiting for some final QA testing and packaging for distribution.

      I would love to see it get used, but right now, we have no plans to upgrade it to ALPS V3.

    Ah – it’s a pity…does it means that using the current “beta” will be also without any support? Are there any users at all? We would love using it.
