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:
- 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.
- 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.
Take a look at the 2 demo sites and see what can be done:
