Drupal City map created with Drupal module names
Let us invite you to an imaginary city that follows the Drupal Way! ;) Using the names of real Drupal modules, themes, and distributions, we at WishDesk team created the Drupal City map. Today we celebrate Drupal’s 18th birthday, so it’s a great opportunity to invite you there!
The idea and mission of Drupal City map
The world of Drupal modules is incredibly interesting, and we decided to show it to everyone. Our Drupal Map is much more than entertainment. It is meant to promote Drupal and give inspiration to developers, users, and customers.
And, of course, Drupal City will let anyone learn Drupal modules in a cheery and engaging way. You can click on the module images, see their brief descriptions, and visit their pages on drupal.org (then click again to close). Here and there, we also left little hints as to how these modules work. So the Drupal City map contributes to Drupal education.
Welcome to Drupal City!
Just look around the Drupal City — it has everything you can imagine. You could walk along the Commerce CCAvenue, turn to the Beale Street, pass the Simple Columns and reach the Beach and the Sea, from which flows a mighty River of Tweets leading to the Waterfall Views.
It is possible to have a chat at the sociable Sticky Sharrre Bar, take a ride on the Owl Carousel, get some calories for Drupal ideas at the local Restaurant or Bakery, and lose extra calories in YG Fitness Gym.
You could also admire the Christmas Lights at the Commerce Square, visit the Open Church, and replenish your skills at the Library. And this is just the beginning!
The choice of modules for Drupal City
It was amazing to see how all these modules, themes, and distributions fit into the Drupal map like in a puzzle.
Some module names matched their map objects exactly, while for others we used a little wordplay. For example, the Commerce Square module does integration with the Square payment service — and it is a beautiful city square on the Drupal map. It makes the map even more interesting!
Drupal has so many fabulous modules that at some moments it was hard to choose between them. There were multiple awesome modules for particular objects — for example, carousels or fields. With real hard decisions to make, we chose the modules whose names better fit the map concept.
If you would like to see other Drupal modules, themes, or distributions on the Drupal City map, you are welcome to share your ideas, and we will consider adding them. Drupal City is truly welcoming, and it belongs to the Drupal world.
See you in Drupal City! It’s just an awesome little place on the Drupal Planet ;)
