we here at wunderkraut (munich) are really into creating good locking and "rich content" demo content. Devel Generate is a nice tool, but the generated content is not presentable to customers.
Because of this, we created a small module, which alters the generated content with our own paragraphs, sentences and images. This was a nice small solution for us, but all configuration is directly done in code and tweaking the code for each project is not the drupal way. Thats why we cannot commit this module in its actual status to the community.
The main functionality of our module is:
- Defining default values for specific fields and field types
- Default values could be sentences, paragraphs, words and files
- Images are loaded from flickr and wiki commons (not coded yet, at the moment images/files are used from a specific folder)
- More!? Which ideas do you have?
Our idea is, to extend the devel_generate with our functionalitys and creating a configurable admin interface for this. Another possibility would be creating a module, which hooks into the devel_generate functionality and fills the fields with user selected values.
What do you think about this?
Is one of the maintainers tomorrow at the code sprint at drupal con munich? I am really interested in a personal conversation about that.
