FantaCycling.com is a multilingual site dedicated to "fantastic cycling prognostics".
Select a team of riders for cycling competitions as Giro, Tour de France and Vuelta, as well as for each of the spring classics.
Each team composes its own jersey, by selecting a name and applying it on one of the vintage jerseys proposed.
Members can follow races, see which rider is the most effective, chat with other online and react to articles of the FantaCycling writers group.
Just for fun!
We needed a multilingual solution allowing entity translation (entity translation), and a way to make complicated calculations of points (using Rules and related modules). Drupal also offers clean and easy collaboration features, from members registration to chat and articles commenting.
Drupal also proposes a bunch of responsive templates, we chose AdaptiveThemes.
This is a project made between friends. Some of them were playiong for years using email and xls sheets.
The goal as to be able to propose something more open to any public into a multilingual website.
With a good knowledge and experience of Drupal, this site was quite straight-forward to build.
I made it in 1 month during my free time, which finally make a good amount of hours!
The most useful features made possible by Drupal:
- Views allows the visualization of every data easily
- Entity translation allowed to avoid maintaining points among different language version of a rider or of a team,
- Feeds, in combination with views and entity reference, allowed for easy import of thousand of riders
- Charts and Views calc will allow to visualise data in a fancy way.
None. Everything was there already.
