Rubik theme - drupal check for updates screen
Rubik theme - batch API in progress
Shiny theme - batch API in progress

Inspired by the nyan cat pure CSS implementation, I decided to write a module to alter Drupal core's progress bar to use it.

Features include:

  • Nyan cat animation uses pure CSS
  • Includes awesome background audio
  • Tested on (latest) firefox and Chrome, and should work on all webkit based browsers
  • Will work on all Drupal batch API progress bar screens out of the box (including fetching updates and any VBO screens)
  • Simple installation and removal (just enable the module and you are good to go)
  • Comes with audio (mp3 or ogg), and uses HTML5 audio tags to play it
  • Configuration options for the audio, including initial volume and an option to remove it completely

Checking for Drupal updates will never be this exciting ever again.

Tested to work on:

If you have an administration theme that it does not quite work on, or could be better, post a patch in the issue queue.

Installation instructions:

  1. drush dl nyan
  2. drush en nyan -y

There are no external dependencies for this module.


Thank you for this module you've made my millennia. – brantwynn
