Distribution specific practices/requirements

December 12th, 2014: This page is under review and being considered for adoption. See https://www.drupal.org/node/2153139 for more information.

Distributions have many of the same processes and standards as regular projects, with some specific differences:

How to use the Resource Conflict module when creating a Course Schedule

Use case: I wanted to create a Course Schedule, where the user (faculty member) can select a number of Courses from a schedule.
If any of the selected courses are scheduled with conflicting dates, then an error message will be displayed to the user, indicating which of the Courses contain conflicts.

RESTful module - Best practices

The RESTful module achieves a practical RESTful for Drupal following best practices.

Further documentation and examples can be found at the RESTful module wiki.


The following also describes the difference between other modules such as RestWs and Services Entity.

Google Map Field

This module allows content creators/maintainers to add maps to content via
the addition of a "Google Map Field" field type that can be added to content

Using the Google Map Field, the user can drop a marker on a map, set the
width, height and zoom factor of the map and save the data for the map
with the node.
