Students' final evaluations is over, and only mentors' evaluations is left. During these months, I have been working on projects to harmonize social networking functionality in Drupal and documenting them. Notwithstanding, the Social API project started as an idea for a framework in fact, the main components provide extensible functionality. Therefore, I documented the process of creating new implementers.

In the last post of this series, we started declaring our module information (social_auth_google.info.yml) and its dependencies through a composer.json file. In this post, we will move on and start working on the routing, settings form, and Settings Manager.

Week 6 is over, and we are already in the second week of the second half of Google Summer of Code 2016. We are working hard to have the Social API project ready to be used widely before GSoC ends. Furthermore, we are trying to already have some implementors, so developers can see sample modules developed on top of the Social API, Social Auth, Social Post, and Social Widgets.
