Submitted by gvso on Tue, 08/23/2016 - 18:07

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.

We are getting closer to Google Summer of Code final evaluation. Students must start submitting their project in 5 days. During these months, I have been working on a project to harmonize social networking functionality in Drupal. So, it was time to start creating documentation about it. This week, I focus on documentation for site builders.

[Social API] Creating a Social Auth implementer #2 - Routes and Network Plugin

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.


Now that we have let Drupal about our module and its dependencies, it is time to define our routes. In the case of our Social Auth Google module, we'll need the following social_auth_google.routing.yml file

Week 7 is over, and we are working hard to have the Social API project ready before GSoC final evaluation. This week was particularly different from others. In week 7, I focus on many different tasks: from code to documentation and from closing issues to testing patches.
[GSoC 2016: Social API] Week 6: Facebook Widgets Buttons

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.

[GSoC 2016: Social API] Week 5: Checking abstraction of Social Auth

During this last week, Google Summer of Code students must have submitted their midterm evaluation and waited for their mentors' evaluation. During these first weeks, I have been working on the main components of the Social API project. These components are:

  • Social API: contains the basic and generic methods, routing settings, and permissions every Social API sub-module will need
  • Social Auth: implements methods and templates that will be used by login-related modules
  • Social Post: provides methods to allow autoposting to social network’s accounts
  • Social Widgets: allows sub-modules to add functionality to add widgets (like buttons, embedded content) to node, blocks, etc.
