A complete guide to practically building a fully functional custom Drupal 7 module from scratch.
In this course you will learn to build a Drupal custom module by completing short tasks and ultimately weave the tasks together to get a completed and fully functional module. Drupal 7 Module Development introduces you to module development by understanding the essential hooks and functions, building tables and querying the Drupal database, exploring module security, performance and how our module interacts with Drupal core and contributed modules. Each video walks you through essential Drupal functions and demonstrates how to use these functions in a module that we build hands-on together Drupal 7 Module Development starts by showing you how to set up your local development environment to support custom module development. You will learn how to use the best tools and configure them. Next you will learn to configure a Feeds importer to import content into your site that you will then leverage with your custom module and write a menu callback using hook_menu and hook_permissions. We will then look at the form API and write a hook_form_alter function and create a .install file and build a db schema function to create a table in our database Finally we create a block using our module and theme the block. We end the course by reviewing our module from a security and performance standpoint. From the local development to the review of security we build a custom module step-by-step throughout the course’s short videos.
