Have you ever found yourself doing the same installation process again and again? Maybe installing Drupal multiple times to create different projects, testing reviewing patches in Drupal, or testing new features in a fresh install?
You might want to look into creating an Install Profile. It can remove the repetitive tasks for downloading modules, installing and configuring variables.
Below I will show you how to create an Install Profile in 3 easy steps!
In overview, we will create 3 files:
The CTAR is an Augmented Reality application that allows you to find nearby train and bus stops and their estimated times of arrival.
Just point your phone in your direction of travel and stops will appear. This is your reality, augmented.
Each stop box gives displays the distance to the station, station's name, color of lines passing through, ETAs of trains in all directions, and allows you to tap whichever particular line you are interested in within a station.
Not everyone takes the bus or the train for that matter, so...
MongoDB is a NoSQL database system that stores structured data as JSON-esque documents with dynamic schemas.
This makes for data integration on some apps much easier and faster.
In Drupal, there is a suite of modules that allow for developers and site builders to take advantage of this document storage system for things like field storage, block configuration, caching, watchdog (logging) and more.
Today we're going to look at setting up MongoDB and configuring Drupal to use the mongodb_field_storage module.
This requires the latest version of Drupal as well as...
OSX Preference panes can work like MAMP for starting and stopping Apache and MySQL.
It takes about 30 minutes to run through these steps to config PHP, Apache, MySQL, MongoDB & PHP on Mac OSX 10.7.
Also included are some quick configs to get XDebug, XHProf and APC running on your new Lion install.
This is an alternative to installing MAMP.
We will use Xcode and Homebrew to get many things done for this config.
We're going to use the System Preferences to turn on Apache. Then we'll jump into our terminal and set up Lion for local web development.

Creating a Multilingual Site With Drupal
Drupal is an incredibly robust CMS without limits that is being improved and expanded upon daily. Having a content management system allows you to save time on development and spend more time creating valuable content for your users. Using a CMS allows you to allocate your time and money more efficiently. The majority of Drupal websites, like any other sites, currently are built in the English language. Drupal however has the flexibility that allows it to create and translate sites into other languages.

Drupal and SEO
The appearance of your web properties provides the very first impression of your business and brand to new visitors. This impression can generate leads, bring in new business, and promote word-of-mouth referrals as well as brand loyalty. The only problem is the fact that a good looking site alone will not automatically bring you visitors. You need to be sitting on the first page of the search engines to get any type of targeted traffic. This is exactly why web designers and marketing professionals use search optimization. Specifically, they use...
