New field types in CiviCRM Entity - Picking the right tool for the job!

CiviCRM Entity is a contributed module for tightly integrating and extending CiviCRM with Drupal. This module exposes CiviCRM API entities as proper Drupal entity types. Making CiviCRM data available as Drupal entities has many advantages, including integration with Rules, Views integration not provided by the CiviCRM core module, Entityreference, among other popular Drupal modules. I’d like to present another advantage of Drupal entity types, and that is Drupal fields.

Peer-to-peer Fundraising

Using Drupal Search and Facet APIs with CiviCRM Data

There are two powerful modules used in the Drupal world for creating fast custom searches. Search API is a framework which provides an interface for site builders to create custom searches on any entity known to Drupal. It supports several search backends, including Apache Solr and native database search. It has a flexible API so developers can easily extend, customize, and alter aspects of the search process.
