Creating Learning Management Systems with Drupal

Online learning is a burgeoning sector of the web development space. There are two factors driving this trend are the need for organizations.

Athletic-Minded Traveler

The Athletic-Minded Traveler (AMT) started in 2005 with the release of a best selling travel guidebook that focused on hotels across North America. Today, AMT has a website that takes the guesswork out of exercising and eating well on the road. Understanding the quality of work out facilities has always been a challenge. Often times you will see a hotel’s website touting that they have a “state of the art” gym but in reality, it turns out to be a small room with just a few work out machines. After researching and visiting thousands of facilities around the world, they have shared the best places for healthy-minded individuals to stay, workout, eat, purchase gear, and have fun traveling in their destination city.

CiviCRM Entity 2.0-beta-11 Released - Admin config page

Today, Skvare has released a new version of CiviCRM Entity, 2.0-beta11.  This release contains a new feature, an admin configuration page which allows site administrators to disable exposure of entity types to Drupal.

CiviCRM Entity is a Drupal module which exposed CiviCRM API entity types as native Drupal entity types, providing Views, Rules, Entity Reference field integration, and Drupal native pages and forms for each. It supports both CiviCRM 4.6 LTS and CiviCRM 4.7.

Developing with CiviCRM Entity and the Drupal API

If you are a Drupal developer coming new to CiviCRM, it can be a bit of a "culture shock" to realize that CiviCRM is not your typical Drupal module.​ CiviCRM Entity can help a Drupal developer make the transition by enabling them to use some of the standard Drupal API features they have grown accustomed to, while still providing insight into the data structures and interconnections of CiviCRM.

Our Open-Source Tool Belt

At Skvare, we love using open-source software that comes with a great deal of functionality right of the box. Because open-source software is crowd-sourced, its major benefits are flexibility, security, and cost effectiveness. Unlike proprietary software, open-source software can be altered and extended by anyone, meaning if the tools doesn’t already do exactly what you want it to do, you can change it. This also allows you to leverage features that other developers have already created. Take a peak out the open-source tools we could not live without.

Using the CiviCRM Entity Reference Field submodule with Inline Entity Form

CiviCRM Entity Reference Field is a submodule of the CiviCRM Entity project, which tightly integrates CiviCRM data into Drupal by exposing API entities as Drupal entity types. One of the many advantages of installing the CiviCRM Entity module is the ability to use Drupal’s Entity Reference module to reference CiviCRM data from nodes, terms, or other entity types. Many people are using the Inline Entity Form module, which provides field widgets that allow creating, editing, or deleting referenced entity from the parent form.
