Presented by Wolfgang Ziegler Klaus Purer Rules 2 for Drupal 7 is a powerful module that can ease your life as site builder drastically. This session will show best practices, tips & tricks and present how Rules can work together with other modules to gain even more power! In particular, we’ll show what the holy four – rules, views, message & flag – can achieve together! Have you ever heard the sentence “there is a module for that”? Replace it with “there is a rule for that” ;-) The flexibility of Rules with its intelligent data selector widget enables you to access any entity and property in a very fast way (no more PHP eval() like in Rules 1.x). We will show you all the awesome concepts in Rules: Direct input including tokens and the Data Selector Use Rules components and start re-using configurations Make use of loops & lists Learn about recent developments (also including the Google Summer of Code project) Furthermore we show how popular use-cases can be implemented with Rules and build them into regular Drupal modules using Features. Stop coding custom modules, start using the power of Rules & Drupal’s ecosystem! We'll show how one or more of those examples could be built: Editorial workflows Scheduled publishing Notifications In addition, we’ll show how developers can make use of the Rules API and create handy functionality just by writing some basic glue code. Update: You'll can find the slides as wells the presented notification feature module here.
