CTool Plugins and Exportables

CTools has provide two new tools that are great for module developers. CTools Plugins allow for a more robust hook system and exportables helps get configuration out of the database and it to code.

I will review why a module developer should use both of this tools as well as how one use them.

This session will assume you know:

  • how to create modules
  • how to use the drupal hook system
  • some idea on how configuration data is stored in the database.
