CTools Plugin Haikus

Friday, 2:15pm - 3:15pm
Coding and Development
Experience Level: 

This session explains / CTools plugins through haiku. / The complex made clear.

CTools offers many ways for site-builders and coders to speed the development process. Using samples from Panels and other plugin-based modules we will look at how to debug existing plugins and build to use cases for writing new plugins.

And there will be haikus, of course. The explanation of access plugins will begin with “Give it a context / and some configuration. / Get back TRUE or FALSE.”

Learning Objectives & Outcomes: 

Session attendees will leave with the confidence to:

  • Open contrib plugin files when building with Panels.
  • Find the single most important function/method in a plugin file.
  • Copy and adapt a contrib plugin for a custom purpose.
