After DrupalCon Barcelona, I went to visit my family living in Southern California, so I have been out of the loop for a while (still haven't had time to write my conference wrap-up, after an incredible experience there).
I'm very excited, since I'll be leaving for the airport in a couple of hours.
I am so looking forward to my first personal encounter with the Drupal gang, it's really going to be great.
I am proud to be delivering two conferences:
As discussed on g.d.o, over a year ago, in Templates or XSLT: How to structure data transfers and client-side content generation? incorporating a format for data exchange is unresolved in Drupal (no easy array/object to Json and back, no standard array/object to XML and back for easy Ajax-Drupal invokation).
- Don't use a WYSIWYG editor ; since you will probably not be using the Full HTML input format, make sure you use an input format configured to allow the tags used in the code below.
- Create Gliffy drawing at the Gliffy site with your account.
- Make Gliffy drawing public.
- Grab url of the public drawing.
This is a simple jquery + ajax + views based pop-up alarm based on the results of a view consulted by a timed process.
Step 1 - create the view
Create a view having a filter which determines whether or not there are any nodes of the type you are interested in (say, Todo) with a date field "less than or equal to" "now".
