Awesome BADUG meeting

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).

All set for my first DrupalCon ever

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:

Transmitting nodes between Drupal sites

The need

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).

Example of live Gliffy page embedded in a Drupal page

  1. Don't use a WYSIWYG editor Smile; 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.
  2. Create Gliffy drawing at the Gliffy site with your account.
  3. Make Gliffy drawing public.
  4. Grab url of the public drawing.

How to create a pop-up alarm in Drupal based on the results of a view

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".
