GSoC’19 Coding period | Week #1 | Drupal

The Coding phase of Google Summer of Code 2019 kicked off the previous week on May 27th. I was very excited to work on my project Collaborative Editors. This module provides the features to edit and update a node in Real Time similar to Google Docs. It comes with several plugins and add-on which allow users to directly publish the content from Etherpad, Google Docs and Microsoft Office 365 live editor.

Introduction to Drupal 8 API

API stands for application program interface. It is a piece of code that allows another piece of code to interact with your Drupal site. in simple words, it allows a third-party application to interact with our Drupal site without human interaction.

Using Etherpad - a collaborative text editor, in Drupal

Etherpad allows you to edit documents collaboratively in real-time, much like a live multiplayer editor e.g Google Docs that runs in your browser. Write articles, press releases, etc. together with your friends, fellow students or colleagues, all working on the same node at the same time. Write articles, press releases, etc. together with your friends, fellow students or colleagues, all working on the same node at the same time. All instances provide access to all data through a well-documented API and support import/export to many major data exchange formats. And there are tons of plugins that allow you to customize your instance to suit your needs.
