Drupal For Facebook and OpenSocial
By alkagupta on Nov 21, 2008
If you are a Drupal user and have been wanting to develop Facebook Applications using Facebook APIs or Facebook Connect, there is Good News. Dave Cohen just released a Drupal for Facebook add-on module for Drupal which allows Drupal sites to integrate with Facebook, and cutting-edge Facebook Applications to be built on top of Drupal. I attended a Drupal meetup yesterday where Dave walked us through how to build Drupal Apps for Facebook and it was very clear that Dave has put in tremdous amount of work and due diligence to make it easy for rest of the community to easily plug into Facebook. Try it out!
Sun is offering Drupal/Open Solaris/Apache/MySQL bundled image on EC2. For details, Pl. click here.
Drupal comunity is further looking for a volunteer to stepup and build a plugin for OpenSocial. Any enthusiasts out there willing to help out? The OpenSocial plugin would enable Drupal developers to build Apps for Orkut, MySpace, Ning, Hi5, Hyves, Friendster, RockYou, SocialSite and all the upcoming OpenSocial Platforms. I am imagining a site that might mashup social data from all these different platforms to build a unified community across them! Cozy!
