Suggestions for child modules

2007-07-29: dmitrig01 details some of his ideas regarding the distribution of work between the google_gadgets meta-module and gadgets actually supplying gadget content using the google_gadgets services.

  • In the module's hook_install, the modules supplying additional gadgets set up an fapi-like array, and call google_gadgets_save($gadget)
  • the google_gadgets module stores stuff in the database
  • and it will do menu sstuff for you, including defining callbacks and all that stuff
  • all you have to do is
    • provide output, in which case the module would do absolutely nothing besides having to do with google_gadgets besides the hook_install
    • provide a callback function which returns HTML to display, including a pref api like:
google_gadgets_get_preference()
  • I had a similar idea for several modules
