Apps Powered by Your Drupal Website

Jul 01, 2015 | Cameron | Android, iOS, Web Development, Drupal | 3 Comments


Drupal is a great platform that we prefer to use when building websites due to the ease of use and availability of some great open source plug-ins (modules). They allow user accounts, content management of all kinds, and can be really easy to manage and maintain. Wouldn't it be nice if you could turn your website with all of your content and users into a nice mobile app?

Enter DrupalGap.

DrupalGap is an open source application development kit for drupal websites that allows you to do just that. Powered by Phonegap, a tool used to make multiplatform apps from HTML, CSS, and javascript, DrupalGap connects to your Drupal website and enables you to make a fully functional mobile app. Click here to checkout our first DrupalGap powered mobile app on the Google Play store.

Like Drupal, DrupalGap allows you to have user permissions, custom modules, regions, and blocks which are easily configured with a little bit of javascript. However, this development kit is still fairly new so if you plan to create an app this way, expect to get your hands dirty with a little manual coding. While there are some custom modules already available for download, we found some of them to be buggy or not function properly. For example, we've been unsuccessful so far in trying to get the Facebook module to successfully let us log in. 

There is a Github repository available for the project if you'd like to contribute, otherwise the creators over at EasyStreet3 can help you develop your project for $130/hr.

Still, as it is we've found DrupalGap to be extremely powerful and full of potential. If you've got yourself a Drupal powered website, definitely be sure to check it out.
