About the Rules Ecosystem

Day:  Tuesday, 24. august 2010
Time:  10:00-10:50
45 minutes (+15 minutes Q&A)



We'll present Rules 2 (project) and accompanying developments for Drupal 7, in particular covering new features, introducing Rules web for the rule-based interaction with remote systems, and presenting the outcome of the two rules based Google summer of code projects (more about SoC). Furthermore we'll take a look at what Rules 2 and its foundation, the Entity Metadata module, provides for developers. We'll see how modules may provide Rules integration as well as how the shiny new API can be leveraged to re-use rules, the modules UI, or some of its components only.


  • Rules in Drupal 7 (Entities, Data selectors, New UI, ..)
  • Rules 2 for developers (providing Rules integration + ways to leverage the Rules API)
  • Introducing Rules Web (Rule-based service invocation, Reacting on remote-Drupal-events)
  • Rules Summer of Code Projects (Rules Optimization Project (project), Rules Transformers (project))
  • Outlook

Also don't miss Johan Falk's session about using Rules (1.x) with Drupal 6 for rapid site development.
