Another 5 Drupal resources you might have missed
When classic Drupal-sites like GotDrupal, YadaDrop, NodeOne and DrupalDude aren't updating their Drupal resource sites and/or pages anymore, there are always new sites around the corner to help you in your Drupal quest. I've listed 5 of them earlier, and here's five more...
If you find the information for the different modules on drupal.org too long and hard to get a grip on, ModuleNotes might ease your pain. Written by users for users, in plain English - "this is what this module do, and it's awesome!".
Do you have a bunch of Drupal sites out there? Tired of getting email messages whenever there's an update available? A rather new, and free, way of keeping track is Drupalstatus.org. Through a module you connect your site to Drupalstatus and get an overview, and a weekly summary of what modules you should update, security information and such. Came along when Droptor was on the slope, and became the savior for all of us who looked for an alternative. (See related post here.)
Slightly older and not so updated anymore, but it still holds a lot of information and tips and tricks. Hundreds of knowledge snippets, sorted into different categories makes this a good place to collect good information about Drupal - at least for a couple of years.
If you're an avid Drupal developer or just building one site, one time there's a lot to gain of using Drush. Drush is a bunch of terminal commands that speeds up development and/or theming Drupal. It's like an AddOn-pack for your favourite boardgame. With Drush, your terminal usage will increase but you will also spare a lot development time. Just clearing cache is a dream in Drush, and with that you can skip opening up the Performance page and clicking the button to clear your cache. Anyway, DrushCommands.com offers a comprehensive list of all different versions of Drush available to us as users and which commands that works in which version. Great to have around if you want to start using - or improve your usage of - Drush.
"I've never heard of this Drupal, I don't like, I don't think anything is built with that Durpel thingamabob..." Ever heard something like that from a client, a friend (ex-friend!) or other. Well, if you want to stick it to them, and show them that there are many beautiful, clever and useful sites out there, running on Drupal - DrupalShowcase is a great way to start. Thousands of Drupal-sites are listed here - and you can easily add your own!
