Making mobile sites with Drupal blogs You are reading a technology blog on development of mobile sites, and integration with Drupal. Check out the Mobile version of this site! en Mobile usages for Drupal <p>Someone directed me to the following blog post, illustrating a cool use case for Drupal in a mobile context. Read it on <a href="http://realize.be/mobile-uploads-your-drupal-site">http://realize.be/mobile-uploads-your-drupal-site</a><br /> The blog shortly explains how you can use <a href="http://www.drupal.org">Drupal</a> together with the <a href="http://drupal.org/project/mailhandler">Mailhandler</a> and <a href="http://drupal.org/project/mailsave">Mailsave</a> modules to update your Drupal image galleries through a mobile phone (e.g. iPhone).</p> <p><a href="http://www.mobiledrupal.com/content/mobile-usages-drupal" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.mobiledrupal.com/content/mobile-usages-drupal#comments drupal facebook images iPhone mobile Wed, 21 Jan 2009 18:49:47 +0000 Tom 26 at http://www.mobiledrupal.com new Mobile Device Detection module for Drupal <p>I have published a new Drupal module, allowing you to handle the redirection of users to your mobile site.</p> <p>You can find the module and documentation <a href="/content/mobile-device-detection-module">here </a></p> <p>The module allows you to check what client is visiting your site and display a message with the url of the mobile site, or does an automatic redirection to that site.</p> <p>The module also gives you a session variable $_SESSION['mobile'] that holds a boolean indicating if the client is a mobile device.</p> <p><a href="http://www.mobiledrupal.com/content/new-mobile-device-detection-module-drupal" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.mobiledrupal.com/content/new-mobile-device-detection-module-drupal#comments development drupal mobile Sun, 18 Jan 2009 15:40:04 +0000 Tom 24 at http://www.mobiledrupal.com Make your Drupal blog mobile! <p>This is my first post in a series of tutorials illustrating how the open source <A HREF="http://open.siruna.com/" onClick="javascript: pageTracker._trackPageview('/outgoing/blog/open.siruna');" >Siruna</a> software can help you in making your website mobile. The goal is not to create a mobile site from scratch, but to repurpose your existing sites for display on mobile devices. The advantage is that you do not lose time by creating a complete new mobile theme, and Siruna assists in making some usability choices.<br /> <a href="http://www.drupal.com">Drupal</a> is currently not aware of mobile devices and delivers a very bad "out-of-the-box" solution to serve these devices. At the other hand, <a href="http://www.drupal.com">Drupal</a> is very suited for mobile transformations because of the well structured theming.</p> <p><a href="http://www.mobiledrupal.com/content/make-your-drupal-blog-mobile" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.mobiledrupal.com/content/make-your-drupal-blog-mobile#comments blog development drupal mobile siruna tutorial Sun, 11 Jan 2009 23:15:21 +0000 Tom 14 at http://www.mobiledrupal.com Predictions for 2009 <p><span class="inline inline-right"><img src="http://mobiledrupal.com/sites/default/files/images/2009_0.jpg" alt="2009small" title="2009small" class="image image-_original " width="189" height="112" /></span>At the end of the year I always feel the urge to look up the predictions for the coming year... Personally I feel that the mobile web is finally coming... No seriously, we are at a tipping point where consumers (professionals are already there) are finding their way to mobile internet. Of course, reasons are new (cool) devices, new (user-friendly) applications and the urge of always-on connectivity induced by the <a href="http://www.facebook.com">Facebooks</a> and <a href="http://www.netlog.com">Netlogs</a> of this world.</p> <p><a href="http://www.mobiledrupal.com/content/predictions-2009" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.mobiledrupal.com/content/predictions-2009#comments 2009 mobile trends Mon, 15 Dec 2008 22:05:32 +0000 Tom 10 at http://www.mobiledrupal.com Start of a new technical blog <p>Welcome to this new Blog dealing about mobility and more specific Mobile Drupal. The blog will publish the result of one of my current consulting jobs, involving the creation of a set of tools for helping Drupal developers in making their sites mobile. The blog is an attempt to deliver a very practical approach in making mobile sites and gather some feedback from the community. I hope you won't mind that during my discourse, I will have a natural preference for using <a href="http://open.siruna.com">Siruna</a> as an adaptation service... But more on this later.</p> <p>Currently mobile presence gets more and more attention, and the predictions are very positive ... e.g. <a href="http://www.gartner.com/it/page.jsp?id=754112">Smartphone growth according Gartner</a>, but still data subscribers are not yet booming...</p> <p><a href="http://www.mobiledrupal.com/content/start-new-technical-blog" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.mobiledrupal.com/content/start-new-technical-blog#comments development mobile siruna Wed, 10 Dec 2008 20:52:27 +0000 Tom 9 at http://www.mobiledrupal.com
