A new version for DrupalNews (and why we opened a sandbox for Drupal's culture)

A new version for DrupalNews (and why we opened a sandbox for Drupal's culture)
submitted by: lior
We have been hacking with android and drupal for quite a while but we finally got a chance to give "DrupalNews" some love. Our inspiration for updating the app was based on Johan Falk from nodeone, who built a bunch of RSS feeds which are more fitting to the new github/sandboxed era on drupal.org. This got us back on track integrating the new feeds and rethinking the app. As we played with the app (and reflecting on node one's kitten killers meme) we understood that we need another feed - The culture feed.

Apache solr search in hebrew (and probably arabic) documents in Drupal - PDF problem & solution

Apache solr search in hebrew (and probably arabic) documents in Drupal - PDF problem & solution
submitted by: Shai Weinstein

We recently had a client request to search inside user's uploaded Documents for some online tenders.
Dupal's apachesolr and apachesolr_attachments modules with Apache's solr do the work but we have an exotic language and.. exotic challenges...
When extracting text from the uploaded PDFs - the uploaded Hebrew PDF indexes the words backwards (not being aware to Right To Left text)...

Drupal development site code updates using GIT-Pull

Drupal development site code updates using GIT-Pull
submitted by: Shai Weinstein

We started using GIT SCM for all the new development projects.
GIT's advantages are widely discussed elsewhere- it is fast, efficient, and is a DVCS.
The reason that is important is that it's much faster than SVN and the branching is so easy you don't think about it much as you develop (much less SVN merge drama :) )

The renovation of Machsom Watch

The renovation of Machsom Watch
submitted by: Raz Konforti
One of our favorite client that we are very proud of, and we accompanied from our early days, is www.MachsomWatch.org. Lately we upgraded it from drupal 5.x to drupal 6.x and dressed it with a new beautiful design by Inbal Mizrach. As long with the design, an extreme UI process was made, what made us actually build, almost the entire site from scratch, over the existing content. One of the interesting challenge was to combine the checkpoints content with the daily reports from checkpoints.

Grant points to all comment authors upon tagging the node

Grant points to all comment authors upon tagging the node
submitted by: Raz Konforti
Good content brings good comments with it, and good comments improve the post they are related to, so in a site where users are rewarded for their ideas and contribution, it is just a matter of fairness to let the commenters of a good post to be rewarded as well. In our ideas management system, we want to grant points to each comment author when the post is tagged with a specific term. So far this is impossible with rules.module . In our example, we'll try to grant 1 point when the post is tagged as “Under review”, and 2 points when the post is tagged as “Launched”.

First Drupal site in the Israeli goverment

First Drupal site in the Israeli goverment
submitted by: lior

We're very proud to see the first fruit of several months of work and several year of building the Drupal enterprise eco-system in Israel.
The first site shipped, http://shituf.gov.il is a site which exposes the latest rules and discussions from the government to the public.
That way legislators get a very short feedback loop on the current activity and the public gets to state it's opinion and vote up or down on the stream of new rules and political activity.

Online real-time mapping on drupal sites.
submitted by: royi
In this post I would like to show a way to combine Drupal OSM (open street maps) interface with websockets push technology, in order to allow drupal based sites to work as a real-time online monitor, for real world physical actions. Unless you are already familiar with the terms that I have mentioned so far, you probably don't really understand what I am talking about, so as a prologue I'll elaborate on a few key terms:

A Drupal Ecosystem emerging in Palestine?
submitted by: lior
I'm attending Startup Weekend in TLV which is turning out to be a really great and colorful event. One of the coolest things is that I finally got to meet Tim Cullen which is leading the development of a local Drupal community in Ramalah. I'm a big believer in the epic power of open-source to enable communication where none exists or where barriers (technological or political) might limit communication and innovation. I took ( a low quality and shaky ) video of Tim's presentation.

The new face of Drupal - Bartik

The new face of Drupal - Bartik
submitted by: Tsachi Shlidor

Drupal 7 is going to introduce a lot of improvements, many of them regarding the user experience and user interface. in the past few days one of the greatest (and maybe the last) of these changes was committed - a new core theme, and not just a core theme but a new default theme for Drupal - that means that the mythological Garland, after almost four years, gives way to a new, fresh face for the next Drupal release.
