I’m currently working on a Drupal 6 theming ebook. The beta ebook attached to this posting is for Drupal 5.
— Update, March 29th, 2008.
I am in the process of writing a 50-and-some pages ebook on Drupal theming. I have an outline and a spiral book full of notes, and lots of sections are already written. My current draft (call that a beta-book) is 15 pages long and if you log in you may download it. I work slowly when it comes to writing. I would absolutely love that ebook to be ready by
next week the end of the month year next year. It’ll be available in a PDF format, and as per my current outline, it should be 50 pages long — but as per my experience, it should be twice as long in the end (my biggest challenge when documenting anything is to be concise). Say, it will be 60 pages long.
Fortunately, the book will be searchable and have a TOC. However, it won’t have an index : indexing in InDesign is quite a task, as one cannot possibly automate the creation of a good index. The ebook will be illustrated. Attached is the cover of the book with its Table of content.
I need your help. I need questions. Send them by e-mail, private messages, or add them as comments to this topic. I have tried to find as many good questions as I could in Drupal’s forums, but I need more. I need hard questions. There’s already decent documentation on theming. I am motivated to write my own because I believe I’ll have a very personal and interesting spin on the whole subject.
April 12th update : Please do not post links to any web site on this page. I am giving a lot of my time — and some of my money (to buy all the fonts used on this web site and in the PDF documents, for instance) — to help people. I am helping people out my own free will, and it’s a pleasure for me. But I won’t offer free advertisement. Please, do not showcase your web site. In your own profile, you can put a link to your business or blog, so that people can look you up. Don’t treat me like a 10 dollar whore. I’m sorry that you had to read this, it’s extremely unlikely that this concerns you, at all.
