The good, the bad, and the ugly. 5. April 2012
Von Robert E. Newby - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf

My background encompasses 25+ years of commercial software development, particularly as a principal architect and lead engineer. Re the subject at hand, I have now read roughly 50 percent of this book. Also, I have worked through the corresponding hands-on exercises -- to the extent that I have been able to. The following review is quick and to the point. I may write a more thorough and updated review once I have finished the book...


Drupal 7 Mobile Web Development is packed with valuable knowledge and practical perspectives. For the experienced developer who already has decent familiarity with the basics of Drupal 6 and/or 7, this book introduces and explains important processes and associated tools. It also delivers on its main theme, which is to walk the reader down one of the practical paths for developing Drupal sites that are "responsive" to the differing needs of users of mobile phones, tablet computers, and desktop/laptop computers. In this sense the book is chock full of goodies.

If the problems outlined below did not exist, I would rank it at 4 or 5 stars.


The book fails to address numerous problems setting up and using some of the tools that are employed for the book's hands-on exercises; this is also true of key configuration files. These failures pertain to MAMP PRO setup; configuration of Google's Android Emulator; settings.php; and others.

Second, there is a huge gap between the book's organization and exercises, on the one hand, and its collateral materials on the other. The downloads provided by the author (via github) and those provided by the publisher Packt (via its site) are just plain out-of-sync with the book. This is especially true of the Packt material, which is horrendously organized, outdated with respect to the book itself, and incomplete.

Moreover, the screen captures of Drupal 7 site building modules in action -- and in many cases the book's instructions -- often are not up-to-date with the now-current Drupal 7 release (7.12). This sometimes leads to a good deal of confusion.


It is clear to me that this book was prematurely rushed to press, namely in order for it to be published in time for DrupalCon Denver (March 19-23, 2012). Date-of-publication definitely took priority over quality.

This decidedly is not a book for beginners, particularly given the problems set forth above. For its title to suggest that its audience is beginners is highly misleading.


I can recommend Drupal 7 Mobile Web Development, with qualifications, to experienced Drupal developers.

I cannot recommend it to inexperienced and beginning Druaplists.

A Mobile-focused Drupal Lab 2. Juni 2012
Von Richard J Kucera - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book has very broad coverage of all aspects of drupal implementation of website for mobile devices, including tablets. These are just some first impressions. Drupal site building projects have a way of bringing a lot of technologies to the masses who haven't yet been exposed to them.

I would call it a beginner's book for those who are already experienced in web/drupal or some PHP-based CMS. Experience with PHP is probably required.

Certain things about the book are strong, the explanation of fonts and the history behind that. The chapter on cloud-based deployment is interesting.

I would have replaced the entire MAMP/Cygwin/git for Windows etc chapter with a chapter devoted entirely to setting up a VAGRANT development box with ubuntu/centos and showing all command line examples for Subversion and git. The time of stacks is over... Definitely would have shown some actual PHP/Apache configuration. Explained a little bit about "virtual hosts" and HTTP 1.1 HostName header.

The book contains solid coverage of a lot of front-end issues I haven't covered as a more back-end sys admin/developer-when-I-have-time-which-is-never. I look forward to learning about those areas--flash, media issues, geo, some of the theming and jquery. I would have cautioned to use only latest Display Suite, because early DS does horrendous things to MySQL in a replicated environment where binlogs must suffer what DS does to the global variables table. Have to be careful of DS on our sites especially earlier versions.

I like the Time For Action sections. The "What Just Happened" sections are less interesting, having had a roommate developer who always screamed those words after just having hosed his build.

jQuery mobile, I have to learn. Not looking forward to it. But have to look at it, and this book will be a good intro to that in a drupal context. (edit: 6 months later still haven't touched jquery mobile. mobile is hot though).

My drupal lab is a centos Vagrant box containing varnish-cache, mongodb, redis, custom PHP builds, MySQL config, memcached, lots of similar things. Would like to see MAMP section disappear and be replaced by more such technology.

Rsync was mentioned in the index but I couldn't actually find it. Rsync -av is great, put in an example. Unison feels a bit unstable for production site, I replaced with Rsync...

A very good intro to Mobile Web development with Drupal 7, but not for Drupal beginners 27. Mai 2012
Von Michael Caudy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Despite the 2 negative earlier reviews here on Amazon, I think the book is actually a very good introduction to Mobile Web development on Drupal 7. I think the problem is that the "Beginner's Guide" in the title implies that the book is suitable for Drupal beginner's, which it is not.

However, it is a very good beginner's guide for mobile apps on Drupal 7 for experienced Drupal developers.

Mobile is a huge challenge - and problem - for Drupal and other web frameworks: I think this book actually provides an important overview of what is currently possible using existing Drupal tools, such as how to use the Drupal "services" module to create RESTful web services for a mobile app.

Moreover, the examples using the Drupal "gmap" and "location" modules for creating Google maps and geocoding are very useful for seeing how to practically implement these important features in a Drupal mobile app.

Also, many Drupal users are just beginnig to really use git, and working through the examples and project is a useful excercise. The problem is that there are many necessary basic systems for the development environment that have to be worked out: MAMP, git, etc. These take a lot of time to work through if they are not already familiar, and together they present a huge barrier to people who really are Drupal beginners, as reflected in the earlier reviews.

For more experienced Drupal developers, however, this actually is a an excellent book for learning how to create a fairly sophisticated mobile web application using existing Drupal modules.

If the book could be retitled to remove the "Beginners" from the title, and marketed to an intermediate / experienced Drupal audience, I think it could be quite successful. It can provide an important next step for Mobile Web development using Drupal 7, which is a major goal for the Drupal community.

I am giving this 5 stars, despite the problems created by the misleading title.

Looks like a good overview and roadmap (though the proof will be in the mobile pudding) 1. Juni 2012
Von Drupal Ace - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This is a very timely topic. The web is moving to mobile devices, but Drupal was born for the desk. It's great to see a resource on how to move an existing Drupal site to a mobile format.

I'm working my way through the book and haven't yet put it into practice. I don't expect it will address all of the questions I'll have - no resource ever does, specially in the open-source field - but so far, the content looks promising. The initial section on getting set up for mobile development is helpful for those of us starting out; looks like I'll finally get my feet wet with Drush and other topics I've been curious about.

The bulk of the content may be very useful to mobile development beginners like me, but it's clearly not aimed at Drupal beginners. For a moderately experienced Drupal user like me (lots of regular site dev, little actual coding), it looks like a good combination of things I know and new challenges. The real test will come in seeing how complete the instructions are; too often, books stop short of making things clear. I suspect that'll happen somewhere in this book too, though even if so, the huge number of topics covered offers a good map of things to consider and research when going mobile. (Sections on development for tablets, and use of cloud services? Didn't expect those.)

On a minor note, I like the "What just happened" bit at the end of each section, reviewing what actions were just performed and why. I'd like to see more books do that.

I'll have to withhold final rating until I've developed a mobile site. For now, I'll give a rating based on how useful the book looks as a guide to setting me on the right path.

Not worth it at all. 27. April 2012
Von mmadison - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The chapters in this book cover a lot of material, which at face value is handy. Unfortunately, the material is covered so quickly, that the broader application is barely covered. Even worse, screen shots do not show what is discussed in the text, and there are even times when text describes something in a screen shot incorrectly (specifically in chapter 6, talking about adding a type of field into a view that doesn't actually exist in the content type they create in the screenshot).

There are a ton of good Drupal books out there. This isn't one of them.
