Building Mobile Apps by Example


Have you ever thought about building a mobile application for your Drupal website? In this session we'll build two simple example mobile applications, and you'll walk away with the tools needed to build your own mobile application for a Drupal website.

Both apps will utilize a Drupal 7 website, and DrupalGap, which is an open source mobile application development kit for Drupal. With these tools, developers can create custom mobile applications (for iOS, Android, other) for their Drupal websites.

Demo Site


Example #1 - GeoTag a Photo

This app will allow us to take a photograph and save it onto a Drupal website. It will also record our current location to "GeoTag" the photo.

Example #2 - Get Nearby Locations

This app will allow us to retrieve and display nearby locations stored within the Drupal website. For this example our current location will be:

1201 South Figueroa Street
Los Angeles, CA 90015

Our nearby examples will include the following locations:


We'll also cover what Drupal 8 has in store for mobile application development.
