Summary


In many ways, this chapter has been the most difficult. We looked at several APIs, including the Schema API, the Node API, the database API, the Forms API, and the theming system. We implemented many hooks from these APIs.

We moved from installation (with a module install file) to content creation, and on to content viewing. And we moved back and forth from high-level user interface APIs (like FAPI and the theme system) down to the lowest database APIs.

In the end, we created a fully integrated custom content type. In the process, we got a very good view of Drupal's inner workings, learning how to make use of some of the most fundamental APIs.

The next chapter will continue building upon existing knowledge. In that chapter, we will explore some of the advanced features of Drupal's module system.
