SMS integration

SMS Framework module is quite mature.

D8 Mobile Initiative

Enhance Bartik for mobile. Perhaps use Omega as base theme. Zen5 has ideas as well.

We want a shining model of responsive design and how to do mobile in Drupal

An alternative is to do Snowman install profile which works on Mobile?

Jquery Mobile in core. Now at 1.0b2.

Enhance Seven for mobile (low priority IMO)

Use smaller image derivative when in mobile mode.

Content creation/editing

Native app like Joomla, Wordpress, etc?

Would be nice, but has never succeeded with non web development. Probably better done by 3rd party.

JB: I think we'd succeed with an open source skeleton that does node get/put, user auth, (maybe SSL), and defined ways to extend it. It may take cash to prime the pump to get this built, but once available, I think it grows on its own.

jb: Does it make this easier to think of this really as just Drupal emitting HTML5 as an "app"?

jb: d.o would need to be equipped to distribute apps, or just the skeleton.

Device detection.

Has fallen out of favor since responsive gained mindshare. Still needed for image scaling

RESTful services in core (covered by webservices initiative)

Break long words when in mobile mode (context sensitive output filters - ouch). or javascript

OAuth in core (low priority IMO)

jb: Distinguish between phone-mobile and pad-mobile.

JB: User experience expectations are different


Make Gardens theme(s) for mobile. And/or integrate Mobify

Create curriculum around mobile and Drupal

Sponsor documentation and code sprints around mobile

Explore commercial partnership with Akamai (or other service providers)

Mobile theme for Acquia Drupal

Native app for Gardens/Commons content admin

Done: Mobify partnership for Hosting customers - keep improving Mobile friendliness

Done: One of (3) Commons themes is mobile-friendly is mobile friendly

tgeller: Sponsor/support distribution optimized for mobile? Not sure who'd do it (if not us), but it seems inevitable.

Possible next steps

Prepare a sheet/document for the sales team at Acquia

Write a marketing whitepaper that can be distributed on

tgeller: Good idea! Added to the Marcom backlog at
