Cred: Custom Drupal Credibility Module
Posted by Jacob Pappe on 06 / 02 / 2008
We have developed a custom Drupal module for a client that I'm really excited about. We are in the process of contributing it to the Drupal community and I wanted to get the word out.
The module is called Cred, and it allows users to create nodes that are then graded by other users. These grades are compiled into a user's Cred Point Average (or CPA), which is displayed on their profile page. We used Jyte as our inspiration for this module. Our goal was to create a fun way for users to create content, spur discussion, and generate reputation all at the same time.
The module is not quite ready for prime time, though it is functional. It uses jQuery to make the voting widget smooth and includes integration with Views. In addition to cleaning up the theme functions, I hope to get around to building in User Points support.
