Sector Guide

The Sector guide provides step-by-step guidance for your Sector Projects.

Drupal modules included in Sector

The Sector distribution includes the latest stable Drupal core, a selection of Drupal custom modules and tailored custom modules by Sparks Interactive. 

Current releases 

A full list of Drupal contributed modules in included in the Sector distribution can be seen on Drupal.org

Included projects 

Drupal modules come in all shapes and sizes - smaller projects like Anchor Link solve very specific use cases while large scale projects like Display Suite allow sitebuilders to take control over displays and change the way Drupal websites are built. So, rather than listing all modules on this page, we concentrate on the larger projects. 

Display Suite

The powerful framework Display Suite allows sitebuilders to take control over the display of their content using the AdminUI. 

Media

The Media module suite provides an advanced media library and file management system integrated into the CMS workflow. It allows searches in the file library and advanced metadata management, as well as usage statistics for files, images, audio, and video.

Media has undergone some major changes in Drupal 8 - read more in our Sector D8 roadmap

Bootstrap 

The responsive, mobile-friendly Sector starter theme is based on the Drupal Bootstrap theme and takes full advantage of the Bootstrap HTML, CSS, and JS framework.

Included developer tools

Chaos tool suite (ctools)

The ctools module suite is primarily a set of APIs and tools to improve the developer experience.

Devel

The Devel module suite provides a series of tools for debugging - for both developers and themers. 

Smaller projects we could not do without

Extra security for content editors is provided by:

The Drupal Administration User Interface (AdminUI) is improved by:

  • Admin Toolbar, which transforms the Administration menu (menu bar on the top) into a drop-down menu to shorten pathways
  • LinkIT, which makes it easy to add links and keeps your internal links up-to-date when content is moved around
  • Rabbit Hole, which allows sitebuilders to control entity references

Open Source award winner!

Sparks Interactive are delighted to accept the Open Source Use in Business award for Sector and the Sector.nz open source platform
