Best Interesting Website Built With Drupal

Long Name: 
Best Interesting/Miscellaneous Website Built With Drupal

Nominees for Best Interesting Website Built With Drupal is a catch-all for Drupal websites that do not fit in another category. It might be truly-bizarre, off-the-wall or just plain fun.

QLD Floods

This is not an example of technical finesse. This site IS a great example of how Drupal can solve real problems. This site started as a side project to test Drupal 7 a few days after it had been released and 24hrs after the site launched had 1M+ hits. It demonstrated the power and scalability of the latest release, when very few projects had even started.

Drupal Sun

Drupal Sun was inspired by the way tools like Google Reader and Feedly take feeds and make them easy to read. In brief, Drupal Sun allows you to:
  • Do full-text search on all the articles in Drupal Planet (thanks to Apache Solr)
  • Facet based on tags, author, or feed
  • Flip through articles quickly (with j/k or arrow keys) to find what you're interested in
  • View the entire article text inline, or in the context of the site where it was created is an information website promoting responsive and mobile first web design to a business audience.

Whether we’re ready or not, having a mobile-friendly site is becoming essential. Responsive Design is almost a tired keyword in the web design community, but in the business community, there are few people who really understand what it means how it changes the way websites are built. help explain the benefits without all the technical jargon.



Fotobout is a daily competition where Amazee Labs' Interaction Designer Andrew McClintock and Head Technology Michael Schmid square off to post the better photograph. And are judged by the visiting public. By sharing or simply "FOTE-ing" for their favorite photo, to win the round. Every 24 hours a new round begins and the results of the previous are revealed.

The site was built in Michael Schmid's, Andrew McClintock's & Kathryn Cornelius' spare time on Drupal 7.

In Honor of the People

In Honor of the People is a first step toward a virtual reunification of American Indian-made objects held at multiple institutions.

Episcopalian missionary Henry Whipple collected hundreds of cultural objects. Phase I of this project brings together nearly 500 items from the Science Museum of Minnesota and the Minnesota Historical Society.

We look forward to future submissions from individuals, libraries, and museums around the world.
