Drupal Modules

Compare Modules

There are many modules that are very similar in function, yet different in usability, workability, and cleanliness of code. It would be nice to be able to create a 'review' which references two different modules, comparing on contrasting both (or more than 2 even).

And thanks yet again for a wonderful site.

Hard to implement.

This is true, but implementing a multi-module review system would basically require rewriting the whole site :)

The simple solution is just to paste in links to the other modules, optionally submitting the same review for each, with the appropriate rating.

similiar / duplicated modules list

It would be good to display similiar / duplicated modules just as a link so the user can discover the differences themselves.

Most of the time, the existence of another module which does a similiar function is not known.

I don't have any issues with duplication, just need to know which modules provide similiar functionality.

Already exists, sort of.

Every module has a list of up to 10 "related modules" displayed on the right side of the page. It's automatically generated by an algorithm I wrote, so the results aren't always perfect, but it does a decent job. The results are recalculated once a week.
