Book: Front End Drupal

Front End Drupal explains theming and template design for the Drupal CMS/Framework. To create truly amazing themes, it also introduces the reader to the concepts and structure of a web page generated by Drupal (blocks, regions, menus, form elements and so on) as well as to adding interaction using JavaScript and jQuery.

I co-authored the book with Emma Jane Hogbin. It covers Drupal 6.


Dries Buytaert wrote the foreword for the book:

“Drupal has always been a developer’s platform, even with the many designers in our ranks. It’s about time those designers had a great book. In fact, this book is valuable not just to the designers we have, but to the designers we want…”

“For people who are new to Drupal this is a freaking gem. Don’t think that this is only for newbs though, not at all. This is a serious book, made for grownups. […] Overall, a great book, jam-packed with lots of learning. Congrats to Emma and Konstantin for producing another great book in the Drupal library.”

Victor Kane writes:

“I can’t say enough good things about this book. […] If you are only going to buy two or three Drupal books, make sure this one is always handy while you are working.”

Jeff Eaton, a co-author of Using Drupal writes:

“It’s a great find for anyone who’s looking to understand the pieces and how they fit together.”
