Y

Y is a philosophy. It is about:

  • eliminating code, and
  • configuring with external definitions
The YAML Configuration (Y) Drupal module

The Y / YAML configuration module implements the Y philosophy in a very powerful Drupal 7 / YAD7 module.

Y provides a framework for eliminating PHP coding in favor of data-templating combined with a robust plugin framework.

Complex websites can be made with Y rather than using CTools, Views, Features, Page Manager and the multitude of other classic Drupal 7 modules.

This website is a YAD7 / Drupal 7 site built using Version 2 of the Y module. It uses a standard Drupal 7 / YAD7 installation and only 9 contributed modules.
