A node as an editable block

I want to create a edit node into a block with ajax submit.

I wanted to try panels 2 minipanel with a node%/edit override together. But some hour later ... nothing found yet.

This raw view may be handy: http://drupal.org/node/48816

But why not using some php? Below is a raw version


<?php
global $user;

$sql = "select nid from {node} where uid == %d";
$result = db_query( db_rewrite_sql( $sql), $user->uid);
$row = db_fetch_array( $result);

if( isset( $row) && isset( $row['nid']){
$node = node_load( 30);
print drupal_get_form($node->type .'_node_form', $node);
}

graphviz or hypergraph

Dependency graph
When making these images about modules i use graphviz to render them. But just ran into http://drupal.org/project/hypergraph which looks great. So I have to study this one! Commands to render a .dot file are ie with non overlapping nodes
neato -Goverlap=false -o my.neato.png -T png my.dot
or for a top down graph.
dot -T png -o my.dot.png my.dot
The attached image is an installation with the jstools, cck, views, drush, og in order to get faster user experiences. View the full image

In search of modules for faster user experience

What modules does one need to get faster user experience? This probably leads to using ajax.

One of my thought is some node/%/edit's one one page. Preferably on tabs too!

Just browsing the categories http://drupal.org/project/Modules/category/101 (javascript utilities) and content at http://drupal.org is still overwhelming.

Here is a listing with just some modules.
- http://drupal.org/project/ajaxtable
- http://drupal.org/project/autosave
- http://drupal.org/project/block_refresh
- http://drupal.org/project/compact_forms

My drush usage

Using drush with a strict server design makes my drupal maintence much more relaxed. I have this tiny script as a runner for drush.

$ cat drush
