Custom Module Development

Custom module development is the creation of custom plugins or modules for a content management system to add new functions to the site. CMS such as WordPress and Drupal allow programmers to extend or add functionality by building custom modules. Custom modules can perform a simple task, such as adding social media icons to a post; all the way up to complex functionality such as ecommerce – for example WooCommerce is a plugin for WordPress. Drupal in particular has a highly modular design, supplying a basic core framework which is extended depending on the needs of the project by common modules (Drupal Commerce, Views etc.) Any functionality which cannot be achieved with the standard modules can be added by creating a custom module.
