Jason and I attended a DrupalCon session on a Open Atrium, a drupal distribution for intranets and project management. It’s basically Drupal-based app that competes with 37Signals’ Basecamp/Campfire/Backpack suite. It’s an impressive product which made me think to look up some other Drupal distros that could be of interest. Here’s some of what I’ve found that I want to document here:
Acquia – Base distro. pulls together the more useful contributed modules. We use this for one of our clients.
Open Atrium — Intranet, project management. “Six features — a blog, a wiki, a calendar, a to do list, a shoutbox, and a dashboard to manage it all”
OpenPublish — Online publishing. Used by The New Republic magazine.
Tattler — aggregates/tracks content from resources across the web. (may be interesting for one of our clients)
Drupal Gardens — Not a distro, but SaaS similar to WordPress.com. I think based on Drupal 7. From the looks of it, Drupal 7 is shaping up to be more WordPress-like on the admin side
If you know of others, please add a comment with a link and description.
