Contribute Your Code on, Part 2: Sandbox Projects

Beginners Guide to Contributing to Drupal : Prerequisites

Welcome to the second part of our series about how to contribute to Drupal.

Previously we covered signing up to Drupal and setting up our account, this time we will guide you in the creation of a new sandbox project. Let's start...

  • Go to and login
  • Find "Your projects" tab, where you can add new projects such as modules and themes.


If you have existing Sandbox projects (modules or themes that are waiting to be approved) or Full Projects (already approved), you will see the "Add a new project" below them.

  • Click on "Add a new project" to create a sandbox project. 


  • Then choose what type of project we are going to make.


The next screens will ask for required information:

  • Name of the project
  • Maintenance status
  • Development status
  • Type a short description of the project


At this point we have the basic details of our sandbox project, and later we can connect to Git.

About Drupal Sun

Drupal Sun is an Evolving Web project. It allows you to:

  • Do full-text search on all the articles in Drupal Planet (thanks to Apache Solr)
  • Facet based on tags, author, or feed
  • Flip through articles quickly (with j/k or arrow keys) to find what you're interested in
  • View the entire article text inline, or in the context of the site where it was created
