A very handy extension to Features, and becoming more robust. I've already found it useful on a few client's sites. I particularly like the ability to export Blocks.

Super (when it works).

To get the dependency version right this worked:
# drush dl simplehtmldom-7.x-1.12
# drush en simplehtmldom
# drush en devel_themer

The last step will download devel_themer and will see the simplehtmldom as forced above. Otherwise it will (at the time of writing) download simplehtmldom 7.x-2.1, which fails.

Public WWW users can only see some parts of the module in operation at this demonstration page, or choose 'm00' form the Navigation menu at http://drupal7demo.webel.com.au/module/m00. There are some various unthemed and themed stub pages with associated tabs and/or nested menu items.

Getting the Grammar Parser library installed and seen by the system can be tricky. For instructions on compatible versions please visit Grammar Parser Library [bridge].

The API documentation extraction module is used on this site for the OOE API documentation for the OOE = Object Oriented Examples = One Of Each object-oriented tutorial module.

[module] X Autoload

I consider this module important (indeed a "god-send" for OO fans), because it enables preparation of Drupal7 modules in anticipation of the class/namespace techniques required for Drupal8. It is used by the module OOE = Object Oriented Examples = One Of Each.

As of (at least) Jun 2014, X Autoload supports the following patterns:

D8-style PSR-4

[module] Current posts - module code for tutorial

The well-known tutorial Creating modules - a tutorial: Drupal 7.x is fine for a very first introduction, but I don't recommend that you code that way when you are working with the OOE system because the code does not respect the Don't Repeat Yourself (DRY Principle), it is far too Write Everything Twice (WET) (because "we enjoy typing").
