I created this graphic because I felt overwhelmed with how many Drupal modules were out there, and I wanted to have a single cheat sheet that I could print out and reference. But this proved to be impossible, and it took me splitting up this massive photo into 5 subsections listed above in order to legibly print out all of the modules -- all of the modules as of November 9th, 2007 that is. (There's been another 20+ new projects created since then according to drupal.org/taxonomy/term/14/0).

 

A couple of technical points: The modules are color coded according to the 30 categories listed here: drupal.org/project/Modules

 

Also this massive graphic actually has repeating modules in the sense that if a module is in three different categories, then it'll be listed 3 different times.

 

There were also 36 projects that weren't categorized and inadvertently left out of this big graphic, but were included in part 5 of the cheat sheet -- along with the project pages that have been created without a release, projects w/ deprecated HEAD or pre-4.7.x releases & CVS namespaces that don't have a current project page.

 

Finally, this listing doesn't take into consideration the fact that many Drupal project releases actually contain multiple modules within them. For example, the Drupal for Facebook module is actually composed of 9 modules.

 

UPDATE: The 30 MB excel file that contains the raw data used to generate these visualizations has been uploaded to scribd.com
