The SN Quick Field Delete module allows site admin to delete multiple fields simultaneously in quick and efficient manner on 'Manage field' page.
Sand Box Link : https://drupal.org/sandbox/gaurav.pahuja/2081279
Git Repository : http://git.drupal.org/sandbox/gaurav.pahuja/2081279.git

Motivation for writing this module came while deleting multiple fields (around 35) for a particular content type which is quite cumbersome process.

Good morning gaurav.pahuja,

please include:

  • detailed information on how to clone your module, not just a git link
  • Do some reviews of other modules and include them here. It will help your application to be reviewed quicker
  • The module itself looks too short to be reviewed, check the Project application checklist: https://drupal.org/node/1587704

Apart from that, the module itself has some things to correct to follow the coding standars:

The ideea for this module is good.
I tested and it's a problem with the article node type. With other content types works fine.

Fatal error: Function name must be a string in ..\modules\field_ui\field_ui.admin.inc on line 154

As a suggestion: you can put a confirmation page when you delete some fields.

Hi @gaurav.pahua,

please mention the hook type in comment for function "sn_quick_field_delete_form_field_ui_field_overview_form_alter" i.e. hook_form_FORM_ID_alter().

Also mention the in the comment that function "sn_quick_field_delete_multi_delete_submit" is a submit handler for the which form so that whoever view the code, get it easily.

urwen, SanduCiprian & joshi.rohit100,

All review comments have been incorporated. Please review.

Multiple Applications
It appears that there have been multiple project applications opened under your username:

Project 1: https://drupal.org/node/2083109

Project 2: https://drupal.org/node/2070535

As successful completion of the project application process results in the applicant being granted the 'Create Full Projects' permission, there is no need to take multiple applications through the process. Once the first application has been successfully approved, then the applicant can promote other projects without review. Because of this, posting multiple applications is not necessary, and results in additional workload for reviewers ... which in turn results in longer wait times for everyone in the queue. With this in mind, your secondary applications have been marked as 'closed(duplicate)', with only one application left open (chosen at random).

If you prefer that we proceed through this review process with a different application than the one which was left open, then feel free to close the 'open' application as a duplicate, and re-open one of the project applications which had been closed.

I'm a robot and this is an automated message from Project Applications Scraper.

We are currently quite busy with all the project applications and we prefer projects with a review bonus. Please help reviewing and put yourself on the high priority list, then we will take a look at your project right away :-)

Also, you should get your friends, colleagues or other community members involved to review this application. Let them go through the review checklist and post a comment that sets this issue to "needs work" (they found some problems with the project) or "reviewed & tested by the community" (they found no major flaws).

Hey Gaurav,

I couldn't find any release blockers however a few points to note.

function sn_quick_field_delete_form_field_ui_field_overview_form_alter, why are you including the form_id argument?

In your form submit function, line 94 you're using field_purge_batch with a static argument. What happens if the number of deleted field records are larger than the static value?

Cheers,

Hi,

First review comment incorporated.
field_purge_batch just purges a batch of deleted Field API data and it should have a low batch limit.

From its documentation

/**
* Purges a batch of deleted Field API data, instances, or fields.
*
* This function will purge deleted field data in batches. The batch size
* is defined as an argument to the function, and once each batch is finished,
* it continues with the next batch until all have completed. If a deleted field
* instance with no remaining data records is found, the instance itself will
* be purged. If a deleted field with no remaining field instances is found, the
* field itself will be purged.
*
* @param $batch_size
* The maximum number of field data records to purge before returning.

Hi gaurav.pahuja!

I had a look at this project, here is a list of my findings.

- If the module "field_groups" is in use, the field-list-table gets corrupted as you can see on the attached screenshot. Deleting still works perfectly, but as this problem is frequently used, you should consider searching for a solution to this display-issue.

- Way more important: There has to be any kind of confirmation, if submitting a form would delete fields without any way of undoing that action. A checkbox can be checked by mistake and therefore this really is a security-issue. May it be a simple JavaScript-confirmation-diloag "Are you sure you want to delete fields "field_1" and "field_2" in Content Type "CT1"?" or something more complex, if any of these checkboxes are checked, but something has to be added.

- This project does not come up with paragraph 2.3 in the project application checklist (as quoted below), but as this project is really helpful, well done, and can be easily extended in the future, I hope the final reviewer will not be too strict here.

2.3 Ensure your project contains a minimum of handwritten code.
We are currently discussing how much code we need, but everything with less than 120 lines of code or less than 5 functions cannot be seriously reviewed, that means we can't make sure you're able to write secure code and use Drupal's APIs correctly.
If this is the case, we can't approve you as git vetted user (giving you the permission to create full projects). Either we can see that you have the needed knowledge by other contributions within the drupal community or we can promote it to a full project manually.

- Coding standards seem to be fine, the automated review-tools didn't find anything, neither did I, well done!

As soon as the confirmation-mechanism is added, this module should be ready for the RTBC-status.

regards,
Martin

JS confirmbox added.

Status:Needs review» Reviewed & tested by the community

Okay, you added a really-hard-to-read JavaScript one-liner, but it does what it is supposed to do, so on the security-side this looks a lot better now.

The string "Are you sure you want to delete selected fields?" should be made translatable by using t(), but that's something uncritical and easy to do, so I guess a pro-reviewer should have a look now.

Code looks fine, nice module. Can you add some more detail to your project page?

Thanks for your contribution, gaurav.pahuja!

I updated your account to let you promote this to a full project and also create new projects as either a sandbox or a "full" project.

Here are some recommended readings to help with excellent maintainership:

You can find lots more contributors chatting on IRC in #drupal-contribute. So, come hang out and get involved!

Thanks, also, for your patience with the review process. Anyone is welcome to participate in the review process. Please consider reviewing other projects that are pending review. I encourage you to learn more about that process and join the group of reviewers.

Thanks to the dedicated reviewer(s) as well.
