Looking to create the latest and greatest digital experience for your valued audience? Then chances are you’re going to use Drupal to do it.

Drupal is one of the best content management softwares on the market, but what makes it particularly special is its flexibility. Modularity is one of Drupal’s outstanding benefits, as it allows developers to innovate, share, and build websites and apps more productively.

To help you refine the development process, here are eight of the best-reviewed Drupal modules for web developers.

1. Slider Revolution

Slider Revolution is an all-purpose slide displaying solution. It is highly customizable and allows for displaying almost any type of content with smooth transitions, effects, and custom animations. Not to mention, it’s visually pleasing and intuitive, which makes it particularly easy for beginners to navigate.

The most recent version of Slider Revolution includes responsive design features, modern transitions, SEO-friendly software, 3D transitions, and a drag-and-drop slide-builder.

2. MegaSlider

An alternative and equally as impressive slider option is MegaSlider. MegaSlider is highly-customizable and responsive, allowing for touch-swipe navigation.

Some of the best features of MegaSlider include:

  • SEO Optimization functionality
  • YouTube or Vimeo video integration
  • Image pre-loader
  • Effects and slide transitions
  • Cross browser support
  • Mobile-responsivity

Mega-slider is also very easy to use with a drag-and-drop admin area and the ability to add Google fonts.

3. Drupal Drag Drop Builder

Drupal Drag Drop Builder works with several Drupal themes and allows you to build pages more efficiently. With its drag-and-drop feature, you can easily add rows, sections, columns, and content to your pages.

Some key features include:

  • HTML5 video background
  • Set animations
  • Configuration capabilities based on user roles
  • Responsive Grid CSS
  • Drupal Entity attachments

If you are looking for an easy to install and highly intuitive page builder,  Drupal Drag Drop Builder is a great option.

4. Azexo Composer

Azexo Composer is another powerful drag-and-drop, front-end content builder. This particular drag-and-drop page-builder can work with Bootstrap 3 and CSS/JavaScript. With Azexo Composer, every element can be animated via JavaScript scroll, and you can create custom blocks and easily insert it into your theme.

One of Azexo Composer’s best qualities is its impressive integrations which simplify the building process. Integrations include:

  • front-end content slide builder
  • front-end Impress JavaScript presentation visual builder
  • front-end popup visual builder
  • front-end form visual builder
  • Drupal blocks, views, images styles, media module, linkit module, etc.

The Azexo Composer page-builder supports several other impressive page-building features and caters especially well to developers with JavaScript skills.

5. Modernizr

Modernizr is a great tool for theming. It tells you what CSS, HTML, and JavaScript features a browser is using, which helps you provide tiered experiences. In other words, it helps you make use of the best features each browser has to offer, so you can improve your visitors’ experience. Additionally, this module helps you when creating custom themes or using tools that require HTML5; Modernizr adds support to browsers that don’t support HTML5.

6. Devel

The Devel package works to help developers with debugging and also includes Devel Generate. Devel Generate produces dummy users, nodes, and taxonomy terms to simplify processes. Additionally, it includes a theme developer that will display theme API information.

7. Honeypot

Honeypot helps with spambot detection, taking CAPTCHAs out of the equation. It works by using both the honeypot and timestamp methods to discourage spambots from completing forms on your website.

8. Global Redirect

Part of the web development process includes making sure all aspects of your site appeal to search engines as well as users. Global Redirect checks all URLs and properly redirects them. It ensures your site doesn’t have any duplicate URLs and eliminates the chance of your site getting penalized by Google.
