    Hi list,

    description = [[
    Enumerates the installed Drupal modules by using a list of known
    modules.

    The script works by requesting
    /sites/all/modules/MODULE_NAME/LICENSE.txt.
    If the response status code is 200, it means that the module is
    installed.
    By default, the script checks for the top 100 modules (by
    downloads), given the huge number of existing modules (~10k).
    ]]

    From what I have found so far, requesting the LICENSE.txt file is
    the best option because it is added for every module uploaded on
    drupal.org <http://drupal.org> (normal way to get drupal modules).
    Other possible options are:

    - Requesting MODULE_NAME/ And checking against the status code of
    a response for an obviously non-existing module request.

    - Building a DB with records specific for each module (some
    modules have .js, .css  files or subfolders etc...) which is
    cumbersome.

    I have also attached a list of Drupal modules ranked by number of
    downloads (extracted from [1]) that should be copied in nselib/data/

    Any input is welcome.

    Cheers,

Hi Hani,

This looks like a useful script. I haven't tested it yet, but I looked through it briefly and I think it could benefit from detecting a common "problem" where errors or 404 are detected as 200 OK. The http-enum is using http.identify_404 to do this.

I'll try to find a Drupal installation later today and give it a go.

Cheers,
Patrik

This would have been true if we were relying on the first option (requests to MODULE_NAME/ and checking responses status codes) but in the current case, we are requesting static resources (LICENSE.txt) and so far, with all installations I have seen, none caused a problem. Maybe we could add simple string matching or checking the hash of the response body.

If you come across any installations where http.identify_404 is really needed, please let me know.

Hi Hani,

Thanks for the good work!
Additionally to what Patrik mentioned, I have a couple (minor)
observations concerning the script:
   - get_modules_path should be declared as "local".
   - the bfqueries variable in the action function is never used.
   - indentation is broken from line 115 to 118

Beside this it looks good to me.

Regards.


Fixed! thanks.
