  • Brief description:
    • Have you ever wanted a simple way to view and store information about the overall health of your Drupal website? There’s a module for that!
  • Module name/project name:
  • How old:
    • Project originally created in Sep 2007, current project looking like it took over the namespacex in June 2023
  • Versions available:
    • 1.10.0-alpha11 works with D8 and above
  • Maintainership
    • Currently very actively maintained, last release was in the past couple of weeks
  • Does not have issue enabled, project page says to open issues against ox project, which currently has no open issues
  • Usage stats:
    • 3 sites
  • Maintainer(s):
    • Jon Pugh, a founding member of the Aegir project, among many others
  • Module features and usage
    • The Site module stores information about the health of your site in a fieldable, revisionable entity
    • Provides a detailed history of the state of your site, including changes to configuration with a log of who changed what, where
    • Will include data on Drupal and PHP version, Git information, and more
    • Health can be based on the core Status report, the Site Audit module report, or a custom SiteState plugin
    • Can display an overall status indicator in the toolbar, so as a site owner or maintainer you don’t have to go to the Site Status page to see it
    • That page will display more detailed information, including the “reason” for the current status, the site’s history, and more
    • Integrates with the Site Manager module (also by Jon Pugh) which provides a UI for monitoring and managing a portfolio of Drupal sites
    • You can try out Site and Site Manager as part of the Operations project (machine name ox) as a Lando-based local setup of four sites, of which one provides a dashboard for the other three
