Drupal Module Spotlight: URL Text for Efficient URL Handling


The newly introduced "URL Text" module enriches the Drupal ecosystem with a custom field type designed to house URLs in plain text, undergoing validation to ensure the presence of a valid URL. Supporting URL schemes including http, https, ftp, sftp, mailto, ssh, and tel, the module offers a straightforward solution for inputting and validating URLs within content or paragraph types. Notably, the module, created by Jeff Greenberg on 2 December 2023 and updated by 28 February 2024, requires no specific dependencies and comes equipped with no customizable settings upon installation.

With an emphasis on simplicity and functionality, the module has already garnered attention, boasting Jeff Greenberg and Wes Fairhead as its dedicated maintainers. Backed by organizations such as The Accidental Coder, offering essential provisions such as equipment, coffee, and pizza, and iFactory, extending varied forms of support, including upgraded equipment and morale-boosting activities, the "URL Text" module stands as a practical addition to the Drupal toolkit, delivering a robust solution for working with URLs in a plain text format.
