Case description

The HC Davos Fan App serves as a one-stop solution for fans of the HC Davos ice hockey team. Built with Drupal as the backend and Next.js as the frontend, the app offers a seamless user experience across web and mobile platforms.

Community contributions

As part of this project, we have set up a new backend instance for the Davos Hockey Club. We utilize Drupal as the platform of choice. Our task involves processing over 20 interfaces through which we fetch and process data. Once the data is prepared, we make it available again through a JSON API.

To facilitate data provisioning, we have leveraged several community modules, namely:


For nearly all of these modules, we have provided assistance by creating and testing patches. I am confident that our efforts have contributed to the practical and effective utilization of these modules.
