Math Field Module

  • What does the Math Field module do?
  • Why did you develop it? What hole does it fill?
  • You mentioned EntityForm...
  • How does it compare to the Computed Field and other modules?
  • What are the limitations? When wouldn’t you use it?
  • You mentioned before we started recording that you actually rewrote the entire module to use core’s AJAX framework instead of custom jQuery. Why was that? and how did it go?

Use Cases

  • What types of sites do you see this being of most use?
  • I might be using this on an upcoming project


  • What are your plans for D8?
  • What other general features are planned? I saw the note on the project page about issues with multiple parameters and multivalue fields.
