Token Tokens are small bits of text that can be placed into larger documents via simple placeholders, like %site-name or [user]. The Token module provides a central API for modules to use these tokens, and expose their own token values. Note that Token module doesn't provide any visible functions to the user on its own, it just provides token handling services for other modules. Admin Toolbar What is Admin Toolbar module ?

A Recipe for a Rapid Drupal Site Building a Drupal site can be done very quickly and inexpensively under the right circumstances.

Pathauto The Pathauto module automatically generates URL/path aliases for various kinds of content (nodes, taxonomy terms, users) without requiring the user to manually specify the path alias. This allows you to have URL aliases like /category/my-node-title instead of /node/123 . The aliases are based upon a "pattern" system that uses tokens which the administrator can change. Configuration Update Manager The Configuration Update Manager module supplements the core Configuration Manager module, by providing a report that allows you to see the differences between the configuration items provided by the current versions of your installed modules, themes, and install profile, and the configuration on your site. The report is available from the administration UI, or via Drush commands. If you run the report from the administration UI, you can also import new configuration provided by updates, and revert your site configuration to the provided values, on a case-by-case basis. The main use case is: You update a module, and it has either changed default config that it provides, or added new config items.
