Insight development using Features module
What is Features?
We are using Features module. We can build custom features with this module because "no need to programming, just click-click and done". We can organize the each part of our Insight page into one or more feature like a custom module. So I would suggest that, create a few new features like "Super Event Calendar".
How to do this? What is a workflow?
That is a good question. We have to figure it out how to do this easily. I suggest that we put our features into a git repository like Insight repository, which contains our features, for example "Super Event Calendar", "Awesome Podcast System".
We have to complete this section, have to speak about this. --Asrob 18:01, 11 May 2011 (UTC)

- Download the Features module from http://drupal.org/project/features
- Enable the module on http://example-domain/admin/build/modules page.
- Manage the features on http://example-domain/admin/build/features page.
- Create a custom feature on http://example-domain/admin/build/features/create page.
If you want to create a custom super feature, you have to click _create feature_ link at the top on the create feature page, see step 4.
Fill those requirements(Name, Description, Version) as you like it, then select those settings at the _Edit components_ part. If you have done with this, just click the _Download feature_ button.
After this process, just upload your custom feature on the server into the "sites/all/modules" directory.
When you created a custom feature and you would like to use it, then you have to go on Features page, see step 3.
If you want to enable a custom feature, you have to click a checkbox of the selected custom feature then click _save settings_ button.
