I'm trying to achieve this in Drupal 7. This is what I need URL for working example (But its not in Drupal).

Requirement - Live Preview with alignment features

Requirement - Live Preview

From Drupal.Stackexchange I've came across this post 29325 where the user is trying to achieve the similar thing there its mentioned about the Drupal's Live Module but as the description page of the module shows yet its not made up for Drupal 7 and I'm sure this will not fulfill my requirement.


  1. Rather than Drupal's Live module, is there any other module available?
  2. Can any of the JS/jQuery plugin or library or framework can fulfill my above mentioned requirement?


  • I've created the left/side panel form using the custom content type hence now, if I can achieve this live preview using some JS plugin/library also then I'm fine with it as I can see that no Drupal module is available for this!
  • Perhaps you can use drupal.org/project/edit

  • Thanks for your suggestion @undersound, but as you can see its too different from what I'm looking for. I'm looking for a real time preview not an in-line editor, in the sense what I want is when I'm trying to create a node, I should get the preview of that node in real-time with a feature of dragging and dropping the elements.

  • I highly doubt that you will find a module that fits your requirements exactly. This should not be too hard with a little javascript. Use form_alter on your node edit form, add div elements or a canvas for the preview, attach javascript listeners on your inputs, then write the javascript that listens and populates the preview when the inputs change.

I have started development of a module - Live preview which might be more along the lines of what you're after.

This module provides a more comprehensive, genuine and interactive version of the built-in node preview feature.

The live preview feature requires JavaScript; if JavaScript is disabled it will not apply its triggers, effectively retaining the built-in preview.

It hasn't yet reached a stable release, but it's worth checking out (-dev version should work just fine).
