Module Development

When to Roll Your Own Module (or not)

Today I added a tiny new feature to this website. Basically, I wanted a way to add a 'tweet this' link to posts of certain content types like blogs or maybe articles.

I did some searching and found that a module called 'tweet' exists. (Be Circle Rule 12 of Drupal states that if you have an idea for a module that module has already been written**). Tweet seemed to do everything I wanted, but on closer inspection I discovered it did a bit too much. The module does what it advertises, and appears to work, but it's just not for me.

What do you do in theses situations?
