Over the last few months we’ve worked with more and more Drupal 8 sites. Those projects all had one thing in common … they used the Drupal Paragraphs module.
Paragraphs is a very popular module for handling content in Drupal 8.
Paragraphs works in a similar way to content fields, but also provides a wide range of options for the design, layout and grouping of your content.
If you want to learn Paragraphs, this is ultimate guide! Read, watch and follow along with all 10 parts of this tutorial. By the end, you’ll be using Paragraphs for all your sites too!
The Animations module in Drupal makes use of the three useful libraries:
They give the elements inside your site some extra cool features and make it more appealing.
In this tutorial, you will learn how to install the required libraries and the module and take a look at its basic usage.
Whenever you get into a situation where you are not sure which version of Drupal to use, or you expect to get challenged by a client, my recommendation is to use the approach of putting together the pros and cons, and see what insights emerge. This actually is a good follow-up to our discussion around Drupal 7 vs Drupal 8. So let’s build a table for that case as an example. This should be easily adaptable whenever Drupal 9 starts to be a thing. It also works for other technology discussions. Note that this table doesn’t intend to be a fully comprehensive list — just a starting point to launch a conversation. It may even need some updating as new Drupal 8 minor releases bring more and more functionality. Criteria D7 D8 Reusability (from D7 platform) Very limited to none Higher reusability between Drupal 8 and next versions (Drupal 9,…

I recently heard a heart-warming story from the University of California, Davis. Last month, UC Davis used Drupal to launch Article 26 Backpack, a platform that helps Syrian Refugees document and share their educational credentials. Over the course of the Syrian civil war, more than 12 million civilians have been displaced. Hundreds of thousands of these refugees are students, who now have to overcome the obstacle of re-entering the workforce or pursuing educational degrees away from home. Article 26 Backpack addresses this challenge by offering refugees a secure way to share their educational credentials with admissions offices, scholarship agencies, and potentials employers. The program also includes face-to-face counseling to provide participants with academic advisory and career development. The UC Davis team launched their Drupal 8 application for Article 26 Backpack in four months. On the site, students can securely store their educational data, such as diplomas, transcripts and resumes. The…

When Drupal 8.0 was released two and a half years ago, with a built-in REST API, it signaled the start of Drupal’s evolution to an API-first platform. Since then, each of the five new releases of Drupal 8 introduced significant web service API improvements. Drupal 8.6, shipping in September, will also have a new bunch of API improvements. Recently Dries Buytaert, founder and project lead of Drupal (and co-founder, Chief Technology Officer, and Chairman of the Board of Acquia), published an update on Drupal’s continuing evolution towards an API-first platform. Definitely worth a read. Among the milestones, recent and forthcoming: A Drupal 8.6 improvement: the move of the API-first code to the individual modules, instead of the REST module providing it on their behalf. In the long term, all Drupal modules should ship with web service APIs rather than depending on a central API module to provide their APIs —…

If you’re not familiar with GatsbyJS, then you owe it to yourself to check it out. It’s an up and coming static site generator with React and GraphQL baked in, and it prides itself on being really easy to integrate with common CMS’es like Drupal.
One of the most fundamental tasks of back-end Drupal 8 development is learning how to capture and utilize data. Unfortunately, as a new developer, trying to do so feels like wandering into an endless labyrinth of arrays, methods, objects, and arcane wizardry.
