Experience level
50 min

Session in a nutshell:

In this session we'll have a look at how to setup Drupal in 2020 to deliver an improved experience with a focus on content editors and which contrib modules will help you achieve that. Not only I'll guide you through the setup of the showcased modules but also providing code snippets and a fully working example for you to kickstart with!



I will talk about how to setup your Drupal to deliver a better Content Editor Experience. This will include different contrib modules:

  • Entity Reference with Layout
  • ERL Restriction
  • Paragraphs
  • Layouts in Core
  • Claro
  • Gin
  • Gin Login
  • Gin Toolbar
  • Optional Frontend module rendering in the backend for an even better experience
    • Options for Decoupled, progressive decoupled and legacy sites
  • and more

Also will it include best practice configuration of Drupal, the contrib modules etc. and a fully working Drupal instance at the end. Not sure yet to provide the code on a step by step basis of even make it an interactive session with live coding/configuring – or a combination ;-) Another aspect will be the Gin admin theme – which is an extension to Claro – and how you can use ideas we presented at the last "The Future of the Drupal Admin UI" already today and how this will help you customize the backend more for your customer.
