There is a lot of excitement in the Drupal community about the pending release of Drupal 9. In particular, one of the most appealing elements is how the transition to Drupal 9 promises to be the easiest major upgrade in more than a decade. In reminiscing with other community members about some painful upgrades from long ago, it got me thinking about how the nature of the majority of Drupal modules has changed.
My first big Drupal project was using the 4. An example of this is the Job Search module I helped to maintain for a time. It had a preconfigured relationship between jobs and resumes, and permissions associated with different actions you would expect users to take: post jobs, apply for jobs, and so on.
There were frequent requests from users who wanted it to work just a little differently from how it was made. That started to change with the rise in popularity of toolsets and modules like CCK, which were more about making Drupal more flexible so it can be quickly customized to meet a very specific set of needs. Image API, Responsive Images, Metatags, and many more are examples of modules that gave Drupal important new abilities, but without any recommended starting point on how they should be used.
Even a tool like Features was built to help make those configuration decisions portable between sites or environments on the same site.
But increasingly all decisions on how these should be set up fell entirely on the site builder. Which was fine for those of us used to Drupal or fortunate enough to work among an experienced team of Drupal experts but more daunting for someone trying to put together a simple site.
Distributions have been one attempt at addressing this problem, such as the popular Commerce Kickstart, which helped to install a ready-to-use e-commerce site. In addition, Drupal Console gives us an easy way to export individual elements: a content type, a view, and related dependencies.
The view has already been set up to properly aggregate events with multiple events. If you also need your events to show in a calendar, you can use the Smart Date Calendar Kit. Installing it via composer gives you all the dependencies including Smart Date and Fullcalendar View plus everything described above in the starter kit.
The calendar is connected to the list views as navigation tabs, so it should be a robust starting point to manage events on your site. With all kinds of innovations happening each and every day, it is an exciting era in the history of Drupal.
The editorial experience becomes more and more important for each CMS. Users want more control but easier interfaces. In Drupal, one of the biggest and most popular OpenSource CMSes on the market, the search for the best experience continues until today.
Various approaches are tested by the community and with each edition, some new approaches are investigated and some are abandoned. From the perspective of a Drupal agency , it is quite interesting to watch this process unfold. Initially, Drupal pages were built on nodes. Think of a node as an article or page in a typical CMS.
A node had a Title and a Body. You titled the node and inserted all the content in one big text field. You could now author a quite complex page without knowledge of HTML. A node table with title and an additional table for the body. That is how Wordpress stayed pretty much till today. In Drupal however, the evolution continued. At the time of Drupal 5, an initially small module was created, which in Drupal 6 completely changed the rules of the game the Content Construction Kit module, aka.
CCK was a contributed module which allowed to add additional fields to nodes. This does not sound too exciting, but it was. The absolutely brilliant CCK module allowed users to add various fields number, text, bool, select etc and it was creating a separate database table for each field.
The table field was matching what you wanted to store in it A decimal, a float, a varchar, a text etc. On top of that, it was adding the field to the default content form. This was magnificent because you could create a form with multiple fields and then display the data in a template pre-built by the developer an image on the right, stats on the left, long tests at the bottom -- that sort of thing.
This is how one was building pages in Drupal. You could just fill in a form with fields and the template took care of the rest.
Moreover, you could now query in SQL for particular nodes by the field content. Very quickly after CCK, another module was created - the Views module. Views allowed users to build the queries in the admin interface. You could now create a list of cities ordered by population with a title and a teaser and some other data without the need to code anything. This was a massive breakthrough which allowed developers to create very compelling websites without writing a line of code.
From Drupal 7 fields were considered a standard. Templating, however, was not sufficient for the community and clients. Drupal developers began searching for solutions to allow more control over the content display with just the UI. The main reason for the search efforts is the way websites began to be built. The knowledge that an additional click reduces the chance the customer will get to the content was propagating.
The approach of having a sidebar and dividing information into pages was no longer interesting. Long scrollable pages were born. The advent of long landing pages with content in sections began somewhere in It was, however, the mobile that effectively killed the sidebar. You just could not fit a submenu in a sidebar on mobile. You now had to stick everything on one long scrollable page with multiple sections scrolling on mobile is much easier than clicking links.
And each section had to be interesting, compelling and different. Drupal developers started to search for solutions on how to allow the editors to create sections on pages easier. Drupal 8, being a very big re-write of Drupal has evened out the playing field a little, allowing the community to vote again on what it thinks should be the approach to building pages.
Blockreference did not get a D8 version, mostly because entityreference module was now in Drupal 8 core and blocks became references. One could theoretically build pages like this using what Drupal gives out of the box, but that did not catch on. Context did not manage to gather a lot of usages in D8 and until today does not have a stable release. The paragraphs module came out as a clear winner. It was stable very quickly and became the de-facto standard in Drupal 8 for over a year.
With over k installations it now runs one-third of all the drupal websites. It is also worth mentioning that popular Drupal distributions created on Drupal 8 chose paragraphs as the base of their content editing experience. Here is an overview of how paragraphs work in Drupal 8.
A lot of work is also being done to further improve the editorial experience in the Experimental widget. Panelizer took a different road. It lingered on behind paragraphs in term of the number of installs but because of its popularity in D7 work was underway to migrate it into Drupal core just as CCK in d7.
It was however only in Drupal 8. At Drupal 7. Integrations are also lagging, most importantly with search modules. Currently, there is no clear winner and best practice is not established yet. There is the paragraphs module with k installations, multiple integrations and a clear UI.
On the other hand, there is the Layout Builder which is in Drupal core, what is an incredible strength. Still, though there are many modules which did not stand the test of time and were removed from the core. Last but not least there is the Gutenberg project. It is the newest of the interesting editors in Drupal. It was ported from Wordpress where it is the main editor.
It differs in approach to Paragraphs and Layout Builder in that it does not store the layout or entities in the database, but it stores the generated HTML. This makes it a true WYSIWYG readability of the content for machines automatic updates or migrations of such content may be troublesome. Nonetheless, it continues to be integrated into Drupal better and better. With or so installs it is by no means comparable to the two above but the speed of adoption is impressive.
Check out a quick overview of Gutenberg in Drupal. As you can see, there is no clear winner. Drupal community is still testing various approaches to building websites and empowering the editors. On the one hand, this is fantastic because competition helps the best solution win. What is best? I do not know. It's mainly used for showing changes to configuration or content revisions.
However, it can be used in other ways too. Here are some quick steps to show how to use the Diff component in your custom forms or controllers. One way Drupal core uses the Diff component is to show the difference between 'Active' and 'Staged' config.
Recently, I was building a form where I had to show the diff between two versions of an entity. The Diff component is designed as a stand-alone component that can be used to show the diff between any two arrays or strings.
So why not use that in our own forms? I hope this helps.
