If you look at Google search trends for "De-coupled CMS" or go through the agenda of various Drupal Cons/Camps, you will see a steady rise since late 2015.
Yes, we know that front end developers who have a preference for modern JS frameworks such as React and Angular love the idea of de-coupled Drupal. But what about marketers or other CMS users? Are they on board with loosing traditional CMS features such as drag & drop page builders, content preview etc, which they have been using for a over a decade?
In this session, we will go over this divide within the CMS world - Developer led de-coupled push Vs Marketer led resistance to stay with monolith/traditional CMS.
We will see how Drupal, can be the bridge that fills this gap.
We'll demo how you can use Drupal 8/9 today, in a completely de-coupled (with Angular, Next.js and Gatsby) fashion and still retain the following features:
- Drupal's layout builder for drag & drop page building
- Preview unpublished content and retain editorial workflow
- Managing menus
- Control meta tags and schema.org
- Set redirects
- and much more...
Bonus: we'll share Drupal projects and Github starter kits that will enable you to setup these demos and use these features yourself.
