Layout Building in Drupal

When Drupal 8 introduced it's Layout Discovery API the manner in which Drupal websites were designed, built, and maintained drastically shifted. With that quickly came solutions like Layout Builder, Entity Reference with Layout, and Layout Paragraphs that allowed editors to not only manage the content on their websites, but to also manage that content's presentation. The potential of this newfound level of control means editors are now more in control of their online presence than they've ever been, but this flexibility isn't without it's own challenges. How can we help ensure that they're still putting their best foot forward? In this talk, we'll look at:

  • An overview of the tools available today and when we might use one over the other.
  • How to begin working with the new Layout Discovery API.
  • Tips to ensure the authoring experience for editors remains as intuitive as possible.
  • Common questions and pitfalls, as well as their solutions, that arise while designing and building.
