Drupal 8 Theming Series Overview

August 01, 2015

Lessons from the Road

Back in 2014, I set out on an adventure with Memorial Sloan Kettering and multiple web and design agencies to begin building the first fully-operational, enterprise-level Drupal 8 website. We succesfully launched the site in May of 2015. I want to share some of the real-world lessons I learned over the past year, so that hopefully you can start adopting Drupal 8.

Series Overview

Here is my planned series of blog posts. This may change a bit over time as I make my way through writing all of this up.

  1. Philosophy for early D8 theming

  2. Getting started with a new D8 theme

  3. Libraries - include JS and CSS in your theme

  4. Twig templates and Classy base theme

  5. Debugging and Caching

  6. Regions and Blocks

  7. THEMENAME.theme - preprocessing, template suggestions and more
