With all of the advancements that we've seen in Drupal the connection between Drupal and a solid front-end development process is still an enigma. Drupal, for a multitude of different reasons, has been labeled as being not so nice to work with as a front-end developer. I'm here to tell you, that's simply not the case! Drupal gives you all of the tools that we need to translate your beautiful html designs into flexible, configurable layouts. We just need to change our front-end development workflow.
In this session we'll cover how to implement a style guide driven development workflow in Drupal, as well as some key modules that will help with the process.
We will also talk about how the ELMS Learning Network team has embraced this new methodology and how it's enabled us to rapidly implement and maintain polished design components over a distributed network of systems without going completely insane.
Some of the concepts that we'll cover:
- Front-end frameworks
- Design components
- Rapid prototyping
- Components as view modes
This session is geared toward front-end developers who have experience in implimenting custom themes as well as backend devs who are interested in maintaining design components at scale.
