Drupal Gatsby and React Components

Feb 17, 2019

At Mediacurrent we have embraced using the buzzword 'headless architecture' on a variety of projects. Our own website is using Drupal 8 but with a static site generator called Jekyll. We have also come to enjoy using Gatsby as more robust SSG, and are in the middle of converting the front end, without messing around with the content model of Drupal. It hasn't been all smooth sailing. This talk I will go over some of the pitfalls of this migration. Issues like the pains of using Gatsby when it wasn't really ready for Paragraphs or other entity types (it's much better now). Additionally I would like to show off our new React Components library, which is a conversion from the Pattern Lab Comonent Library to React.
