Paragraphs & PatternLab: A Love Story

Feb 17, 2019

I recently had the opportunity to work in a really interesting Drupal 8 project with a short deadline. One of the requirements of the project was that the client needed to be able to have control over the look and feel of almost all the site.

We decided that we needed to go with paragraphs because it would give the client that flexibility and we wanted to give it a try to Pattern Lab so we included it into the project. We expected these two elements to play nice together; however, we were wrong: they play HELL NICE together.

During this session, we'll talk about the process of going from the design to a polished and flexible website mainly built with these two tools. We'll learn how to extract the components for paragraphs, how to create them in Pattern Lab and how to bring them together.

No prior knowledge of paragraphs or Pattern Lab is required because we'll cover the basics during the talk so that you can get the most out of it.
