DrupalCon Amsterdam 2019:Next steps on modernizing the Drupal theme system (Drupal 9 and beyond)
Presenter: Lauri Eskola
Drupal theme system, which is over a decade old system also fails to support some of the modern software engineering practices applied commonly these days, such as semver and component driven development. Support to both of these has been added as an hacked-on after-thought, that have big downsides.
On this session, I will give an overview of what changes has been made prior to Drupal 9 to tackle some of these issues. I will also walk through some of the ideas on how we could further improve the frontend development experience during the development of Drupal 9 minor releases.
