Twig was introduced into Drupal over 7 years ago, and since then Drupal’s front-end developer experience has remained stagnant. But that’s about to change!
In this session, we’re going to talk about lots of new and interesting features that will make you fall in love 💙❤️💚 with Drupal’s theming experience all over again!
New features include
- A new Starterkit theming experience in Drupal 10
- Default markup and styling for basic accessible modern site navigation
- Default front-end styling for common Drupal components including tabs, etc
- New Twig features such as new filters, etc
- Solving various #DrupalWTF’s within the theming layer (and leaving a couple behind too!)
To get the most out of this session, you should be somewhat familiar with Drupal’s theming layer, and have cursed it more than once.
