In Detail

Drupal 8 is a free, open source content management system primarily used for the development and management of websites. Comparing it with its predecessor, Drupal 7, Drupal 8 introduces a number of huge architectural changes geared towards better usability, development experience, and cross-platform support, making it the most versatile and flexible open source CMS in the world.

Starting with the basic technologies that drive Drupal, this book will walk you through the architecture of Drupal 8 and its main subsystems and explain how to use its APIs to build your own custom modules.

It also delves into the concepts of Symfony 2 and its basic components that are used in Drupal 8. It will help you venture into the domain of admin interface designing, plugins, and views newly introduced in this version of Drupal. It will also enable you to gain valuable insights on the changes in JavaScript and the updated command names.

It then rounds off by giving you an overview of the module porting process and the concept of Profile Installation.
