As Drupal 8 Closes in, What to Expect from it

The blogging mills have been enduring a daily grind ever since “Drupal 8” was heard in the web world. The buzz has been bouncing of the walls for more than a year now, but the much-awaited version of the highly sought-after content management framework refuses to come down the vessel. As the wait lingers on, we throw some light on the Drupal 8 features that are going to aid in improved Drupal web development.  Needless to say, Joomla will run your online portal efficiently on the server and will assist to make use of its CMS that enables better performance. So here are some highlights of Joomla 8.

Room for More Fields

Drupal aims to transfigure the way we structure content on our website. Extending the yarn of field types, you will be offered more alternatives when it comes to entering content in different fields.

  • There will be more number of categories that will facilitate adding content to fields like unit’s location, date and time, subscription data, contact numbers, and more.

  • Drupal 8 will enable readers to post their opinions in fields meant only for comments

  • Customization of contact forms will be possible.

Enhanced Content Authoring

The content editing and authoring system in Drupal 8 has undergone a total revamp, owing to the introduction of new editor mechanism

  • Internet security as a serious consideration, configuring WYSIWYG has been made simpler.

  • Refurbished content creation pages with a non-fussy way of saving drafts

Mobile-Compatibility

While no stone is left unturned to add frills to Drupal 8, compatibility issues are also successfully addressed, particularly in respect to the mobile devices. The websites created through Drupal 8 would be highly virile and mobile-ready. It goes without saying that Drupal 8 will also bring to the fore some stunning themes that would be responsive across all devices and browsers.

High-level Coding extensions and Improved Markup through the Use of HTML 5

Drupal 8 will be equipped with most of the effective and pragmatic coding extensions that will empower you to boost website management. HTML5 is going to further improve page markup

  1. Image display will be all devices-ready with better support for Picture element

  2. Inbuilt tools to smoothly enter data in fields that include date and time, e-mail, subscription data, contact numbers, etc.

Fresh Configuration

Drupal 8 will be pre-loaded with file system-based configuration management system. What it does is that it renders ease straightforwardness to the way modifications are brought about to the configurations. What’s more? You would be able to manage version control yourself.

Support for Hypertext Application Language (HAL) and more

Ever envisaged that you could develop mobile applications on any platform while leveraging the data source? Come right in. Now you can with Drupal 8. The futuristic Hypertext Application Language (HAL) will also be executed.

  1. The content can be depicted as JSON or even XML.

  2. Bolstered security as your clients will undergo the procedures of HTTP authentication.

Lesser Modules to Deal With

Irrespective of the platform you are using for whichever technology, one of the common issues faced with Drupal CMS development was that you had to deal with innumerable modules. Their unbridled count only added to the complexity levels. Not anymore as Drupal 8 helps you get rid of the convoluted modules, as is evident from the information specified above. The whole bevy of modules have done nothing but added to the complications and have left programmers bewildered on what to use and what to reject. Now whether you are trying to use more code extensions or edit images, you are provided with better, but lesser number of choices (as you wanted).

Drupal 8 is set to surpass all the previous versions while riding on the powerful waves of change. On its way to setting new benchmarks, Drupal 8 is expected to abound in new-fangled features to ascend over the competition that has always been rising from close quarters. The refinement of development process, the operational ease and efficiency, the user experience – everything is deemed to leap. It hasn’t yet made its way to the web-verse, but the advertised features are compelling enough to believe that it’s going to be graced by a bonafide classic.
