Drupal 8 Frontend for Backenders
Drupal 8 will ship with a fancy new template engine (Twig) and a simpler theme layer. In my session I’ll show you some goodies from Twig and walkthrough how to get started with it. I will also talk about what kind of problems people were having in Drupal 7 and what we’ve done to make it better. This session will show in both practical examples and on a broader scale why Drupal 8 will make peace between backenders and frontenders.
A high-level overview of the changes to the theme system in Drupal 8.
Some of the goodies that are possible now that we’re using Twig as our templating engine.
Using theme hook suggestions to cut down on custom code and have themers thanking you.
Phases of the theme system and where you can step in to alter things.
