Angela "@webchick" Byron
May 26, 2015
About me
What are we doing here?

D8 for module developers
• Answers to frequently asked questions
• Q&A
1. Improved Authoring
Experience
2. Mobile First
3. Site Builder
Improvements
Views in Core!
What is Views module?
• Create fully customizable:
• Admin listings
• Sidebar content
• Image galleries
• Slideshows
• XML/JSON output
• …with zero lines of code!
Better Blocks
New Field Types
4. Multilingual++
Translatable Everything!
• Content
• Blocks
• Menus
• User Profiles
• Taxonomy
• Views
• Image styles
• Text formats
• Comments
• Feeds
• …and more!
• No contributed
modules needed!
5. Configuration
Management
6. Front-end developer
improvements
HTML5 Forms
PHPTemplate is now Twig
7.x: page.tpl.php 8.x: page.html.twig
<div id="page-wrapper">
<div id="page">
<div id="header">
<div class="section clearfix">
<?php if ($logo): ?>
<a href="<?php print $front_page; ?>"
title="<?php print t('Home'); ?>"
rel="home" id="logo">
<img src="<?php print $logo; ?>"
alt="<?php print t('Home'); ?>"
/>
</a>
<?php endif; ?>
<div class="layout-container">
 
<header role="banner">
{% if logo %}
<a href="{{ front_page }}"
title="{{ 'Home'|t }}"
rel="home">
<img src="{{ logo }}"
alt="{{ 'Home'|t }}"/>
</a>
{% endif %}
• Friendlier syntax for designers
• Variables auto-escaped for better security
http://twig.sensiolabs.org
No more (core) support for

IE 6, 7, & 8
7. Web Services
8. Modern, OO Code
Warning:
Things are about to
get... geeky.
"Getting off the Island"
Modern PHP Best Practices
• PHP 5.4+
• Classes/Interfaces
• Namespaces
• Traits
• Dependency Injection
• Most PSR-* standards
Powered by Symfony2
Tutorial: http://fabien.potencier.org/article/50/create-your-own-
framework-on-top-of-the-symfony2-components-part-1
…and dozens of other "best
of breed" libraries
…and dozens of other
librariesA peek under the hood
YAML, YAML everywhere
7.x: example.info 8.x: example.info.yml
name = Example
description = "Example module"
core = 7.x
files[] = example.test
config = admin/config/example
dependencies[] = node
name: Example
type: module
description: "Example module"
core: 8.x

config: admin.example
dependencies:
- node
• New required "type" property
• No more files[] (we'll get to that later)
• Paths now have machine names to
help prevent breakage

(we'll get to that later, too)
Drupalism: Kinda-
Sorta-INI-Like
"Proudly Invented
Elsewhere": YAML
Classes, classes everywhere
sites/all/modules
example

example.test
7.x
modules

8.x
src▼
ExampleForm.php
ExampleInterface.php
ExampleController.php
…
Pages, forms, blocks, etc. are now all object-oriented.
"Hello World" in Drupal 7
function example_menu() {
$items['hello'] = array(
'title' => 'Hello world',
'page callback' => '_example_page',
'access callback' => 'user_access',
'access arguments' => 'access content',
);
return $items;
}
 
function _example_page() {
return t('Hello world.');
}
example.module
Drupalism:
"ArrayPIs" ;)
"Hello World" in Drupal 8
example.hello:
path: '/hello'
defaults:
_content: 'DrupalexampleExampleController::hello'
requirements:
_permission: 'access content'
example.routing.yml
<?php
 
namespace Drupalexample;
 
use DrupalCoreControllerControllerBase;
 
/**
* Returns responses for Example module routes.
*/
class ExampleController extends ControllerBase {
public function hello() {
return new Response($this->t('Hello world.'));
}
}
src/ExampleController.php "Proudly Invented
Elsewhere":
- YAML

- PSR-4 Class Autoloader
- OO code
Defining a block: 7.x
example.module
<?php
function example_block_info() {
$blocks['example'] = array(
'info' => t('Example block'),
);
return $blocks;
}
function example_block_view($delta = '') {
$block = array();
switch ($delta) {
case 'example':
$block['subject'] = t('Example block');
$block['content'] = array(
'hello' => array(
'#markup' => t('Hello world'),

),
);
break;
}
return $block;
}
Drupalism: "Mystery
Meat" APIs based on
naming conventions
Defining a block: 8.x
<?php
namespace DrupalexamplePluginBlock;
use DrupalblockBlockBase;
/**
* Provides the Example block.
*
* @Block(
*  id = "example",
*  admin_label = @Translation("Example block"),
* category = @Translation("Example")
* )

*/ 

class ExampleBlock extends BlockBase {
public function build() {
return array('hello' => array(
'#markup' => $this->t('Hello world.')
));
} 

}
src/Plugin/Block/ExampleBlock.php
"Proudly Invented
Elsewhere":

- Annotations
- APIs defined by
Interfaces

Answers To Your Burning
Drupal 8 Questions!
When will Drupal 8 be
released?
When is "when it's
ready"?
Sometime after this graph hits zero.
https://www.drupal.org/drupal-8.0/get-involved
What's left in that list?
• Performance fixes/
improvements
• Security fixes/improvements
• Beta-to-beta upgrade path
• Future-proofing (PHP7,
Symfony 3, etc.)
beta -> rc -> 8.0.0
• While count of critical issues >
0, create monthly beta releases
(we are here!)
• If critical issues === 0, start bi-
weekly release candidates
(same as D6/D7 release
windows)
• Only critical fixes or extremely
non-disruptive (e.g. docs)
patches committed during
RC, to prevent regressions.
• Once count, rate, and nature of
criticals seem manageable, set
a release date >= 3 weeks later.
https://www.drupal.org/core/release-cycle#rc
alpha 

release beta RC1
we are here!
x
“WHEN IT’S READY”
What happens after 8.0.0?
• Drupal 6 support dropped 3 months
after Drupal 8.0.0's release.
• Bug fix/security releases continue
on monthly schedule as now in D6/D7.
• New "feature releases" of Drupal 8
every 6 months (8.1.x, 8.2.x…) with
non-BC breaking improvements.
• Drupal 9 not branched until much
later, when there's enough
"meat" (completed change proposals
which can't be committed to 8.x) to
make a compelling product
• Drupal 8 enters "LTS" mode (security
fixes only) after Drupal 9.0.0
D6 SUPPORT
ENDS
8.2.08.1.0

What about upgrades?
• Upgrade path between 8.x versions
• Not supported in core yet; see https://www.drupal.org/project/
head2head in contrib for now
• Migration path between major versions (6/7 => 8)
• Build out your Drupal 8 site as a new site, then migrate content,
users, etc. over.
• Drupal 6 => 8 migrations already in! Drupal 7 => 8 migrations
are in progress.
• Must port your own custom code; stick with well-used contrib
modules if you can!
Kick-start your custom code
porting

When can I use D8?
Some early adopters are
already using it…
When will most people use
D8?

*Right now*!
(still have time to
fix APIs!)

Platform’s proven, but
community’s looking
forward to Drupal 9.
Let the community be your guide.

I'm building a new site now.
Should I start with D7 or D8?

Drupal 7 Drupal 8
Public facing Internal / R&D / Prototype
Rapid deployment Less urgent
Large, complex needs Can be done with what's in core
Full feature set Brochureware
Mission critical Experimental
Limited development team
Expert development team,
comfortable patching upstream
Developers more comfortable
with procedural code
Developers more comfortable
with OO code / Symfony
Sticking with D7?

  • 21.
  • 22.
  • 23.
  • 25.
  • 27. PHPTemplate is now Twig 7.x: page.tpl.php 8.x: page.html.twig <div id="page-wrapper"> <div id="page"> <div id="header"> <div class="section clearfix"> <?php if ($logo): ?> <a href="<?php print $front_page; ?>" title="<?php print t('Home'); ?>" rel="home" id="logo"> <img src="<?php print $logo; ?>" alt="<?php print t('Home'); ?>" /> </a> <?php endif; ?> <div class="layout-container">   <header role="banner"> {% if logo %} <a href="{{ front_page }}" title="{{ 'Home'|t }}" rel="home"> <img src="{{ logo }}" alt="{{ 'Home'|t }}"/> </a> {% endif %} • Friendlier syntax for designers • Variables auto-escaped for better security http://twig.sensiolabs.org

  • 37. …and dozens of other librariesA peek under the hood
  • 38. YAML, YAML everywhere 7.x: example.info 8.x: example.info.yml name = Example description = "Example module" core = 7.x files[] = example.test config = admin/config/example dependencies[] = node name: Example type: module description: "Example module" core: 8.x
 config: admin.example dependencies: - node • New required "type" property • No more files[] (we'll get to that later) • Paths now have machine names to help prevent breakage
 (we'll get to that later, too) Drupalism: Kinda- Sorta-INI-Like "Proudly Invented Elsewhere": YAML
  • 40. "Hello World" in Drupal 7 function example_menu() { $items['hello'] = array( 'title' => 'Hello world', 'page callback' => '_example_page', 'access callback' => 'user_access', 'access arguments' => 'access content', ); return $items; }   function _example_page() { return t('Hello world.'); } example.module Drupalism: "ArrayPIs" ;)
  • 41. "Hello World" in Drupal 8 example.hello: path: '/hello' defaults: _content: 'DrupalexampleExampleController::hello' requirements: _permission: 'access content' example.routing.yml <?php   namespace Drupalexample;   use DrupalCoreControllerControllerBase;   /** * Returns responses for Example module routes. */ class ExampleController extends ControllerBase { public function hello() { return new Response($this->t('Hello world.')); } } src/ExampleController.php "Proudly Invented Elsewhere": - YAML
 - PSR-4 Class Autoloader - OO code
  • 42. Defining a block: 7.x example.module <?php function example_block_info() { $blocks['example'] = array( 'info' => t('Example block'), ); return $blocks; } function example_block_view($delta = '') { $block = array(); switch ($delta) { case 'example': $block['subject'] = t('Example block'); $block['content'] = array( 'hello' => array( '#markup' => t('Hello world'),
 ), ); break; } return $block; } Drupalism: "Mystery Meat" APIs based on naming conventions
  • 43. Defining a block: 8.x <?php namespace DrupalexamplePluginBlock; use DrupalblockBlockBase; /** * Provides the Example block. * * @Block( *  id = "example", *  admin_label = @Translation("Example block"), * category = @Translation("Example") * )
 */ 
 class ExampleBlock extends BlockBase { public function build() { return array('hello' => array( '#markup' => $this->t('Hello world.') )); } 
 } src/Plugin/Block/ExampleBlock.php "Proudly Invented Elsewhere":
 - Annotations - APIs defined by Interfaces
  • 44. Read more about it! https://api.drupal.org/api/drupal/8 https://www.drupal.org/documentation/developer/api
  • 45. Every API change in Drupal 8 https://www.drupal.org/list-changes
  • 46. Summary of Awesomeness • Improved Authoring Experience • Mobile First • Views, expanded content modeling • Multilingual++ • Configuration Management • Twig & HTML5 • Web Services • Modern, OO Code • …and literally hundreds of other improvements! • Full scoop: https:// www.acquia.com/ resources/ebooks/ ultimate-guide-drupal-8
  • 47. More than 2,900
 people have contributed to Drupal 8 so far!
  • 48. Answers To Your Burning Drupal 8 Questions!
  • 49. When will Drupal 8 be released?
  • 50. When is "when it's ready"? Sometime after this graph hits zero. https://www.drupal.org/drupal-8.0/get-involved
  • 51. What's left in that list? • Performance fixes/ improvements • Security fixes/improvements • Beta-to-beta upgrade path • Future-proofing (PHP7, Symfony 3, etc.)
  • 52. beta -> rc -> 8.0.0 • While count of critical issues > 0, create monthly beta releases (we are here!) • If critical issues === 0, start bi- weekly release candidates (same as D6/D7 release windows) • Only critical fixes or extremely non-disruptive (e.g. docs) patches committed during RC, to prevent regressions. • Once count, rate, and nature of criticals seem manageable, set a release date >= 3 weeks later. https://www.drupal.org/core/release-cycle#rc alpha 
 release beta RC1 we are here! x “WHEN IT’S READY”
  • 53. What happens after 8.0.0? • Drupal 6 support dropped 3 months after Drupal 8.0.0's release. • Bug fix/security releases continue on monthly schedule as now in D6/D7. • New "feature releases" of Drupal 8 every 6 months (8.1.x, 8.2.x…) with non-BC breaking improvements. • Drupal 9 not branched until much later, when there's enough "meat" (completed change proposals which can't be committed to 8.x) to make a compelling product • Drupal 8 enters "LTS" mode (security fixes only) after Drupal 9.0.0 D6 SUPPORT ENDS 8.2.08.1.0 NEW
 FEATURES NEW
 FEATURES … NEW 
 FEATURES
  • 54. What about upgrades? • Upgrade path between 8.x versions • Not supported in core yet; see https://www.drupal.org/project/ head2head in contrib for now • Migration path between major versions (6/7 => 8) • Build out your Drupal 8 site as a new site, then migrate content, users, etc. over. • Drupal 6 => 8 migrations already in! Drupal 7 => 8 migrations are in progress. • Must port your own custom code; stick with well-used contrib modules if you can!
  • 55. Kick-start your custom code porting https://www.drupal.org/project/drupalmoduleupgrader
  • 56. When can I use D8?
  • 57. Some early adopters are already using it…
  • 58. When will most people use D8? Module/Theme developer *Right now*! (still have time to fix APIs!) Majority Once these lines cross total D8 D7 Early adopter Once beta-to-beta
 upgrade path supported
 (port your own contribs) Conservative Platform’s proven, but community’s looking forward to Drupal 9. Let the community be your guide. https://www.drupal.org/project/usage/drupal
  • 59. I'm building a new site now. Should I start with D7 or D8? http://www.slideshare.net/horncologne/ why-drupal-8-why-now-aprmay-2015 Drupal 7 Drupal 8 Public facing Internal / R&D / Prototype Rapid deployment Less urgent Large, complex needs Can be done with what's in core Full feature set Brochureware Mission critical Experimental Limited development team Expert development team, comfortable patching upstream Developers more comfortable with procedural code Developers more comfortable with OO code / Symfony
