  31. 31. Why Drupal is Good for You?
  32. 32. Cutting-edge Technologies
  33. 33. ©Tieto Corporation Symfony 2 Ruben Teijeiro - @rteijeiro ● Set of decoupled and reusable PHP components. ● Drupal 8 has included the following components in core: ○ HttpFoundation ○ HttpKernel ○ Routing ○ EventDispatcher ○ DependencyInjection ○ ClassLoader ○ Serializer ○ Validator ○ Yaml
  34. 34. ©Tieto Corporation Composer Ruben Teijeiro - @rteijeiro ● Tool for dependency management in PHP. ● Inspired by node’s npm and ruby’s bundler. ● Allows you to declare the libraries your project is dependant on and install them. ● Drupal 8 can be installed with all of its dependencies using Composer:
  35. 35. ©Tieto Corporation Guzzle Ruben Teijeiro - @rteijeiro ● PHP HTTP Client that abstracts away the HTTP transport layer. ● Supports different HTTP methods like cURL, sockets, PHP’s stream wrapper... ● Manages persistent connections and simplifies POST requests with fields and files. ● Can send both synchronous and asynchronous requests using the same interface. ● Useful for integration with RESTful APIs.
  36. 36. ©Tieto Corporation PHPUnit Ruben Teijeiro - @rteijeiro ● Programmer-oriented unit testing framework for PHP. ● Drupal 8 core development is supported by multiple unit tests that verifies the consistency of the codebase. ● Easy integration with IDEs like NetBeans, Eclipse and IntelliJ IDEA. ● Supported by Continuous Integration servers like Jenkins, Hudson and Sonar.
  37. 37. ©Tieto Corporation Twig Ruben Teijeiro - @rteijeiro ● Modern template engine for PHP, written by the creator of the Symfony framework. ● Compiles templates into plain, optimized PHP code, making it fast and secure. ● Uses a simple, template-oriented syntax, familiar to front-end developers. ● Powered by a flexible lexer and parser that allows definition of custom tags and filters and creation of a custom DSL.
  38. 38. ©Tieto Corporation jQuery Ruben Teijeiro - @rteijeiro ● Fast, lightweight and feature- rich JavaScript library for easy HTML document traversal and manipulation. ● Easy-to-use API for animations, event handling and AJAX that function across a multitude of browsers. ● Drupal 8 core includes jQuery 2, jQuery UI and other libraries which are built on top of jQuery.
  39. 39. ©Tieto Corporation Backbone.js Ruben Teijeiro - @rteijeiro ● Gives structure to web applications by providing models with key-value binding and custom events, collections with a rich API of enumerable functions, views with declarative event handling, and connects it all to your existing API over a RESTful JSON interface. ● Several components in Drupal 8, such as the administration toolbar, have been developed using Backbone.js.
  40. 40. ©Tieto Corporation Underscore.js Ruben Teijeiro - @rteijeiro ● JavaScript library that provides a whole mess of useful functional programming helpers without extending any built-in objects. ● Ships with over 100 functions like the functional helpers: map, filter, invoke — as well as more specialized goodies like function binding, javascript templating, creating quick indexes, deep equality testing, and so on.
  41. 41. ©Tieto Corporation Modernizr Ruben Teijeiro - @rteijeiro ● JavaScript library that detects HTML5 and CSS3 features in the user’s browser. ● Makes it easy to write conditional JavaScript and CSS to handle each situation, depending on whether a browser supports a feature or not. It’s perfect for doing progressive enhancement easily.
  42. 42. ©Tieto Corporation CKEditor Ruben Teijeiro - @rteijeiro ● CKEditor is a ready-for-use HTML text editor designed to simplify web content creation. It's a WYSIWYG editor that brings common word processor features directly to your web pages. ● Drupal 8 ships with CKEditor as the default WYSIWYG editor.
  43. 43. Performance
  44. 44. ©Tieto Corporation Performance ● Drupal 8 has an internal caching system that makes it possible to generate and store pages with different elements one time so they can be served faster in future requests. ● SmartCache optimizes how the elements are cached and how that cache is invalidated when an element has been changed, making Drupal 8 twice as fast. ● Drupal 8 rendering strategy follows the model behind Facebook BigPipe, which allows delivery of pages asynchronously, parallelizing browser rendering and server processing. ● No Javascript is loaded by default for anonymous users and CSS/JS assets can be easily aggregated and minified. Ruben Teijeiro - @rteijeiro
  45. 45. Scalability
  46. 46. ©Tieto Corporation Scalability ● Drupal 8 is the first CMS to run on a NoSQL database such as MongoDB. It also allows for easy integration with other storage systems. ● Multisite features in Drupal make it possible to manage many sites across your organization using the same core with an easy site creation and deployment process. ● Drupal 8 integrates with most common high-availability and scalability technologies such as reverse proxies, load balancers, database replication, distributed file systems... ● It also allows for integration with Enterprise Search systems such as Elastic Search and Apache Solr. Ruben Teijeiro - @rteijeiro
  47. 47. Security
  48. 48. ©Tieto Corporation Security ● Drupal has his own security team, responsible for detecting and fixing vulnerabilities. ● Drupal 8 includes several third-party components which are maintained by external communities with their own security teams. ● The new codebase in Drupal 8 follows the industry standard approach and is covered by unit tests, making it more reliable and secure. ● Twig, the template system in Drupal 8, sanitizes the data used in the templates and doesn’t allow the use of PHP code and database queries, reducing vulnerabilities due to SQL injection or bad programming. Ruben Teijeiro - @rteijeiro
  49. 49. Mobile Friendly
  50. 50. ©Tieto Corporation Mobile Friendly ● Drupal 8 default themes are fully-responsive in both user and administration areas. ● The new administration toolbar has been redesigned to fit perfectly in any screen size. ● Uploaded images, including images uploaded using the WYSIWYG editor, are automatically adapted to any device. ● All the front-end elements such as forms and tables follow the best practices for responsive design to offer the best mobile-enabled user experience. Ruben Teijeiro - @rteijeiro

  54. 54. Easy Content Authoring
  55. 55. ©Tieto Corporation Content Authoring Made Easy ● Drupal 8 includes CKEditor as the default WYSIWYG editor that is fully customizable to fulfill all the needs. ● The improved content authoring experience includes in- place content editing features. ● The new editing interface uses a two-column layout to separate the article content from the configuration settings. ● Editors can easily create content revisions to maintain different versions of the same article that can be restored when needed.

  59. 59. Flexible Content Architecture
  60. 60. ©Tieto Corporation Flexible Content Architecture ● Drupal 8 allows creation of custom content types using different field types to store text, dates, numbers, files, etc. One field can be displayed in many different ways using custom field formatters. ● Content can be categorised using Taxonomy vocabularies, that support fields and allows term hierarchy. ● A new block system, that also support fields, allows to present content positioned in different regions of the layout. ● Custom content listings are provided by Drupal Views module, that is a complete GUI for database queries, and allows custom filtering, sorting and relationships.
