Original Post

The frontend world is buzzing with talk of pattern libraries, atomic design, and component-based design. The benefits of implementing a component-based system have been discussed ad nauseam, but how can we fully integrate these concepts into a Drupal site? Better yet, how can we bring a component-based page building experience to the Drupal admin?

The Brick Factory recently released a Beta version of Stacks, a contributed module that fully integrates component-based design and development into Drupal.  Stacks breaks content into reusable components called widgets. Once configured, widgets give content managers the ability to build rich, beautiful pages in Drupal.  The easy-to-use admin tools allow for drag and drop editing, reusable content, theme options and much more.

Join us on May 31 at 2:00 pm ET  for a webinar in which we explore ways to improve the Drupal frontend and content admin using the Stacks module.

We will cover:

  • An introduction to the Stacks Module
  • Stacks ‘widgets’ and an example page built with Stacks
  • How to build a widget from scratch using the Stacks module and twig templates

This webinar will benefit:

  • Developers looking to create a component-based Drupal website
  • Developers looking to set up a more friendly Drupal admin for content editors
  • Anyone interested in incorporating Stacks into a website
