SkillsCast

JavaScript Modernisation Initiative

8th August 2018 in London at CodeNode

This SkillsCast was filmed at Drupal London Developers August Meetup

This session was not filmed.

Back in 2007, the very first iPhone was released, the skeuomorphic design golden era was starting, the last Harry Potter book was published, and Britney Spears had an extra tough year. Also, Drupal 5 shipped with jQuery.

Over ten years later, not much has changed for Drupal's JavaScript architecture. The goal of the Admin UI & JavaScript Modernisation initiative is to provide a re-imagined content authoring experience and site administration experience in Drupal, built on top of modern JavaScript foundations. The initiative's main priorities are:

  • Create a new ""design system"" for Drupal's editing and administrative interface, and implement this in incrementally.
  • Create a decoupled, single-page React application that manages Drupal administration
  • Modernize the underlying JavaScript code and enhance Drupal's APIs to better support all types of decoupled applications.

We are especially looking for feedback on everything we're currently working on!
