Recently, in Drupal 8 has appeared significant improvements, unlike Drupal 6 and 7. Now, after the release of Drupal 8, it's easy to create and edit content, even for those who are not an expert in writing code, since the content editing options "on place ", improved preview and the ability to drag uploaded images greatly simplify life.
Benefits of HTML5
Many elements of HTML5, the most recent version of the page markup language, were included in Drupal 8. It offers many new features.
Developers, users, and even search engines will appreciate the impeccable simplicity and cleanliness of the code. HTML5 is a simplified syntax, as well as a much cleaner code that is easier to read to search engines, which results in improved search results.
HTML5 will also make the site more interactive thanks to geolocation support, video and audio, as well as the ability to download certain elements of the site without having to connect to the Internet - using offline caching.
High compatibility with major browsers and great opportunities for creating responsive themes that look great on mobile devices are also the undisputed benefits of HTML5.The Views module is now in the kernel!
One of the most popular Drupal modules is now finally integrated into Drupal 8. It no longer needs to be installed. The Views module allows users to customize pages, create lists, tables, maps, menus, blocks, and more.Convenient interfacing with external services
"In the future, the content management system will have to display data on many devices and integrate with a multitude of systems and services." So said Drys Baitert, founder of Drupal. And all this is embodied in Drupal 8.
In the core of Drupal 8 there are 4 special modules for web services, created specifically for the perfect interaction with external applications that may be needed for your project. Posting to social networks, hosting email campaigns from the site and much more is now becoming very simple and does not require the installation of additional modules.Great multilingual opportunities
Drupal 8 makes it much easier to create a multi-language site without the need to install additional modules, as in Drupal 7. Modules that support language and translation are now built into the Drupal core.
Drupal 8 offers you a selection of about 100 languages. Everything, from the interface to the content on your site, can be easily translated into all the necessary languages. And thanks to better language recognition, support for transliteration and bidirectional writing (RTL), multi-language goes to a new level.WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get)
The new Drupal 8 contains the WYSIWYG editor. WYSIWYG is a user interface that lets users see the state of work at the time the document is created. In general, WYSIWYG helps you manage content and manipulate the placement of items in a document. In older versions of Drupal, the developer needed to complete the system with the WYSIWYG editor module so that the content manager could later add the image, change the font style, create a markup list, etc. If the editor is immediately supported by Drupal, developers will not need “to break their head” over the WYSIWYG module upgrade.Improved with using Twig
Drupal 8 replaced the PHP Template with the Twig template, which is very suitable for users without technical knowledge. Twig embodies a new approach to simulation.
Now users without PHP knowledge can easily work with topics. The Twig syntax is very easy to understand. Drupal 8 also offers more flexibility in customizing the theme. In addition, your themes will be more secure.Quick Editing
In this version of Drupal there is a feature that will give you the ability to edit content immediately ("on the spot"). Drupal 8 no longer needs the editing function, as well as a new page for making changes to the content.Adding and displaying embedded images
Adding embedded images to Drupal 7 is easy to say but difficult to do. That's why Drupal 8 is rushing to help! The WYSIWYG toolbar contains a button that offers the following options:
• uploading photos / images; • choice of image location; • adding headers; • “Draging” images into the desired field inside the dialog.
All these options can be implemented inside the editor. Improve the developer's life - use Drupal 8!Improved preview with browsing options
The preview in Drupal 7 looks the same as a simple editor, while the same options in Drupal 8 look similar to how your content will be displayed on the site. You will also have default preview options and a thesaurus preview. Drupal 8 is pretty much superior to Drupal 7, is not it?Responsive interface
Make the workflow easy and effective to work with content for Drupal 8 one of the easiest tasks! The responsive interface is now available in two modes: editor and view mode, which means the toolbar and the themes correspond to the size of the browser. The mobile interface in Drupal 8 includes a snap and a simple menu as well as a nice navigation system for mobile devices. Setting up images in Drupal 7 is a serious challenge, but not for Drupal 8. Make it easier and faster the proces of development, using the new Content Management System - Drupal 8.Conclusion
In the end, all these features have been developed and improved for easy work with content in Drupal. To make site content more beautiful than before, use the WYSIWYG editor, improved preview, drag and drop of downloaded images and other options that save time. Experienced developers do not load themselves with constant updating of modules. They just use Drupal 8, a true revolution in Drupal's development!
