21 things I learned with Twig & Drupal

Tuesday, October 11, 2016 - 10:45

Theming in Drupal8 was a massive shift from phptemplate to twig, but its more than changing the syntax. We changed the way of thinking about Drupal theming. Drupal twig theming is easy to learn, powerful, flexible and overall as awesome as warm coffee on a rainy day. The downside is that all the things you learned in Drupal now have to be relearned - Yes it's by design.

Over the last 4 years we (the frontend drupaltwig group) we got one burning question from the Drupal community.

“How I do this right the first time ? ”

Drupal Contribution: Embrace the Community.


Everyone agrees that open source contribution is a good thing to do. We are lucky to have so many types of contribution available to us through the Drupal codebase and within the community itself. But how can we each succeed with our own contribution journey?

How do we get started? How do we keep it going? How do we balance the rewards, the expectations and have time to look after ourselves? This is so much to take on alone. You need to embrace the community!
