The launch of Drupal 8 is bound to create more than a ripple in the pond. This latest version of Drupal, the world’s most popular enterprise web CMS, hosts around 200 new features and some much-needed advancements.
The Drupal community has grown into a gigantic 12 lac+ group that is spread across 229 countries supporting close to 180 languages, which is no mean achievement by itself.
In its spanking new avatar, Drupal 8 is going to benefit all those involved in Drupal website development especially those who write APIs or build complex applications and of course, anyone who is yearning for a better mobile interface.
The buzz around the launch of Drupal 8 has reached a crescendo and there are a few solid reasons why Drupal 8 can be great for your business.
So together, let’s explore what these reasons are:
Building multi-language websites is easier: Drupal 8 makes website construction with multi-lingual interface simpler and faster. The major benefits for users and developers include easiness in setting customization, language maintenance alternatives and improvements in site translations. This small but significant addition will surely increase its usability and application.
Drupal 8 is more accessible: The provision of centralized controls for Internet applications makes it the most accessible of versions so far. The addition of CKEditor has made HTML editing a breeze for Drupal Theme loyalists across the world.
Introduction of Twig: PHP’s popular template engine “Twig”, known for its speed and flexibility, is part of Drupal 8, thus improving the security factor since PHP codes cannot be inserted directly into the templates. As Twig is known for its better logic and display segregation, this greatly enhances the overall effectiveness of Drupal 8.
Content Authoring is optimized: The editing feature has been completely revamped in Drupal 8 thus making Drupal Development a lot more easier. Content management has been given the necessary fillip as editors can now edit on the front –end of a site, thus eliminating the need to access its back-end.
The introduction of such awesome features is bound to make Drupal 8 a delight to work with, especially for the Drupal website development tech-teams who have been loyally attached to Drupal for long.
