What is Decoupled Drupal 8 or Headless Drupal? Updates & Changelog
Decoupled or headless Drupal; if you are unaware of any such term, you first need to plug-in your basic knowledge with the next-level of computer technology that makes the cut in the 21st century.
What is Drupal?
Powering many high-end sites that are also the busiest in the world, Drupal exists as a content management software for content, community, and commerce. The open-source web content management software is very famous and vividly used by people in majority due to the various advantages like – easy authoring, reliable performance, and excellent security features, which come installed in the standard and the most basic version, that is available worldwide.
Apart from flexibility – modularity being another core principle – gives Drupal the fame and recognition, which made it possible to shift gears and move towards headless Drupal or Drupal 8 implementation.
Drupal 8 or Headless Drupal
With simplification of online content for all the writers, editors, and users at the other end, the launch of Drupal 8 was both revolutionary as well as historic considering there’s still scope left for versions to simplify the process of sharing, updating, and innovating content in one way or the other.
Drupal 8, started by asking the basic questions but had been enhanced to move-over such petty obstacles and charge solutions, which indeed were solving the modern-day issues that users face from time to time and from process to process.
Features That Evolved with Drupal 8
When Flexibility meets Simplicity – Drupal 8 – was introduced!
Taking the digital experience for small and medium sized businesses to the next level, Drupal 8 makes the framework easy to understand, flexible, simple, and an everyday task for anyone who’s new to the whole prospect. Now with a wide range of web applications and basic websites you can also make API driven monoliths with the new version of Drupal.
What else? Let us elaborate further on ‘New Updates’ released along with Drupal 8 -:
- There’s a distinction between Drupal 8 and other CMS Interfaces – when you make a news website, you have to manually install plug-ins for the most-read/most-popular section to flourish on the homepage. But if you’d have a Drupal 8 CMS, you can accomplish the task quickly and without the need of writing a custom plug-in from the scratch.
- Dynamic way of presenting content: Yes, Drupal 8 doesn’t just stick to a single ‘node’ or ‘element’ but creatively gives you the power to present the content of your website in multiple ways. By treating different types of contents as mere variations, the CMS gives meaningful structure to every bit of information that’s going to exist on the web-pages.
- The system or process layering is carried out in a way that no one layer affects the processing or working of the other. From Layer 1 (Data: Nodes, etc.) to Layer 2 (Modules) to Layer 3 (Blocks and Menus) to Layer 4 (User Permissions) and finally Layer 5 (Templates) the dynamic layering help users with a clear flow of direction from bottom to top and not the opposite.
