In this talk we’ll describe how we solved four key challenges in moving from a Drupal 7 site to a decoupled website using Drupal 8, node, and react. Some of these challenges include: implementing content previews using the front-end, URL handling responsive image handling, and building flexible landing pages. We’ll talk about how using a decoupled architecture translated to specific benefits. Attendees should have exposure to Drupal and modern front-end frameworks like node/react. Attendees will learn how to overcome major hurdles on the road to a decoupled Drupal solution.
