osef Dabernig and Adam Juran delivered an interesting session at DrupalCon Barcelona on transition of building layouts from Drupal 7 to Drupal 8. 

They start with a review of the existing Drupal 7 contrib solutions like Context, Display Suite and Panels. You’ll get good insights into their status and equivalent frameworks in Drupal 8.

Layouts

So which approach do you take to build layouts in Drupal? 

Josef and Adam give a good overview of the two main approaches:

1. Coding -If you’re a front-end developer, you will most probably prefer this approach.

Leave the PHP to the back end guys!
 Clicking - That’s what site builders do. Display suite or Panels are very powerful tools indeed.
 
2. Clicking - That’s what site builders do. Display suite or Panels are very powerful tools indeed.

Yes, click all the things!

Watch the session of how you can build a simple layout, a landing page and a layout with variations using the 2 approaches mentioned above.
 
You’ll also see what’s new in Drupal 8 and how it compares to the options available in Drupal 7.
