Speedrun: Build a Website with Panels, Media, and More in 45 Minutes

Lightning is an open source starter kit and framework that helps developers tap into the richness of key D8 functionality, and build sites and experiences faster.

The Future of Acquia Lightning for Drupal 8

At DrupalCon the team presented a session where we built an authoring experience live. This was the result of months of planning and practice. In this webinar, we will deconstruct each step in the build.

The broad concept for the experience we built during the speedrun was a product launch site with social feeds, CRM connected lead capture forms, authoring workflows for content marketers and campaign specific landing pages.

Speedrun steps that we will deconstruct:

  • Develop a brand specific theme based on bootstrap using a css styleguide
  • Configure a content approval workflow for content marketers and editors
  • Configure new panelizer layouts, set defaults for editors and long-scroll landing pages using panels
  • Create views-based social feeds, with curation based on a taxonomy

We will also explain how we could have expanded the authoring experience with the Workspace Preview System, a features set released as experimental with the newest version of Lightning.
