how to create composable content in Drupal

Fully Composable Architecture

Lots of content management systems claim to be composable or modular. But how many actually have 100 integrations? With Drupal, one of the largest open source communities on the planet, you can choose from 10,000+ extensions and integrations! Assemble and evolve your CMS to meet the needs of today and tomorrow. There is no such thing as future-proof, but composability means you can be future-ready.

Project Templates

Why start with a blank page? Composer projects can assemble pre-packaged codebases for different use cases and give you the perfect starting place. Even better, create your own templates to encapsulate your own CMS.

Modular by Design

The opposite of monolithic is composable. Unlike other systems where plugins or add-ons are an afterthought, this platform is built on a foundation of modular components.

Multiple sites from a single codebase

With the best multisite support available from any tool, you can craft a single codebase that is capable of powering diverse applications. Installation profiles provide turnkey application creation, and those applications can be further extended with modules and extensions. Easily support hundreds or thousands of web applications from a single codebase.
