Drupal 8, the most recent version of Drupal, has many improvements for all users, including Drupal web designers and front-end developers. For web designers, “ease of use” has been redefined by Drupal, enabling them to create appealing and mobile-friendly web experiences.

Our Ultimate Guide to Drupal 8 eBook gives an overview of the new features in Drupal 8, and shows how Drupal 8 will make Drupal web designers’ lives easier.

Drupal 8 has tons of front-end improvements, including:

  • Various front-end libraries, creating the ability to build mobile-friendly and rich front-end apps
  • Drupal 8 output has been converted to semantic HTML5 markup
  • Responsive by design, Drupal 8 includes capabilities such as mobile-friendly tables, toolbars, themes, and images
  • The PHPTemplate based theme has been replaced by Twig, giving Drupal website designers the ability to use HTML/CSS knowledge to modify markup (all without having PHP expertise!)
  • Features such as CSS and JavaScript aggregation are already turned on, bettering performance and increasing page load times
  • The ability to use your own admin and drop screens as well as modal dialogs, which was previously part of the Chaos tool suite (ctools) module
