SitePoint PHP Blog:
Drupal 8 Theming Revamped – Updates and New Features
Aug 11, 2015 @ 11:08:28

The SitePoint PHP blog has a tutorial posted introducing some of the updates to the theme functionality in Drupal 8 including some new features.

If you are a Drupal developer who has dabbled in theming older versions of Drupal (5, 6, 7) you understand why frustration is the trusty companion of any Drupal themer. Luckily, though, Drupal 8 promises so many improvements that even the Angry Themer is happy for a change. It is only natural we jump in and start looking at what these improvement are.

They talk about the changes in:

  • creating a module and defining its theme
  • that Twig is now the template library
  • updates to template handling
  • how to debug themes/templates
  • working with assets and libraries

Each topic includes a summary of the changes or more information about the topic including links to other resources with more information about each.
