  • Georgia Tech, Drupal 8, and you!

    We have received numerous questions about Drupal 8 and Georgia Tech websites in the past few months. To help facilitate discussion and timelines for Drupal 8, here are some helpful dates, links, and resources to guide your planning, strategy, and timelines for Drupal 8 on campus!

    Drupal 8 theme development

    Georgia Tech's central Drupal 8 theme (and associated plugins) are managed via Institute Communications' Drupal 8 timeline

    Of note from the timeline:

    • Georgia Tech's A theme handles the display of header, footer Georgia Tech elements. 
    • Georgia Tech's B theme handles configurations and display of body styling, editor improvements, and Views styling. 

    Drupal 8 hosting & composer

    Drupal 8 brings some changes to web development best practices with the adoption and proliferation of composer.

    For campus units looking to use composer on webhosting, we strongly recommend metroplus. Metroplus is a command-line interface (CLI) tool allowing tools such as drush, composer, and git on webhosting.

    To learn more and join metroplus, please contact Michael Sheldon in the College of Sciences.

    What about Drupal 7?

    The Georgia Tech Drupal 7 theme will be updated to the new Georgia Tech gold in February 2019, per Institute Communications' Drupal 8 timeline
