Modifiers and Looks at DrupalCamp Ghent 2018
The better tools for content editors roadshow continues, with Petr Illek presenting at DrupalCamp Ghent.
As a developers we are offten asked by the clients to do small changes in the theme layer. "Please, can this pink be a bit more pinkier?" It is a tiny change in client eyes, but for us it includes multiple steps to go through the complete workflow and deploy process.
What if we allow the editors to do these changes for themselves? What if we push some of the responsibility back to them? I would like to introduce you to the Modifiers and Look contrib modules.
Modifiers allows you to apply style and behavior to certain elements on the page. Looks are sets of individual modifiers applied together to complete page according to various condition. Combining these two modules it is possible to apply new look to a section of the site for any theme reducing the time for implementing from days to hours.
