Live Component Guide, Part 2: Drupal 8

A while ago we introduced a Live Component Guide to our corporate website that gives our designers and content creators and quick way to lay out content on new and existing pages. It’s worked out great so far and has generated quite a bit of interest. A couple months old now, that initial blog post explaining why we did it and how it works has had over 400 views and the recorded demonstration on YouTube has been watched for more than 1500 minutes. Not bad considering it’s a very Drupal specific, niche post.

While I was working on our corporate site components, others at Acro Media were working away on adding similar components to our internal Drupal 8 framework. Our corporate website is currently running on Drupal 7, and so, in some of the feedback that we received, people naturally wanted to see an example of the Live Component Guide in Drupal 8. After all, that’s the latest version of the Drupal platform that all new Drupal sites are being built using it.

I’m happy to announce now that those components have made their way into Acro Media’s Drupal Commerce demo site, Urban Hipster! Want to see it? I know you do. Check out the video demonstration below or go straight to the Urban Hipster’s Live Component Guide and take look for yourself.
