For my Blocks & Layouts presentation at our local Drupal Austria Meetup, Drupal Dev Days Szeged & recently at DrupalCamp Donetsk, I have reached out to the community to gather some data. 60 participants provided their input on favorite Drupal 7 layout tools and what they expect from Drupal 8. It's time to share the results:
Which approaches are you using for realizing layouts in Drupal 7?
This is my favorite blocks & layouts related module
What are you most excited about or wish for Drupal 8
I have posted some further thoughts on Blocks & Layouts in D8 at my Drupal Dev Days Szeged wrap-up, and will cross-post a link to the survey results on the g.d.o survey post. Also check out my slides, download the raw survey data and let us hear your thoughts.
To many layout modules are increasing the drupal learning cure
One of the biggest reason why drupal takes so long to learn is because there so many way to editing a layout.
Instead of learning about just one tool to do the job. You have to learn about 5 different layout tools!
Then you have to have good understand when to use which type of tool...
With so many different screen sizes now to design for we
need one main layout module that can be extend by plugin modules.
Not loads of different layout doing the same type of job
