Nuxt.js is an intuitive, Vue.js based framework. It's the perfect choice for the frontend of our decoupled Drupal stack using custom elements markup.
When it comes to decoupling, it turns out there are many options on how to decouple. Not only are there many technology choices in choosing the right frontend framework and APIs involved, the questions become also more foundational: Which system should be in charge for handing different aspects of the applicaiton, e.g. routing, placing blocks or authentication?

The first Drupal IronCamp took place in the beautiful capital of the Czech Republic in Prague at the end of November 2016. More than 200 attendees from 27 countries took part in four days of sprints and two days of sessions.
Last October Drupal Austria organized a full day long free workshop for getting started with Drupal 8 in Vienna. drunomics sponsored the event and I had the favour of presenting on Coding with Drupal 8. Meanwhile, Drupal Austria has got the recordings of the workshop up, the result: 4 hours of high-quality Drupal 8 training material in German.
Today is a big day for the #d8rules initiative! Our crowd funding campaign was successfully funded and reached 100 % on Drupalfund. We really want to thank all you great 125+ supporters from the community: together you made this happen. Fago & Klausi may continue with the progress that has been made already for porting Rules to Drupal 8 now and we are looking forward to gather additional funds in order to make sure that all 3 milestones can be reached in time!
Today, I've the pleasure to introduce the #d8rules initative, our combined effort to get the Rules module ported to Drupal 8 in time!
Drupal 8 is coming...
Fortunately, the first beta of Drupal 8 is coming closer so it's time to make sure all the modules are ported and ready for Drupal 8. Unfortunately, the Rules module - my long term number one contributed module - is about to be left behind. I've worked a lot on Drupal 8 to get critical Entity API improvements like the new Entity Field API (called Entity Property API at the time of the introduction) as well as the new Typed data API done. Of course, the work on core is time intensive, not "done" yet and won't stop - so there is not a lot contribution time left for my contributed modules. :/
So where is Rules for Drupal 8 now?
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.
