Presentation: Twig and the new theme layer in Drupal 8

Presenter: Scott Reeves (Cottser), Drupal 8 theme system co-maintainer.

Drupal 8 will have a fancy new template engine (Twig) and a simplified theme layer (we hope). We'll show you the new template syntax (don't worry, it's easy) and walk through some of the major problems in Drupal 7 that have either already been solved in Drupal 8, or that we are still working hard on improving.

Things we're currently improving include:


Learn about all the changes in the Drupal 8 theme layer, and find out how you can get involved. We want Drupal 8 to be easy for theme developers and people new to Drupal, and also make more sense to the pros.

We still need your help, come learn what we're working on and how to get involved!

    Twig is great! I've been converting a dinosaur project into the Symfony2 framework with Twig and finding it very powerful. Excited to see it becoming a part of Drupal

    Enjoyed learning about what's coming up in Drupal 8 theme layer. Although I've become very comfortable in phpTemplate, I'm looking forward to exploring the benefits Twig introduces.
