Layout Builder, A Paragraphs Killer?

Oomph has been using Paragraphs to deliver “flexible content” areas and content layouts for our clients. With the release of Drupal 8.7 and the addition of Layout Builder, Oomph has begun to incorporate the new Layout Builder functionality into our websites. Learn the advantages of Layout Builder over Paragraphs and how you can successfully implement Layout Builder on your next project.

Some topics covered are:

  • How to setup Layout Builder for static and flexible content templates.
  • How to setup components (blocks) to be added to your Layout.
  • How to add custom user-selected configuration to your components (blocks) as classes.
  • Useful contribute modules to use with Layout Builder.
  • Future Roadmap of Layout Builder

Senior UX Engineer

Hi, I’m Kathy, and I’ve been working with Drupal for over 10 years. As a UX Engineer here at Oomph, I am focused on front-end development and site building and I collaborate with the back-end engineering team and the design team. I am constantly thinking about accessibility and test solutions in multiple browsers as well as screen readers and automated tools.

Prior to working at Oomph, I worked for a small Drupal shop in Rhode Island where I was the lead Drupal Developer on projects for companies such as Nantucket Wine Festival, Newport Film, Lifespan Hospital Group, Malcom Technologies, and The Jane Pickens Theater & Event Center. When I’m not at work, I like to spend time with my family and my two cross-eyed cats. I also enjoy reading, traveling, and spending as much time at the beach as I can.
