Node Template Selector

New Drupal Modules - 18 July 2017 - 11:25am

Node Template Selector (adapted from Template Picker) gives content creators a list of templates to choose from as they create nodes. The templates in this list are auto-discovered in your site's default theme through a simple naming convention (node--content-type--tp*.html.twig).

The ability to pick templates is used to assign page templates in Wordpress, and this module is a port of similar functionality to Drupal.

One million downloads, one million thanks

It feels great to build a Drupal tool that has achieved more than 1 million downloads and helps people from different places around the world to create, build and deploy Drupal applications.

I hope that taking you through my experience working on the Drupal Console will motivate you become part of a project, collaborate or take the first step. So here are the most important milestones.

The Beginning: The commit that started all

After been organizing a few hangouts and trying to decide to start a contributed project related to Drupal 8, David Flores pushed the first commit to the project repo. It was just a file but every journey, even those that impact many people, start with one single step. That file marked the beginning of Drupal Console.
