Paragraphs Clean

New Drupal Modules - 16 January 2018 - 1:28pm

Tired of your database filling up with orphaned Paragraph entities?
This module is for you.

A single module file with 3 hook implementations, this module implements a naive, rudimentary approach to cleaning up paragraphs.

If you save a node (or any other entity) on which you've removed a reference to a paragraph entity, the paragraph entity will be deleted.

If you don't want to delete orphaned paragraphs, or if you're re-using paragraphs among different entities, then don't install this module.

Evolving Web: Drupal 8 Modules We ♥ for 2018

Planet Drupal - 16 January 2018 - 11:00am

With so many shiny new Drupal 8 modules emerging this year, we were hard pressed to pick our recommendations for 2018. It came down to asking ourselves: which modules are we excited about implementing in 2018… the ones that will make our projects better, faster, smarter brighter? Read on for our list of Drupal 8 modules we're excited about.

Configuration Split

The Drupal Configuration Split module makes Drupal 8 configuration management more customizable. This means you can set up some configurations that can be edited on the live site, without interfering with your configuration management workflow. Instead of importing and exporting the whole set of a site’s configuration, the module enables you to define sets of configuration to export to different directories that automatically merge again when they are imported.

Content Workflow

If you’ve shied away from implementing complicated workflows in the past, you’ll enjoy how the Content Workflow module makes it easy to set up a simple workflow. This core module enables you to streamline the content publication process by defining states for content (such as draft, unpublished and published) and then manage permissions around these states.


The Deploy content staging module makes it easier to stage and preview content for a Drupal site. It’s often used to deploy content from one Drupal site to another. Redesigned for Drupal 8, the new version is based on the Multiversion and Replication modules, making it more efficient and flexible.

Drupal Commerce

The new full release of Drupal Commerce has us very excited to start building ecommerce sites in Drupal 8. Fully rebuilt for Drupal 8, the new Drupal Commerce module doesn’t presume a specific ecommerce business model, enabling developers to customize the module to suit a merchant’s needs.


The JSON API module formats your JSON requests and responses to make them compliant with the JSON API Specification. This module is the key to setting up Drupal as a backend so you can implement the font-end with React or your front-end platform of choice. Metatag

Ramp up your SEO with structured data that helps Google categorize and display your pages. The Metatag module allows you to add and validate structured data as JASON LD, one of Google’s preferred data formats.

UI Patterns

If you’re looking for a way to implement an ‘atomic design’ in Drupal the Drupal UI Patterns project is a nice option. It consists of six modules that allow you to define and expose UI patterns as Drupal plugins. You can use them as drop-in templates for all entity types — paragraphs, views, field groups and more.


The Drupal webform module has a new release candidate for Drupal 8. A ton of work has been put into the module; it’s like a whole form-building application inside your Drupal site. Quickly integrate forms into any Drupal 8 website. enables you to build, publish and duplicate webforms. You can also manage and download submissions, and send confirmations to users.

Which Drupal 8 modules are doing it for you?

We’d love to hear about which Drupal 8 modules your team is excited about. Leave us a comment.
