Time: Thursday 18th May 13:45-14:15
Room: Track 1
Track: Web Tools & Technologies

Webforms are an essential part of many Drupal websites, and they play a critical role in facilitating user interactions. However, standard Drupal webforms can be limited in terms of flexibility and customization, which can impact the user experience. Partial decoupling is a technique that can help enhance the user experience by allowing more customization of webforms.

In this presentation, we will explore how partially decoupled Drupal webforms can improve user experience. We will start by discussing the basics of webforms and decoupling. Then, we will dive into the benefits of partial decoupling and how it can be used to enhance user experience. We will explore several examples of how partial decoupling can be used to create custom webform elements and improve the look and feel of webforms.

We will also cover some of the technical aspects of partial decoupling, including the use of Drupal's REST API and JavaScript frameworks like React and Vue.js. Finally, we will discuss some best practices for implementing partially decoupled Drupal webforms and potential pitfalls to avoid.

By the end of this presentation, you will have a clear understanding of how partial decoupling can enhance the user experience of Drupal webforms and be equipped with the knowledge to start implementing it in your own projects.
