Stuart Clark: Headless and the content authoring experience

Drupal is a great Content Management System, but some might argue that its content authoring experience is less than awesome. Reactive technologies, such as Vue and React, have opened up opportunities for more modern user experiences, and Drupals maturing JSON:API enables developers the use of these technologies through the decoupling of the presentation layer.

But decoupling doesn't have to be limited to the "presentation layer".

In this session Stuart will use DruxtJS ( to demonstrate the possibilities of decoupled content authoring, from inline editing to dedicated content authoring applications.
