Topics

Over the past two years, the media landscape in Drupal 8 has seen a significant evolution. Much of the contrib code that was previously needed to support media management and usage has been replaced by Drupal core functionality. This session will demonstrate how to take advantage of these new core features. (A handful of core patches and contrib modules are still needed, but don't worry - those will be covered, too.)

Key topics include:

  • Media entities
  • View modes for media entities
  • oEmbed provider management
  • Custom oEmbed providers
  • Media integration with CKEditor
  • Media usage tracking
