Drupal and GraphQL with React and Apollo

Building an app that displays a list of articles in Drupal in the traditional way is a straightforward task - meaning that we use Drupal for everything: backend configuration and data storage as well as frontend (usually twig in Drupal 8).

However, doing the same thing in a decoupled configuration, where we use for example Drupal for backend and data storage, and React as frontend, is not that easy.

To help you with this, this blog post aims to show how you can successfully build that.

Introduction to GraphQL

Amazee Labs is heavily invested in exploring and adopting new techniques and technologies. For nearly two years we’ve been openly exploring Decoupled Drupal. Among the things that we’ve researched during this time, React and GraphQL certainly stand out as two of the sharpest new tools in our ever growing toolbox. Based on these, we’ve since established a full application architecture and infrastructure.

In the upcoming weeks leading up to DrupalCon Vienna, we want to share our experiences and learnings in a series of blog posts.

Nested Paragraphs translation

Looking back, translating content in Drupal 7 wasn't a straightforward task. It involved enabling a number of modules to do all the translations properly. And in Drupal 8, the Multilingual Initiative took big steps forward to enhance multilingual support for users.

Since its introduction in May, 2011, huge efforts by everyone involved resulted in hundreds of issues resolved and many great improvements have since been made that now drastically simplifies the site building process.
