Traditional Menus and Decoupled Architecture: Upcoming Talk with Brian Perry
Thanks to the recent Decoupled Menus initiative, Drupal users can now use the same Drupal backend menu interface to build and update the navigation structure for their decoupled frontend applications.
TheDropTimes (TDT) recently spoke with Brian Perry, an expert in decoupled Drupal and coordinator of the decoupled menu initiative, to gain insights into his experiences leading the initiative and the benefits it brings to those building headless Drupal websites. Brian works as a Senior Technology Consultant (Staff Engineer) at Pantheon.
For content editors, decoupled menus offer a way to customize menus using the Drupal admin interface and see the results reflected on the frontend site. The functionality is beneficial for sites with complicated hierarchies or those closely tied to frequently updated content.
Stay tuned for the complete interview, where Brian Perry will talk about a new feature as part of the Decoupled Menus initiative, the concept of decoupled menus, the main benefits of using the new Linkset API endpoint, and so on. The interview will be published on TDT on the 4th of February, 2023.
