Drupal’s Journey: CMS to Content Management Platform

Content Management

A new blog post published by Chapter Three highlights Drupal journey from a content management system (CMS) to a content management platform. This transition made possible with a focus on API-first development. Dries Buytaert announced the introduction of an API-first initiative for Drupal 8 in 2018, enabling all of Drupal's features to be accessible via APIs.

This move addressed the drawbacks of managing everything within a single code base and the need for specialized technical expertise. The article highlights Next-Drupal.org project as a way to leverage Next.js to enhance Drupal's front-end capabilities and expand the possibilities for digital experiences. Embracing the content management platform model offers advantages such as composable architecture, easier talent availability for Next.js, and simplified back-end infrastructure.

The blog post also mentions the complexities and costs associated with front-end upgrades and suggests focusing on architecting a content management platform during the upgrade process to streamline the transition. It concludes by highlighting Drupal's transformation into an API-first platform and its enduring position within the open-web composable stack, solidifying its role as a content management platform.
