Lee Rowlands recently authored a blog post exploring the integration of the new Navigation module with Drupal's Layout Builder. The Navigation module utilizes Layout Builder to manage the navigation toolbar, which has sparked discussions within the Drupal community, notably on Slack. The module transitioned from a contrib project to a core component in Drupal versions 10.3.0 and 11.x, during which it underwent significant revisions, including the removal of 4,000 lines of code while retaining similar functionalities. This shift aimed to eliminate dependencies on themes, which was a limitation in the previous block system, allowing for more flexible block placement. The integration is part of broader efforts to enhance Layout Builder's usability, aligning with initiatives like Experience Builder and Dashboard, which also leverage Layout Builder for improved site management.
