Drupal Recipes Initiative Progress at DrupalCon Portland 2024

The recent session on the Drupal Recipes Initiative at DrupalCon Portland 2024 reveals significant progress and updates. The most notable announcement is the integration of Recipes into Drupal core, now available in versions 10.3 and 11, eliminating the need for patches. This development marks a major milestone for the initiative.

Senior backend engineers Robert Arias and Laura Johnson from Four Kitchens lead the session, explaining that Recipes now supports modules, themes, configurations, and content. The Config Actions API enables dynamic configuration alterations, enhancing flexibility and functionality. Adding content through recipes is now possible, using a structure similar to the default content module, facilitating comprehensive site setups.

Looking ahead, the initiative plans to introduce recipe unpacking to avoid dependency issues, develop a user interface for applying recipes, and host recipes on Drupal.org. These enhancements aim to further streamline the process for site builders and distribution maintainers.

A live demonstration during the session showcases the practical application and ease of use of recipes. The presenters install a Drupal site using a recipe, emphasizing the simplicity and efficiency of the process and highlighting how recipes can significantly reduce the time and effort required for site configuration.

Community contributions play a crucial role in advancing the initiative. The session concludes with a call to action, encouraging more community involvement. Documentation for recipe maintainers and end users is continually being developed, with ample opportunities for developers and testers to contribute.

The session is now available online on the Drupal Association’s YouTube channel. This session underscores the collaborative spirit of the Drupal community and the ongoing efforts to make Drupal more accessible and user-friendly through the Recipes Initiative.
