Convivial gives editors and designers the ability to easily build attractive, flexible Drupal 8 websites. It exposes the best bits of Drupal and handles the complexity users don't want to see.
The team at Morpht have been working away at a starter kit since early 2016. We have been striving to build a rock solid Drupal 8 distribution which will enable the rapid development of Drupal 8 websites. We have taken a component driven approach to development to ensure that the system can be easily extended and that site builders are supported in adding the features they need. We have also focused on the needs of site owners and have innovated with a looks and modifiers approach which allows for the rapid development of new skins for sites.
Modifiers and Looks
Modifiers and looks are new concepts in the Drupal community. They combine together to form a system which allows for extremely rapid development of new appearances of you site. This makes them perfect for use on subsections, microsites, groups, marketing sites and site factory arrangements.
Look: A way of collecting and storing configuration for different modifiers. Users can select and configure Modifiers to apply to different elements on the page. A look sits on top of a theme and augments the appearance of that theme.
Look Mappings: The look modifiers are mapped down into elements on the page via look mappings. This gives the site builder the ability to target any element and modify it as they wish.
A range of modifiers have been developed thus far including:
- image fx
- background image
- background video
- background parallax
These modifiers combine to allow for a lot of creative flexibility.
