The Slice Template: Design principles, Dev Options & Content Curation
This talk will EXPLAIN what the Slice Template is, different development tactics for creating it, and challenges we’ve seen in crafting content for it.
WHAT IS THE SLICE TEMPLATE?
The Slice Template is kind of like a layer cake. It’s a design structure that enables site authors to create web pages out of modular, horizontal components that span the width of the browser. Popularized by responsive design, this pattern has become a web standard. That’s because it can support a myriad of content.
There are two popular methods of building the Slice Template in Drupal. The Paragraphs Module or ECK. Zakiya Khabir will break down the differences between the approaches and why you may want to pick one or another.
While this solution is powerful and flexible, we’ve seen some clients stumble when creating content for this format. We’ll share struggles and wins and open the floor for some group discussion around this topic.
