[Drupal Europe] Elevate your Drupal 8 application with ReactJS

Drupal 8 is a stellar CMS which is more than capable of standing on its own. But when it comes to building app-like websites, JavaScript frameworks have taken the web by storm, and React is leading the pack.

In this course, we will give a section of our Drupal 8 website a boost by building a ReactJS App.

We'll modify an existing Drupal 8 website to prepare it for integration with a decoupled application. This portion of the training provides you with knowledge applicable to a variety of external frameworks: React, Vue, Angular, even Alexa and Google home.

We'll then build and launch a React app from start to finish. We will set it up to display data from our existing Drupal 8 website as well as to create (and POST) data back to our Drupal 8 website.

We don't want to lose many of the benefits that Drupal core and contrib provide us with, so we will only decouple select pages and functionality using the React app we will build.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Learn to create a React Web App
  • Learn to set up Headless Drupal using Drupal 8
  • Create a React web app which communicates with a Drupal 8 task management website


  • Learn when & why to use decoupled Drupal 8, and why React is a great choice
  • (initial set up) Install pre-built Drupal 8 website
  • Modify Drupal 8 website to prepare it for headless integration 
    • Note: Website will not be 'fully' decoupled, will only decouple one content type
  • Create React App
  • Integrate React App with Drupal 8 website (displaying data)
  • Post data to Drupal 8 website from React App

Who Will Gain the Most From This Training?:

  • Note: Must know JS or PHP to participate. Code & Training formatted to be accessible to developers, not exclusively for JS developers.
