Theme development

This is a special interest group dedicated to improving and expanding the Drupal theme system including theme functions and templates, CSS, markup, and how contrib modules add in their functions, CSS, and markup.

for example, we'll take stock of the location and number of CSS files and discuss if the architecture can be improved through emerging frameworks like Object Oriented CSS.

We will consider the questions "What do themers need from Core in terms of CSS? Module developers? SEO specialists?" and "What's new in CSS? What does Drupal support? What's the roadmap for CSS support?"

Making learnability a priority in Drupal.

Drupal is growing up, and with its maturity comes a complexity that is making it harder and harder to learn. We have initiatives that focus on making the user interfaces easier to use, but we have not been paying attention to how improvements to core have affected new contributors, and their ability to learn how to code for Drupal. This wiki is be a place where we can track and discuss how to keep Drupal coding easy to learn.

(This idea comes out of the Engineering for the 80% talk given at Drupal Camp Colorado, and the Bay Area Drupal Camp in 2011.)

Designing Drupal's Mobile Navigation

The first problem we need to solve is how users get around Drupal's interface on devices with small screens and touch screens. See the D8MUX road map.

Let's do some brainstorming and prototyping over how we get this good on mobile.

What do we need?

  • Simple
  • Consistent
  • Finger friendly
  • Complementary - The navigation can't upstage the main purpose of the page or task.

Current pain points

One page many purposes

Blueskying Drupal 8 Mobile Solutions

Building mobile solutions encompasses a large problem space: native apps, HTML5 web apps, responsive design, device capability detection, mobile/desktop switching, front-end performance, etc.

I'm seeing lots of really interesting contrib modules and themes tackling mobile problems in Drupal 7.

Since Dries has already indicated that mobile will be an important aspect of Drupal 8, my question is:

what do you think Drupal 8 core (not contrib) should provide for mobile solutions out of the box?
