Using Subtree Splits to spread Drupal into everything


Just as Symfony, Laravel, and other popular PHP projects have split their code into smaller peices, ready for consumption, Drupal can start doing the same. With the help of the Drupal infrastructure team, I have proposed that maintain subtree splits of Drupal core (or any decoupled component).

Doing so allows others to consume Drupal core (or Drupal components) via Composer, much in the same way Drupal has done with Symfony.

In this session, I'll explain:

  • How other projects maintain splits of their projects
  • How should maintain splits of Drupal
  • How others can use these splits in their own projects
  • The benefits the community can get from offering these splits
