Migrating into Layout Builder

Christopher Wells

Layout Builder has propelled Drupal's content editing experience to new heights. Keeping pace with the drag and drop builders of other modern web applications, a whole world of opportunities to leverage Atomic Design patterns and component-based design is in the hands of the content team.

But what happens when you are upgrading a site and plan to use Layout Builder override pages for much of your site? You need a way to migrate content into Layout Builder in a way that allows for old content to exist in a new model.

In this session, we will look at how Redfin built a bridge from WYSIWYG body fields into a text component in a Layout Builder section, and migrated University of New England's Drupal 7 site content into a new paradigm. Along the way, we will dig into the Layout Builder code, and the custom migration code that was written to support this.
