Styleguide Driven Development in Drupal

Theming in Drupal has many challenges. The biggest, in our experience at Singlebrook, is coordinating the creation of new site functionality and the CSS styling of the new markup, especially when multiple developers are working on a site.

In this session, I’ll discuss and demonstrate our brand new theming process using CSS/HTML components, some extensions to the styleguide module, and improved developer/themer communication. We’ll cover:

- How to style first and build functionality later.
- How to include a living styleguide, complete with your custom style components, on your site for review by your client.
- How to bend Drupal’s default markup to your will, using theme overrides, preprocess functions, and other techniques.
- Some emerging ideas on CSS organization and techniques to avoid the bad kinds of style cascades.
