Learning Drupal 8 has presented some challenges for front-end developers. While Twig is extremely easy to use, getting the data you need into your template and manipulating that data once they are available can be a challenge.
This session will cover:
Finding and tailing error logs
Lesser-known browser tricks
Interactive debugging with an IDE
Twig-specific debugging and variable inspection techniques
Setting up your local environment for debugging
Getting started with Drupal Console
Drupal modules that can help with development
Each of the 15+ techniques will be shown through video demonstration and references will be provided. I will be explicit about appropriate use-cases and any dependencies. This session is designed with front-end developers in mind but all are welcome.
This ever-evolving session has been presented at Drupal 8 Day, SANDcamp, and Stanford Drupal Camp, and DrupalCon Baltimore.
