Ponticlaro migrated Tulane University’s School of Architecture from an existing Drupal 7 website to Drupal 9, with an intuitive block editing experience, and Pentagram designed front-end. Ponticlaro also contributed a deployment pipeline from Docker-based local Drupal development to Pantheon’s servers through a git repository. All migrations are auromated at deploy time, with Drush and the Pantheon CLI.

Modernizing Drupal development with the powerful block editor and CSS class-based Design Systems

We obsess about tightening up Drupal’s extensive customization options, in order to find new, broadly reliable content functionality with existing community modules and front-end frameworks like Bootstrap 5 and Material Design, and then extending with proper identity, graphical detailing, colors, and look and feel.

By creating custom theme element style classes on top of a solid SASS foundation, which itself is built using variable-based grid systems with a bevy of “batteries included” features and well-tested responsive web utilities, Ponticlaro saves a lot of time, money and effort.

This modern approach has very few drawbacks, as all design ambitions can be achieved. Our usage of an open framework means more functionality, craftsmanship, and reliability for our clients. Over time this adds up, extending a website’s longevity.

We are also able to facilitate contributions to open source and the broader web community with this model, since we base our websites to be built to the community’s standard.

With regular releases and community support for compatibility and new features, Ponticlaro’s custom Drupal development pairs well with the open source Gutenberg block editor which is now emerging as a shared editor standard across WordPress, Drupal, and other popular website content management systems.

Custom CSS classes provide an easy and knowable way to build out diverse pages, posts, and content with small variations of common content block patterns: each block can now have a short, memorable label or set of reusable labels that then change its design, variation, color, and size. This text-based ability is the power of CSS-based design systems and websites.

And since the Gutenberg block editor is available for free through the community Gutenberg module, ongoing security testing and updates to this editor are provided by the community, so you won’t have to learn HTML or complex custom post types. Simply learn how to build out responsive drupal web development with reusable content blocks.
