A few years ago I was just getting started learning Drupal 8 and decided to try to play around with the Twig theming templates. I barely understood Drupal at the time so that was a bit of a mistake. Not really understanding what I was looking at meant that I was overwhelmed quickly by the number of files and not understanding what I was looking at inside of them. I soon realized that if I was going to work on a theme, I needed to try to understand Twig, but without the complexity of Drupal surrounding it.

I was recently working on a client site in Drupal 8 that involved a multi-step form. The client is an insurance agency and wanted to have a quote form that users can fill out to start the process of getting a quote for insurance. Since the agency covers multiple kinds of insurance, this meant that the form needed to handle multiple types of insurance. I thought about doing multiple forms for simplicity, but realized that a single user might want to get a quote for more than one kind of insurance and asking them to fill out the same information multiple times would be frustrating and would be a negative user experience.

I haven’t had as much to talk about the past couple weeks because I’ve been working on learning more Javascript. After talking to some people and looking around I decided to start with CodeAcademy’s free online JS course. It was an interesting course to follow because it was purely about Javascript. It didn’t talk about using JS to talk to html or manipulate the DOM. It didn’t work with anything outside of a few popup alerts and the console.
