The one big question I get asked over and over these days is: "How is Drupal 8 doing?"

It's understandable. Drupal 8 is the first new version of Drupal in five years and represents a significant rethinking of Drupal.

So how is Drupal 8 doing? With less than half a year since Drupal 8 was released, I'm happy to answer: outstanding!

Recently I had a customer ask me how to tell Drupal 8 to display certain blocks conditionally, based on whether or not the node page being viewed referenced certain taxonomy terms. In Drupal 7 I would have recommended the Context module for this, but as it’s not yet ready for Drupal 8 I had to go looking for other options.

My search led me fairly quickly to the brand-new Block Visibility Groups module, which aims to provide the same sort of conditional block visibility functionality that Context provides, but in a manner that integrates more closely with the core Block UI. It works well, but doesn’t natively provide support for basing visibility off of node field data (such as taxonomy term references). However, since Block Visibility Groups uses the core D8 Condition plugin type to define its conditions, all that’s needed is to implement a custom plugin to get the desired behavior. Here’s how it works, from start to finish:

This is Part 2 of an interview with Will Eisner, Senior Director, Product at Acquia. Will’s primary focus is on Acquia Cloud Site Factory, which helps organizations create and manage many sites, from a dozen to thousands.

In Part 1, Will discussed how companies often discover, to their dismay, that they are running hundreds of Web sites, on many different platforms. In this section of the interview, Will describes how Site Factory addresses that problem.  

The interview was conducted by DC Denison, Senior Editor, Technology, at Acquia, who is represented by the letter “Q.”
