  • Brief description:
    • Have you ever wanted to build a webform in Drupal and have the corresponding Next.js template automatically created for you? There’s a Next.js library for that.
  • Module name/project name:
  • Brief history
    • How old: created in Aug 2022 by Lauri Timmanee (lauriii), who listeners may know as the Drupal Core Product Manager, and one of the people leading the Starshot initiative
    • Versions available: 1.1.1
  • Maintainership
    • Test coverage
    • Documentation – Lengthy README and a tutorial on the Acquia Dev Portal
    • Number of open issues: 17 open issues, 3 of which are bugs
  • Usage stats:
    • 2,246 weekly downloads according to npmjs.com
  • Module features and usage
    • Using this library does require some setup on the Drupal side, including installing the Webform and Webform REST modules. There’s also an extra patch to install if you want to use any autocomplete fields, and some configuration needed for both the REST resources that will be used to exchange data, and the permissions for the account that will be used to retrieve and submit data
    • Out of the box, the library supports over 40 webform components, but you can also provide custom elements if you need something additional. The library also supports conditional logic, so fields can show or hide in the Next.js front end based on conditions defined in your Drupal backend
    • The library also provides front-end validation for email confirmation, date list, and datetime fields, but back end validation is also processed for every submission
    • There is a crowded field of headless CMS competitors, but I thought this library is a good example of the extra power and flexibility you get by using a robust, open source CMS like Drupal as the back end in your headless architecture
