Content Migration Between Remote D8 Sites Using Divide and Rule Policy of British


Session prerequisites are :

Basic understanding of Drupal 8 site building.

Session details

How many of you are worried about how to migrate nodes, lets say 2000 nodes or more, from one Drupal 8 instance to another? How many of you are a bit kind of lazy person? Well this question I'm asking because, a lazy guy will think twice or thrice atleast to write a script for exporting nodes from one D8 instance and importing it to another one. This session is specifically designed for those who impatiently want things to get done at quickest without writing a huge bunch of scripts by investing time and mind :P.

So, here introducing some quick and easy ways for nodes migration where the concept basically built upon the "Divide and Rule Policy" introduced by British so far in India in 1947. The same policy will demonstrate a wonderful way to get all the nodes cloned into your desired instance, assuming the content type configurations would remain same.

This session will cover up the use cases and real life implementation of some of the best contributed modules introduced by Drupal community. Further, demonstrate how composer makes our life so much easier by minimizing the glitches of dependencies for installing modules and their corresponding libraries. Below listed down some modules around which we are going to take a roller coaster.

  • Content sync
  • Views data export
  • content import
  • Drupal 8 migration (source)
