Why Drupal is Preferred While Creating Media and News Websites?

Providing multi-channel experience is one of the prime challenges faced by media & entertainment industries. Check out the challenges that can be accomplished with the help of the Drupal framework.

A plan for media management in Drupal 8. Today, when you install Drupal 8.2, the out-of-the-box media handling is very basic. For example, you can upload and insert images in posts using a WYSIWYG editor, but there is no way to reuse files across posts, there is no built-in media manager, no support for "remote media" such as YouTube videos or tweets, etc. While all of these media features can be added using contributed modules, it is not ideal. This was validated by my "State of Drupal 2016 survey" which 2,900 people participated in; the top two requested features for the content creator persona are richer image and media integration and digital asset management (see slide 44 of my DrupalCon New Orleans presentation). This led me to propose a "media initiative" for Drupal 8 at DrupalCon New Orleans. Since then a dedicated group of people worked on a plan for the Drupal 8 media initiative.

I'm happy to share that we now have good alignment for that initiative. Problem statement The current plan Expected timeline and call for help. Best websites with Social Media integration.

Media in Drupal 8 Initiative [#2786785] Background and Problem Drupal core is an amazing content structuring tool with options to give rich structure to basically everything in the system. While Drupal core includes basic file and image support, it is a far cry from what a modern web system should support out of the box for media handling. External media cannot be embedded easily in core and media cannot be reused. Due to very limited functionality provided by core it is also very hard for contrib to build on top of it.

Proposed resolution Provide a three-pronged implementation approach to media solutions, that involves three distinct groupings of functionality targeted at different use cases: Media Essentials, Extras and Extend. Involve new contributors to help existing media team members to create a Media Essentials suite as a minimum viable solution that provides a basic group of media functionality in Drupal 8 core by 8.3's release candidate.
