Drupal 8 is changing the way Drupal developers can build custom blocks within the code.
The Drupal 7 Way
Let's look at how we would define a block in Drupal 7. We would input code like this into the .module file of a custom module such as /sites/all/modules/custom/blog_example/blog_example.module
We know that developers and users alike are full of praise for Drupal 8, but what, if anything, is so desirable about it, so ‘must-have’?
What new features make it so ‘superior’ to, let’s say, Drupal 6 or 7?
Of course, those earlier iterations are still entirely workable, and can still be enhanced without the migration, but Drupal 8 is definitely something worth considering…for many reasons.
