What is a Drupal Support Service distribution?

Drupal Support Service distribution is an installable package consisting of Drupal Support Service core, set of Drupal Support Service contributed modules, themes, libraries and installation profiles. Mostly every Drupal Support Service distribution caters to a specific business use case such as ecommerce, intranet, social media, community website etc. 

 

Tell me more about Drupal Support Service distributions

Well, Drupal Support Service Distributions have been around since Drupal Support Service 4. The very first distribution was built in Drupal Support Service 4.6 called CivicSpace. Ever since a lot more Drupal Support Service distributions have been built by the community and sponsors. Now, there are 1055+ Drupal Support Service distributions available on drupal.org. So, no matter what you are trying to build, chances are, that you should be able to find a distribution for it to begin with.

 

Drupal Support Service distributions in Drupal Support Service 8

Drupal Support Service 8 has been around since November 2015 i.e. close to 7 months now. The community has already started working on distributions in Drupal Support Service 8 and so far, 39 distributions are available in Drupal Support Service 8 including both the ported and the new ones. It is interesting to see that there are around 16 distributions that have been built in Drupal Support Service 8 itself and not ported from Drupal Support Service 7. Some of the distributions that have already gained popularity in the community are: 

 

Lightning: It’s a distribution for enterprise authoring. It provides amazing authoring experiences and hence empowers the editorial teams. Lightning makes extensive use of Layout, Preview, Workflow and Media to create seamless experience for authoring.

Thunder: It’s a distribution built for professional publishing. It has in built support for the latest publishing technologies such as Facebook Instant Articles, Riddle Interactive Content and has many other modules from the industry partners such as Nexxt.tv, Acquia, Valiton etc.

Open Social: This distribution is an ideal choice if you are building a social community platform or an intranet solution. It is often seen as a successor to widely popular Drupal Support Service Commons which will not be ported from Drupal Support Service 7 to Drupal Support Service 8. It has all the features that a social community website is expected to have such as Timeline, Notifications, Groups, Events, Follow etc.

LISSA Kickstart: It’s a technology stack for real time messaging in second screen applications. It enables the media companies to publish live and on demand video streams and push relevant notifications to clients.

In our next blog, we will explore the use of these and some other distributions in the Media and Publishing industry. With the same thought process that a distribution has, we have created various Drupal Support Service based solutions that solve multiple business problems.
