Drupal 8 - info hook to plugin
Click here to watch Drupal 8 - info hook to plugin.
Drupal 8 core has removed many of the "info" hooks and converted them to plugins.
This session will be a practical discussion of how plugins work and how to upgrade your module to Drupal 8 if it used one of these hooks that's been converted to a plugin. In addition I'll cover the essentials of implementing your own plugin if your module previously used an "info" hook and you want to join the new paradigm.
There are definite advantages - including never implementing one of these hooks by mistake again when you're writing a function in your module.
