D8 Webform & Webform Views

In this session, we'll talk about how the University of Colorado Boulder implemented D8 webform (YAMLform) in our first Drupal 8 site and the development questions and answers that ensued. 

  • 8x webform was previously known as YAMLform
  • Very active contributions (jrockowitz)
  • Views integration is a separate module (webform_views)
  • Webform nodes available as a submodule (webform_node)
  • Webform does not use Field API to store submissions
  • Webform itself does not integrate submissions with views

Since we were in the middle of changes being made on both webform and webform views--we ended up creating a custom module that converted submissions to nodes so that we could use vanilla Drupal 8 features to display the submissions.
