As you might know, we have started an initiative to collect funds for porting the Rules module to Drupal 8: #d8rules. We are in the middle of our crowd funding campaign on Drupalfund and development has already started. In this post, I'll share an update on the development status of Rules 8.x and talk about what's next for the #d8rules initiative.
Rules 8.x development now has proper meta issues in the issue queue on drupal.org.
Discussion for porting Rules to Drupal 8 has already started back in 2011. Since then, the focus was primarily on getting core ready by improving the entire entity system, see Entity Field API initiative.
As we are kicking off the #d8rules initiative, we have specified architecture & roadmap. Please join the dicussion at the following meta issues:
Wolfgang Ziegler (fago), our Klaus Purer (klausi) and me had a great time last week during Drupal Dev Days Szeged. We took the opportunity of connecting with 350 Drupal enthusiasts to invite some of them to pitch the #d8rules project into the camera.
