How to Build a Directory site using Drupal 8

Over the years I’ve written a fair bit about Drupal and its modules, but all the videos and tutorials focused on a single module or topic.

So I decided to try something different and record a video where I build a whole website in a single go. I recorded the video in a single night and only stopped recording to get a drink.

In this video, which is over 3 hours long, I’ll teach you how to build a basic directory website. We’ll start right at the beginning by setting up a local Drupal site for this we’ll use DDEV-Local. Then we create content types, create a sub-theme, create a few custom views, a search page, media management functionality and so much more.

I’ve broken out the video into sections below with timecodes and extra resources. For the content below to make any sense you should follow along by watching the video.
