We're Drupalers who only recently started digging deep into CiviCRM and we're finding some really cool things! This series of videos is meant to share those secrets with other Drupalers, in case they come across a project that could use them. :-)

Most Drupalers at one time have had to deal with either sending e-mail newsletters directly from Drupal, or integrating with a 3rd party tool like Mailchimp or Constant Contact.

CiviCRM has built in e-mail newsletter functionality, and if you add to it the WYSIWYG e-mail builder Mosaico you can build really rich, responsive e-mail campaigns!

Watch the video here:

Some highlights from the video:

  • A sneak peek at Round Earth: our project that bundles Drupal 8 + CiviCRM
  • Drupal 8 + CiviCRM vs. "only" Drupal
  • A quick walk-through on how to quickly and easily create an email campaign
  • Plus, we mention a couple of current "gotchas" that could save you frustration!

It's great to see Drupalers embracing CiviCRM. I'm a freelancer supporting a few nonprofits and charities using CiviCRM, and explaining why they should use Drupal (especially Drupal 8) can be a struggle.

It would be great if you could show us how to install CiviCrm onto an excising D8.43 installation.

From my knowleg it should then be easy to port the data from a D7 Civicrm install to D8.

Great idea! Maybe for our next one :-)

Yes, it is! If you're on the latest version of CiviCRM in D7, and you put the same version on your D8 site, you just need to bring the database over and it'll just work. :-)

As far as I know, this is the way of doing it (look for the manual way): https://www.mydropwizard.com/blog/how-install-civicrm-drupal-8-and-why-c...
But that is from August, not sure if there is another way.

Yeah, those instructions still work! I've been periodically updating them for new versions of CiviCRM and changes to the installation process.

I had interpretted the original comment as asking for us to do a video of the install. Sorry if all you needed was the link to the article. Thanks, Yaazkal, for posting it!

Me too, but pointed to the instructions in the meantime.

Regards !
