Introduction to Backdrop

  • Todd Tomlinson


Backdrop ( ) is a web content management system with its roots deeply intertwined with Drupal, the market-leading open source web content management system. Backdrop was created by a team who believed the focus of Drupal was shifting toward a platform tailored for large-scale enterprise, leaving behind the thousands of nonprofits, small to medium-sized businesses, educational institutions, and organizations that are delivering comprehensive web sites on a budget. If you are in one of those organizations that has an investment in Drupal 6 or 7 and are weighing your options of migrating to Drupal 8 or looking for alternatives such as Backdrop, then this book was written for you. Backdrop promises to deliver a familiar solution that is less complex than Drupal 8 and is based on the foundation of Drupal that thousands of developers have experience with.
