Drupal 8 migration log - Part 1 - intro, the front page

Most of the information I have come across about migrating from Drupal 6 to Drupal 8 is about migrating content, however before tackling this problem another one must be solved, maybe it is obvious and hence understated, so let's spell it out loud: preserving the site functionality.


Exporting content to code with Drupal

There are cases when you want to export some content from a website, in order to import the same content at some later point into a similar website in an automated fashion.


drush grep, search raw content in drupal with regular expressions

I was looking for a way to search raw content (before input filters are applied) in my Drupal blog using regular expressions, à la grep; I googled to see what other people had come up with to solve the same problem and I found an article about Searching the Drupal Database by Regular Expression, which pointed also to the scanner module, however those solutions have both some limitations: ad-hoc Drupal scripting, only MySQL supported, and I didn't want to have a module installed for that anyways; so I tried the Drush way and I found it the most convenient one.
