Extending Islandora

Because Islandora 8 is very tightly integrated with Drupal, many use cases that required custom Islandora modules in previous versions can now be solved with a combination of configuration and modules from the Drupal community. Other use cases may still require custom code, but are not common enough, or complete enough, for that custom code to be a part of the core software.

Both scenarios are covered by the Islandora Cookbook, which contains an annotated list of custom Islandora tools and modules developed by our community, a list of Drupal contributed modules that may be useful in an islandora context, and a set of recipes which each provide a detailed outline for solving a particular use case.

Islandora 8 is also compatible with most Drupal themes.
