Feature states, diffs, and reverting

The main Features administration page at Administration > Configuration > Development > Synchronize > Features > Configure bundles (admin/config/development/configuration/features) provides information on the status and state of available features and their configuration items.

Feature statuses

Possible statuses for a feature are:

Installing and using features modules

Features modules are regular Drupal modules that contain packaged configuration for installation on multiple sites. Features modules are installed and enabled just like any other module.

If you're coming from a previous version of Drupal and Features.... Contrary to previous versions, in Drupal 8 you don't need the Features module installed in order to use feature modules. There is no specialized admin page for enabling features.


Features is guided by the following principles:

Installing Deploy


Drupal modules

PHP libraries

Install with composer, run composer require relaxedws/replicator in your Drupal docroot, or use Composer Manager.

Deploy for Drupal 8

For Drupal 8 Deploy has been rewritten from the ground up.

Deploy is now very much a UI module. It uses RELAXed Web Services on both the source and target sites to replicate content with the same API as CouchDB. This means that Deploy also works for replicating content from Drupal to a CouchDB database.

Create a custom field widget

The field widget let you specify how the field is shown and behaves on an entity form.
