If you start now a Drupal project. Which way should you go for image files. Is it safe to use the module Media now. Can you upgrade to Drupal 8.3 with parts of Media in core?


I would go with Media suite simply because I believe files should be treated like full entities as nodes are. It grants you more options and flexibility in media management and reuse instead of the standard upload field.

  • Thank you for the answer. The new media management is great. But I'm more concerned about the upgrade path?

  • That isn't something anyone here can answer, only the Media maintainers can answer that.

  • The media maintainers definitely plan to support an upgrade path, so far its (almost?) only API changes and doesn' affect the data.
