I am looking for suggestions on Best Practices for D8 and files / media entities. I originally added this as a answer but kiamlaluno evidently felt that it should be a new question in itself so here goes.
I trying to figure out the best way to handle files and media entities. With the increase of development in the file entity module if appears that things are once again getting way over complicated since files can now be a full blown entity. In my opinion this is going to put a lot of people off as to which way is the most practical way to go.
What I would love to see is a tutorial or a write up on best practices of when to use the file field versus the media field and the pros and cons of each. Drupal 8 by default gives us a Article content type which is a file entity. So should we use this for images or delete it and use media fields.
Does anyone know of a recent tutorial or discussion for review?
