As a fragment developer I can create a fragment using a layout (of columns) and other fragments




      Currently developers can develop fragments using HTML, CSS and Js. This gives them full flexibility to use these web technologies to their full extend. However, the resulting fragment is quite fixed and can only be adapted as explicitly allowed by the page author. While this is desired in many cases, in some others it is better to provide much more flexibility to the page author. This can be achieved by supporting the creation of fragments starting with a layout of columns and placing existing fragments (with their configuration) inside the columns.

      This feature is related to LPS-101255 which allows page authors to save as fragments sections created with Section Builder (that is, with a layout of columns which is filled with fragments). In that case the "format" in which the fragment is hidden, while in this story it is necessary to have a well defined format for a web developer to define the fragment.

      Technical Note

      One possible way to achieve this is to create a new JSON file (i.e. fragment-body.json) which will replicate the column configuration and the fragments inside it:

        columns: [{
          fragments: [{
             key: "heading",
             configuration: {}
            key: "paragraph",
            configuration: {}
          fragments: [{
            key: "image",
           configuration: {}
            key: "button", 
            configuration: {}
