  • ctools and entity are mostly in core in D8.
  • messaging and notifications - D8 alternative available, Courier in beta for D8
  • imce_filefield - support for file fields might now be built into IMCE itself? Definitely working in Backdrop already! (If it was working in Backdrop at some point, it isn't anymore!)
  • metatag - Backdrop alternative available, Base Meta Tags, full release
  • radix_layouts - a number of Radix/Bootstrap layouts are now included in Backdrop core as of v1.4.
  • spamspan - Invisimail is a probable Backdrop alternative.
  • views_bulk_operations - Some, but not all, user and content bulk operations seem to be in core in both Backdrop and D8. The D8 contrib module says it fills in missing functionality.
  • webform - There's some preliminary code out there, but it looks like no one has really shown up to claim responsibility for the project. See this issue for more.
  • wysiwyg_mediaembed - possible Backdrop alternatives include YouTube Field, Video Filter and Video Embed Field
