REST Easy Part 5: Everybody Get Together

In this week’s REST Easy tutorial, we tackle the process of adding entity references to your API endpoints. Entity references create relationships between two separate data structures in Drupal. Exposing that link within your API is critical to providing a comprehensive content model.

How do you prepare for the inevitable, yet moving target of Drupal 8 when you’re busy with client work? Join Four Kitchens Web Chefs as we take the plunge with a practice group.

Rest Easy Part 3: Now Filter This

In the third installment of REST Easy, our RESTful module tutorial series, we’ll take a look at how to filter your API endpoints for results, a great feature that brings in the power of Entity Field Query for your APIs.

REST Easy Part 2: Sub Property Boogaloo

This week we’ll continue where we left off after doing the ground work of creating a basic endpoint with the RESTful Drupal module. We skipped one crucial part: the body field. This week’s installment will cover our missing field, which requires extra care when used within a RESTful endpoint.

Making reactive Headless Drupal 8 interfaces with Meteor

Meteor is a JavaScript framework that enables developers to quickly create reactive, highly accessible applications. Drupal is a great content management system that makes it really easy to create well-structured content models and interact with data. Why not combine the two and let Drupal provide Meteor with semantic data with Meteor rendering that data in a reactive way?

Nearly Headless Drupal

Drupal is a pretty strong content manager, allowing you to build robust data models, easily enable content revisioning, and build a publishing workflow complex enough for even the strictest of editorial standards. However, the blistering speed of development on Drupal 8 appears glacial when compared with the rate of invention on the frontend of web development.

Introducing Saucier

With the first party API building tools built into Drupal 8 core, there’s been a lot of talk about building semantic APIs in Drupal; when, how, and why you should or should not. However, a commonly overlooked piece of this picture is how to go about actually consuming these APIs. As it turns out, consuming an API, even a well designed one, can present a number of challenges. That’s why we created Saucier, a Node.js framework for creating web pages using Drupal-based content APIs.
