The RESTful API components introduced in Drupal 8 allow us to completely decouple Drupal from the front end and use it as purely an API layer. This allows us to use Drupal in many different ways than just a browser focused CMS. This session will be 50% presentation and 50% practical demonstration.

The presentation will touch on the following topics:

  • The what and why of REST?
  • The status of RESTful services in Drupal 8
  • Extending Drupal RESTful services
  • Performance considerations
  • Gotchas

The demonstration will focus on the following:

  • Getting data out of Drupal
  • Getting data into Drupal
