  • In a previous installment of Experience Express, we explored how effective core REST out of the box can be for the purposes of consuming content retrieved from Drupal and manipulating said data as well. Furthermore, with the help of Views, any content listing can be easily converted into an API resource.

  • As we saw in a previous installment of Experience Express, because Drupal has a HAL-compliant REST API available out of the box with minimal configuration, you can easily provision an API that can immediately be employed to consume content entities and manipulate them from other applications. Now that we have successfully exposed content entities as REST resources, used Entity Access to govern per...

  • Perhaps the most critical piece of any decoupled CMS architecture is the API layer which exposes data in the back end for consumption by other applications. In Drupal's case, the REST module (also known as the RESTful Web Services module) in Drupal 8 core fulfills this responsibility. The REST module contains important logic that drives the availability of data through formatted responses. Neverth...

  • Easy-to-guess passwords are all too often the means by which intruders gain unauthorised access. It's useful to be able to audit the passwords in use on your site - especially for user accounts with administrative privileges.
