Drupal and Restful


Drupal is great to organize your content and build a website, but sometimes you want more that just a website. Websites are great for people to interact with your content but if you want to send your content to an app or another web site you need something more data centric than html. RSS feeds are a good example. RSS feeds are your content in an XML format. The display is not optimized, but the content is still king. XML works but JSON has become the most popular kid on the block. There are several standards for fetching your content in a machine readable format but RESTFul services are the most popular. You specify in the URL what content you want and it is returned to you. This session will present RESTFul services with Drupal 7 and 8. We will discuss the techniques and some of the gotchas.
