Making Drupal the Best REST server for Single-Page Apps
Click here to watch Making Drupal the Best REST server for Single-Page Apps.
With Drupal 8, we're not just an HMTL CMS anymore. We're a fully capable REST server that can organize and deliver data for applications of all kinds. We already seeing a huge push toward "single-page apps" that communicate with the server entirely by JSON over HTTP and Web Sockets. This push has driven some formerly enthusiastic Drupal users and contributors away from Drupal and toward solutions like Node.js and Python's WSGI frameworks.
My goal is to ensure the Drupal remains a valuable tool for Web Application Developers in a world where page reloads aren't tolerated.
