Drupal 8 Module of the Week: Services
Each day more Drupal 7 modules are being migrated over to Drupal 8. Citiface developers are contantly watching some of the most prominent, useful modules that have been migrated. This week: Services.
What does the Services module do?
Services module provides a standard way for Drupal site builders and engineers to enable and build an API, which allows external clients to communicate with Drupal. Based on Drupal.org data, Services is in use on more than 37,000 sites.
Services is an important module for developers because it provides a standard way to build APIs. This consistent implementation, in turn, allows them to collaborate faster and more easily across projects, and build more extensible APIs. It is also a key component for building today’s web-services-based digital businesses with Drupal; helping it power native mobile applications, sites built with front end frameworks like Angular.js, and more.
