In order to allow React to retrieve data from Drupal we need to configure Drupal to serve that data via a web services API. There are numerous ways that you can do this but for now we'll use the JSON API module.

In this tutorial, we'll:

  • Install and configure the JSON API module
  • Confirm that it's working
  • Make some sample requests using a tool like Postman

By the end of this tutorial you should know how to enable and start using the JSON API Drupal module.
