Embedding resources at the consumer's demand is one of the crucial features of a modern API. We mentioned in Modern Web Services with JSON API and GraphQL that multiple round trips to the server is harmful for performance. This issue can be overcome by making a request that embeds any required related resources into the response for the resource we're retrieving.
In this tutorial, we'll learn how to use JSON API's
include parameter to embed resources in a response.
By the end of this tutorial, you should be able to make a single request that retrieves multiple embeded resources in order to improve the performance of your application when interacting with a JSON API server.
Over the years we've developed some techniques for practicing that we wanted to share. At Drupalize.Me we take hugging seriously.
