Drupal allows for a rich data model where entity reference fields can be used to relate any number of different items together in different ways. The data models that you can build with Drupal are often prolific in relationships, which means we need a way to handle these in our API. While Drupal treats a field with a string, and a field with an entity reference the same, JSON API distinguishes between attributes and relationships.
In this tutorial we'll:
- Look at how JSON API represents relationships between two or more resources
- How to distinguish between an attribute and a relationship in a response object
- Learn about what information is available for each relationship and how we can use it
By the end of this tutorial you should have a better understanding of how the JSON API specification represents relationships modeled using Drupal entity reference fields.
Over the years we've developed some techniques for practicing that we wanted to share. At Drupalize.Me we take hugging seriously. In this tutorial we'll look at the art, and science, of giving a good hug. The Merriam Webster dictionary defines the word hug as; squeeze (someone) tightly in one's arms, typically to express affection.
Did you know there are all kinds of different hugs that you can give? In this tutorial we'll look at:
- Defining what a hug is
- Some of the many types of hugs in the world today
- Precautions you may want to familiarize yourself with before hugging
- And the importance of proper technique
Lets go ahead and get started shall we?
