    Like most modules in Drupal,
  • 0:09
    the Services module comes with the whole suite of different hooks we
  • 0:12
    can implement in order to alter the way that it works.
  • 0:17
    In this lesson, I would like to take a look at how we can alter
  • 0:20
    the responses that we're getting from the Services module.
  • 0:23
    Thus far, when we've requested a node,
  • 0:26
    we've gotten the complete node object as JSON data.
  • 0:29
    But that might not always be the best fit for the application
  • 0:32
    that we're building.

Altering the Response Object


Services implements resources for all of core's basic data types but sometimes the information returned in the response is either to much or to little and we want to make changes to the response data. In this lesson Joe will look at how we can write a simple custom module that implments basic hooks provided by the services module to allow us to alter the response returned by a request to the node resource.
