    Since there are so many options and since this is arguably the most

    important configuration for our end point,

    we're going to dedicate this entire lesson

    At their route, each resource maps roughly

Enabling Resources


The services module exposes most of Drupal core's data as resources and provides CRUD operations and additional actions for each. In this lesson Joe will look at the available resources, talk about the various CRUD operations and actions and then enable the node resource and demonstrate retrieving node data as JSON from the services endpoint.
