And, Drupal’s API-first focus means connecting content to other sites and applications, making content more powerful. Security Drupal’s community provide countless eyes and ears to help keep Drupal sites secure.
The Content API module is a drop-in solution that publishes Drupal content as web APIs. The module includes a full featured administration interface for choosing which content types and fields to publish. Built on top of the Services module, the module provides all that is needed to publish web APIs without having to do any programming, even as …
In this video you’ll learn how to use api.drupal.org the canonical source for information about Drupal’s hooks, APIs, and code documentation in order to find out information about implementing a particular hook, making use of a particular function or library of functions, and even gaining a better understanding of some of the big picture concepts behind Drupal…
One Drupal 8.6 improvement is the move of the API-first code to the individual modules, instead of the REST module providing it on their behalf. This might not seem like a significant change, but it is.
Drupal core is modular, defining a system of hooks and callbacks, which are accessed internally via an API. This design allows third-party contributed modules and themes to extend or override Drupal’s default behaviors without changing Drupal core’s code.

Are there any good write-ups on creating RESTful APIs with Drupal? I see the services API, which I guess is how it’s done. What I’m looking for, I suppose is a comparison of drupal vs. other framew
I cannot compare with other frameworks, but Service 3.x (that’s version 3 of the Services module) provides a resource driven model for service with a REST backend (and an XML-RPC one). According to its documentation, you can create a new resource type quite easily (if you are familiar with Drupal) using a simple API as it takes care of JSON[P]/XML parsing and serialization. Updated, prompted by David Eads‘ answer:
I wouldn’t start with Drupal and Services 3.x if the only end need is to build a RESTful service. They are not generic solution to build a data backend with a RESTful API. They should be used when what is needed is a CMS powered website exposing (parts of) its data through a RESTful API.Best answer · 7Drupal Services 3.0 makes creating REST services much easier than it was with the previous versions (2.x). Also Services 3.0 works with Drupal 6 and Drupal 7.3I haven’t worked with Drupal 7 for such purposes, but over the summer I was tasked with building a RESTful service in Drupal 6. Drupal 6 is fairly ill-suited to developing web services: the data model is built around content nodes, and the theming system is built around returning rendered HTML, so you wind up fighting with the framework a fair amount. The Services module is decent, but ultimately, we went with Django Piston . Developing the service in Piston took far less time and was reliable and performant.2If you are looking for a good framework to built a RESTful architecture, I would greatly suggest: 1. Recess Framework
Well, recess is great, you direct routes to functions through URL and redirect control to other functions. It has a simple ORM that allows you to do great things in little time. 2. Fat-Free Framework
I’ve not used F3 but i know its simple, well-documented, allows routing for restful architecture and has its ORM2
