This week: SEO Checklist // Drupal 8 has more and more features available practically every day. Alongside module migrations and new projects, the Drupal community’s latest major release also offers new ways of solving common problems. Some functionality has moved to Drupal core and new modules have taken up the torch along the way. In this series, the Acquia Developer Center is profiling useful solutions--modules, themes, distros, and more--available for Drupal 8.

Late in 2015, just before the release of Drupal 8, a company called OSTraining approached Acquia for help in funding a Kickstarter project.

Among the most crucial steps in architecting decoupled Drupal-backed applications is to bridge the gap between Drupal and the designated front end so that the latter can receive and manipulate data on the Drupal data repository via API calls. For some frameworks, this can be a rather tedious exercise in navigating the server-side APIs and crafting the correct requests on the client side. Luckily, with JSON API now proposed as a core experimental module for Drupal 8, the tightrope walk between Drupal and Ember is about to become more of a cinch.

Drupal gets better when companies, organizations, and individuals build or fix something they need and then share it with the rest of us. Our community becomes better, stronger, and smarter when others take it upon themselves to make a positive difference contributing their knowledge, time, and energy to Drupal. Acquia is proud to play a part, alongside thousands of others, in some of the stories making tomorrow’s Drupal better than today’s. One of them is Nida Ismail Shah’s.

With Acquia Lightning, site-builders or developers can build an authoring experience from the ground up in only a few hours.

Think of Acquia Lightning as “Drupal Core with afterburners.”

Development tasks that used to take days or weeks are condensed to a matter of minutes.

If you, or a colleague, is wondering about why "community" is an important part of the Drupal experience, this course could be a good way to introduce the topic.

When we last checked in with Rod Martin, in a previous post, he was touring the Drupal 8 interface. In this course, Building a Basic Site Using Drupal 8, he shifts into tutorial mode, deliberately moving step by step through the creation of a fictional Drupal 8 site, Drupalville, which he describes as a site about “all things Drupal.”

In my previous blog post in this Waterwheel series, I detailed the basics of Waterwheel.js: how to set it up in server-side or client-side JavaScript, and how resource discovery can bring Drupal-backed applications and traditional Drupal implementations closer together in unprecedented ways. In this post, I explore how to manipulate content with Waterwheel.js.

For developers of Drupal-backed JavaScript applications, simply having an HTTP client which can make requests against Drupal 8’s core REST API is often not enough. JavaScript developers are sometimes stymied by nuances unique to Drupal which leak out when consuming Drupal’s REST API, such as Drupal-specific paths for resources and confusing data structures in responses. Waterwheel.js alleviates these barriers to JavaScript developers by providing an additional API atop Drupal REST which allows you to retrieve and manipulate content entities in Drupal 8 without needing to deeply understand Drupal’s internals.
