Getting Started with Services 4.x - Drupal 8 Documentation or Examples?

Feel free to yell at me if I've missed something obvious, but I can't seem to find any documentation or examples at all for the 8.x-4.0-beta version of the Services module.

I've created a API module with 7.x-3.x branch of Services, and it worked out great, Tin Can Learning Record Store.

I create my own custom endpoint and resources programmatically, handled GET,PUT, POST, DELETE, and CORS requests.

Services REST server: Best practices for DRY when implementing custom endpoint for a custom model

I've implemented Services just a few times now from out of the box Drupal function to custom endpoints, and the current one is my most ambitious (and most meticulous) effort. I want to build it in the way that makes the most sense, and I feel informed enough now to have a decent discussion about best practices.

For a REST server hosted by the Services module, the request flow looks like this, right?

Drupal services as backend for mobile application

I am developing ionic mobile application and i am using drupal as my backend for authentication & content creation.

I was going to call the service register then login APIs after successful facebook login then i realized i need to double check if the same user register before

How can I pass an argument containing periods using Services?

Is there a way to have arguments passed in the path that contain periods? I have product ids that contain periods, and I'd like something like /info/ In my callback, I'm just returning the argument, and printing a log with Watchdog. Just passing product works as expected, but isn't returning anything and watchdog isn't logging anything.

Integration of Drupal with c/c++ computational server


I need to:

1) use drupal-powered web interface to collect user input (parameters);
2) invoke the computational modules/softwares written in c/c++ on a computational server with the parameters collected from the drupal site.
3) return the computational results to the drupal site.

I have been searching on the drupal sites, and I am wondering if Services module fit into my needs. If it is, can anybody give me some hints on how to achieve my goals?

Suggestions are very much appreciated.

Why is a date field posted in one format and returned in a different?

I started working on a C++/Qt library for accessing a Drupal site via Services and a REST server (I'm more into C++ than PHP and Drupal module hacking), when I ran into the following problem: When I retrieve a node via node.retreive request, modify some fields of the returned JSON object and repost the changes via node.update request, Date field content will be killed.

Cannot post node as authenticated user from phonegap

Hi all,

I have spent hours trying to figure this out as well as finding relevant code examples, I'm stuck...

I'm building a basic phonegap app that should allow to post a node as authenticated user. I can successfully login, but I cannot further post as this authenticated user thru X-CSRF-Token: I always get 403 - "Access denied for user 001" ...

I summed up the steps I follow in the dummy loginAndPost() function below.


function loginAndPost() {

// Set some vars

var username = "001";
var password = "001";
var server_uri = "http://my-drupal-website";

'Building' and 'room' are both content types, and '4' and '5', the node-ids.

Using the Services module, I can create the following calls:

And with the Services Views module, I can customise the path a little more:
