Implementing Third-Party API's in a Drupal module — Video Available
Many services provide an API for accessing and manipulating their data and objects. Sometimes a PHP library is available to utilize that API and others are RESTful endpoints. A Drupal module can make it easier to use the library or endpoint by providing UI for configuration, storing and/or updating data and syncing Drupal objects.
In this session we will be reviewing the implementation of third-party API's in Drupal modules such as Salesforce and Mailchimp, as well as another API that is REST-like. We will discuss:
- Mapping API objects to Drupal Entities
- Configuration administration
- Challenges when dealing with API's
- Testing with third-party API's
