Drupal Watchdog: RESTful Web Services Module Basics

Posted on Thursday, April 16th, 2015 by drupalroot

 String Telephone Drupal 7 does not have built-in support for representational state transfer (REST) functionality. However, the RESTful Web Services module is arguably the most efficient way to provide resource representations for all the entity types, by leveraging Drupal's powerful Entity API. Unmodified, the module makes it possible to output the instances of the core entity types – node, file, and user – in JSON or XML format. Further entity type resources and formats are possible utilizing hooks in added code.

KnackForge: Drupal 7 - Hooking Ajax events and views refresh

Posted on Thursday, April 16th, 2015 by drupalroot
Drupal has a solid Ajax interface, we can hook into the Ajax events at various places. I will explain some 5 important methods,
1) beforeSerialize - called before data is packed and runs before the beforeSend & beforeSubmit
2) beforeSubmit - called before the ajax request
3) beforeSend - called just before the ajax request
4) success - called after ajax event returns data
5) complete - called after the request ends
Lets say you want to capture some ajax event (in built or made by other module) to do some event like Views refresh. We can use a very simple logic to do that.
