At the Foundation, our goal is to shine a light on what works in preK-12 education. On edutopia.org the Edutopia team recently developed a decoupled solution that combines Node.js/react with jsonapi and the Drupal CMS. Along the way we found impediments to progress, roads that needed paving, but we also learned a few tricks that may help others along this new path. Eric will share a case study with insights from work on Edutopia: data migrations; mapping and resolving routes from old content to new; faking jsonapi versioning; enabling previews using jsonapi to access the Drupal CMS from javascript; improving performance with redux state management; creating the perception of speed; and handling of files and responsive imagery outside of jsonapi.
