The pace of innovation in CMS development has been a phenomenon – The API first development is also known as decoupled or headless application development is one of the top trending ones in this list.
API first Drupal as a central data service or decoupled Drupal is the best way to expand your digital capabilities where you have Drupal backend services and APIs ready for multiple applications like website, mobile apps, connected devices, wearables, Internet of Things(IoT), etc. with right user experience. You can say this as the ‘Create Once, Publish Anywhere’ [COPE] method. Another main advantage of decoupled Drupal is, you have complete frontend freedom, where developers can create and deliver cutting-edge user experience using any other JS frameworks/tools.
Decoupled Drupal is appropriate when there is more than one content consumer such as mobile apps, websites, wearable devices, etc., and of course, if front-end teams require full freedom to display the data/contents. The main advantage of decoupled Drupal is
- Speed up the application performance by separating the presentation layer from the client-side.
- Front developers have less dependency with the Drupal developers
- Content can be reuse and consume by different applications such as mobile apps, websites, etc.
