The concept of decoupled Drupal has gone from a cutting-edge technology to a fairly common approach to build digital experiences.

If you are building a digital experience that includes a JS website you will need to have a node.js server for SSR purposes. In this talk we'll learn how to leverage that infrastructure to add a node.js proxy server between Drupal and all of your consumers. Most importantly we'll discuss how we can collaborate on this node.js starter kit that can be used in most of your decoupled projects.

Key topics that we'll cover in the presentation:

  • Performance: how a node.js proxy and caching can improve the performance of your API.

  • Secure: how a node.js proxy can harden the security of your API.

  • Robust: how a fairly simple architecture can make your application more resilient.

  • Flexible: how you can extend your API's features using a node.js proxy.

  • Production-ready: how to manage processes to stay up and running.

To benefit most from this session, you’ll need to have a basic understanding of decoupled Drupal. Ideally, you already have experience deploying a decoupled Drupal project to production.
