A-jax of all trades
A whistle-stop tour of the Drupal AJAX API including some of the changes and improvements introduced in Drupal 8. This is a relatively high-level introduction to the topic and is aimed aimed at those developers who have had little or no experience with the API previously.
The Drupal AJAX provides the developer with a number of tools to make your apps more dynamic and responsive without the need to get down and dirty with XHR.
In this session I’ll be covering the the concepts that underpin AJAX in Drupal with examples of how to use the API to snaz up your user experience, including:
AJAX and Form API.
AJAX commands, what are they and how do we use them?
AJAX links and nojs.
New in D8: AJAX modals.
