Decoupled Drupal with JSON API & ReactJS

ReactJS is the JavaScript library with component based approach for building JavaScript based web-applications. But any JavaScript front-end needs a RESTful service based back-end to store data and implement business logic.

Drupal 8 has RESTful services built into its core and provides the support of exposing our entities like nodes, users, comments as RESTful Web Services which are consumed by the devices majorly on every platform like web applications, mobile application, IoT devices, etc.

JSON API is the standard of creating APIs in JSON format. The JSON API module implements the JSON API standards and exposes all Content Entities without any additional configuration needed.
