The json:api specification provides a powerful format to express complex data structures and relationships between records in a predictable manner. However, consuming json:api can be daunting: its data structure is deep, navigating related records can be expensive, and manipulating data on the server requires building verbose request bodies.

What if you could treat your json:api as any old data store? With jsonmonger, you can! Forget building requests, parsing responses, and writing lengthy lookups into deeply-nested object properties. jsonmonger exposes an abstraction layer between your JavaScript application and a json:api-compliant server, allowing you to truly decouple from your back-end and get full control over your application’s data models. We’ll learn how jsonmonger makes it a breeze to consume Decoupled Drupal (with JSON API module) from your JavaScript application.

Are you interested in a tool that solves decoupled problems before they start? Buckle up and get ready to simplify JSON API interactions with jsonmonger!
