This is a follow up to my early blog post about enabling RESTful web services in Drupal 8. Jesus Olivas, one of the creators of Drupal Console, brought up that you can actually manage your RESTful endpoint plugin configurations direct from the command line!
Drupal 8 ships with the RESTful Web Services module which allows you to expose various API endpoints for interacting with your Drupal site. While the community is making a push for the JSON API module, I have found the core' RESTful module to be pretty useful when I have custom endpoints or need to implement Remote Procedure Calls (RPC) endpoints. However, using the module and enabling endpoints is a bit rough. So, let's cover that! Also note, this blog covers the content from the introduction of the Web Services chapter from the Drupal 8 Development Cookbook.
