Munich TYPO3 User Group Special: Headless CMS, REST & TYPO3

We are delighted to be able to fulfill a big wish of our user group: an evening that is all about Headless CMS and REST in connection with TYPO3!

Maybe you’ve always wondered what this Headless & REST actually is and where it can be put to good use.

To answer these questions, we were able to win three speakers on these topics:

EXT:headless & PWA (Tomasz Woldański, Macopedia)
The TYPO3 extension headless delivers a JSON content API for the TYPO3 PWA solution. This extension provides the backend part (JSON API) for the TYPO3 PWA solution. The second part is a JavaScript application nuxt-typo3 which consumes JSON API and renders the content using Vue.js and Nuxt.

EXT:nnrestapi (David Bascom, 99°)
Build a REST API for your TYPO3 project. Equipped with everything you need: Routing with annotations. User authentication. File upload and FAL conversion. Testbed and automatic documentation of your API. The backend module comes with a “Kickstarter” to get your RESTful API up and running in minutes.

EXT:interest (Mathias Bolt Lesniak, Pixelant)
This extension provides a REST and CLI API for adding, updating, and deleting records in TYPO3. Tracks relations so records can be inserted in any order. Uses remote ID mapping, so you don’t have to track what UID a record has gotten after import. Data is inserted using backend APIs as if an actual human did it, so you can inspect the record history and undo actions.

These three extensions provide a different approach to getting data into TYPO3 or out of it. A particular focus of the evening is examples of how and where to use REST and headless in practice.

After each talk, there will be time to ask questions and discuss.
Usually, our meetings are held in German, but the evening will be entirely in English this time. So we are happy about all English-speaking guests as well!
