Block E - Slot 14
Over the last few months I decided to start building some of the decoupled blocks that I've been hearing about at Drupal events. After getting the Drupal version working I wondered about how I would put the same block into a Backdrop site. So I changed the module to be a Backdrop module instead of a Drupal module.
After that project I had a Backdrop site that had information I wanted to share inside a Drupal site. I reversed the process, making a decoupled Backdrop block first and then changing the module to be a Drupal module.
We can talk about how I did this with jsonapi, and the Headless module in Backdrop and why.
I'm interested in why; what value do headless blocks offer that can't be done by the likes of feeds and views?
