Preparing the talk for Mastermind Podcast, these are my notes about Web Services quick testing 101:
- Step 1: Download and Install Joomla 4 Alpha 7
- Step 2: Notice that there two new plugin groups: api-authentication and webservices
- Step 3: Notice that there two new plugins: API Authentication - Basic Auth and Web Services - Content
- Step 4: J4 A7 has API Authentication based on Http Basic Authentication. So, yes, you have to configure .htpasswd to test the API. Ref: http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/programs/htpasswd.html
- Step 5: Of course, if you are a little bit lazy, you can go straight to plugins/api-authentication/basic/basic.php, and change the authentication or create your own plugin.
- Step 6: Create an article and access the REST API for the Content component. For instance: http://mytest.com/api/index.php/v1/article/1

Tailwind CSS is positioned as a new utility-first CSS framework for rapidly building custom user interfaces.

Beyond the basic definition, we can discover the answer to the question What is Tailwind CSS? In the words of one of its creators, Adam Watham.
In the October edition of the Joomla Magazine, I've started a series of articles about Joomla modernization. The first instance of the series is Talking about a Modern Joomla.
The first article has been aimed to be a conversation starter about the general need for a change of vision, from how the CMS was originally designed and the new requirements of a modern website.
Now, the second article of the series is almost out!
