A couple of weeks ago, Tailwind team has released 1.0.0-beta.1. Tailwind has been growing exponentially, and the step of defining a stable API is an important milestone in the road.
I have created a template for Joomla that implements Tailwind CSS. Now, it is time to publish the second version of the template that empowers this blog: anibalsanchez/XT-Tailwind-for-Joomla v2.0.0
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

At the end of 2018, I promised myself to continue renewing the tools that I used to develop sites and apps. Tailwind CSS is positioned as a new utility-first CSS framework for rapidly building custom user interfaces. In search of new modern techniques for Joomla, Tailwind falls naturally in this category for Joomla.
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.
