Things to remember when you change the domain name of your Drupal website

As you may have noticed, my domain name is now abh.ai. I've been wanting to change my domain name for some time now, for many reasons. People are often surprised that .xyz is a legitimate domain name despite abc.xyz. Plus, If it weren't for my friends, this change would never have happened. They, very astutely, pointed out that it sounds like the domain name of a porn site.

Headless (decoupled) Drupal using Drupal 8 and angular 6

Headless Drupal or decoupled drupal is when you use Drupal only as a storage for content and a frontend that gets the data from the drupal backend via an API. The front end is usually a JavaScript framework like Angular or Vue. In this example, we use Angular 6 as a front end and we open up my website www.abhaisasidharan.xyz available as JSON objects via an API. This enabled me to create an Angular Single Page Application which pulls content from abhaisasidharan.xyz.
