Rest API best practices
Designing and building a REST API takes time, takes effort and most importantly takes the right skill. REST APIs should be easy to understand, well documented and follow standards so that integration is straightforward. This can be acheived only if we follow the best practices when designing a RESTful API. Lets look into the REST API best practices to design and build great APIs which are robust and reliable. APIs are a generic concept that can be explained in many ways for example, - An API is a web service which delivers resources via web technologies such as HTTP. - APIs are interfaces used for system to system communications. - APIs are used for building distributed software systems to enable loose coupling.
