Hello and welcome to my first "technical" article since a very long time. Last one was on a time when Adobe Flash and Facebook Applications were still a thing. (and maybe you’re too young to know what I’m talking about 😀)
I’ve been developing a REST API recently and I knew quite exactly what to do but I still keep on reading articles about API development to see if there’s new techniques that I don’t know about.
A lot of theses articles are really good to start building a REST API, like these ones for example :
But is it enough to code a CRUD - well more a GPPD (GET-POST-PATCH-DELETE) but let’s stick with readable acronyms 😀 - to put your api in production ?
Well no, not really and I found myself implementing a lot of annex features that are however pretty essential.
