I was doing some research recently on best practices for creating APIs and have collected some excellent link on the subject. Here’s a quick honeypot to share some great API resources:
- Principles of good RESTful API Design: http://codeplanet.io/principles-good-restful-api-design/
- Thoughts on RESTful API design: https://restful-api-design.readthedocs.org/en/latest/
- Best Practices for Designing a Pragmatic RESTul API : http://www.vinaysahni.com/best-practices-for-a-pragmatic-restful-api
- How to design a good API and why it matters: http://lcsd05.cs.tamu.edu/slides/keynote.pdf
Do you have any you’d like me to add to the list? Just drop me a comment!
Enjoy the distraction!
