The RESTful CookBook

Joshua Thijssen and others

REST is hot! And REST is finally rediscovered by API programmers all over the world. But REST isn't always as easy as it seems on first look. Dealing with HATEOAS, Code on demand and uniform interfaces can be really tricky and many people will fall back to not-so-restfull approaches when things starting to become more difficulty. But it doesn't need to be. Once you get to know REST, you will like it.

The RESTful cookbook website is inspired by the puppetcookbook from Dean Wilson, who created cookbook recipes on how to deal with some of the issues people are facing over and over again when using the Puppet Configuration management tool. This site however, is about dealing with issues and questions people are facing over and over again when trying to create RESTfull APIs.
