Title: Approaches to building a rest API in GO
Authors: Van Eechaute, Anton
Issue Date: 2016
Publisher: Hogeschool West-Vlaanderen
Abstract: APIs are the core of many web applications. You could think of them as a contract provided by one piece of computer software to another. (Beach, 20136) An API could be used by more than one application. You could have an API provide the data for a web application, a mobile application, smart TVs, etc. This reduces code duplication a lot. We don’t have to rewrite the same logic to interact with the data over and over again with each application we add. This saves a lot of time and allows us to focus on the unique problems for every application instead of wasting time on already solved problems. There are different kinds of APIs such as RESTful, SOAP, XML-RPC, JSON-RPC, etc… (Maddox, 20147) In this paper we will develop a RESTful api. REST is the abbreviation of Representational State Transfer. It is not really a protocol, but more a set of design choices. When an API implements a REST architecture it is also called a RESTful API.
