In this video, Nate will dig deeper into the concepts behind REST, and contrast the REST and RPC styles of API design.
- [Instructor] Now that we've defined that a REST API…represents resources and links between resources,…let's dig deeper into this definition by contrasting it…with another style of API design:…RPC or remote procedure call.…In a RESTful API the endpoints are nouns…and represent sources you can act on.…For example, and endpoint that represents all the users…in the system, might be /users.…In contrast, endpoints in an RPC API are verbs…because they represent functions…or methods you can call on the server.…
In a REST API, calling an endpoint acts on a resource…using an HTTP method as the verb.…For example, sending a GET request to /users/123…retrieves the details of the user with that id.…To update the user you might send…a POST request and a request body.…You're still interacting with the same endpoint…because the endpoint represents the resource or the object.…An RPC API uses HTTP methods as well,…but the semantics are a little different.…The HTTP method may of may not correspond…to the verb already in the endpoint name.…
