Scott discusses how to create a REST API. He begins with a model of the data. Then, he makes the routes to create, read, update, and delete (CRUD) the data. Once these resources are in place, the API can be created.
- What we're going to do is we're going to create an API…to consume some data about lions.…Internet cats.…First we should determine what the actual…resource looks like.…And we can model this in JSON.…When I say resource, I mean what does…the actual lion look like?…'Cause we're going to be making this thing…that consumes lions.…What does a lion object look like?…So we need to model that first.…I'm just going to show you what that looks like in JSON.…This is what our data's going to look like.…This is going to be an object that has a name property,…an ID property, a pride property,…where the lion pride belongs to,…and then a gender property.…
