Designing Hypermedia APIs By Alison Whatmoore

At first, the web was used to exchange information stored in static documents; soon, a common interface for generating pages was created. In order to support this massive scale, certain design... More > decisions were made to make it all work. Roy Fielding analyzed these design decisions and synthesized them into “a framework for understanding software architecture through architectural styles, including a consistent set of terminology for describing software architecture.” Alongside his framework, he also provided a description of “REST, a novel architectural style for distributed hypermedia systems.” This better understanding of aspects of Internet architecture has informed our design decisions since that time. HTTP 1.1, for example, introduced some changes to bring HTTP more in line with RESTful design principles.< Less

The project focuses on two negative effects that hypermedia has on its users: information overload within and among a proliferating, bewildering array of choices of information links, paths, and levels; and atrophy of the user's associative memory function with a potential loss of critical and creative thinking skills through over-reliance on system-supplied links.< Less

Undisturbed REST is a book that covers one of the hardest challenges of all, designing an API that is both long-lived, that meets business objectives, and that your users will love. Taking you... More > through the full API lifecycle, it starts off by having an understanding of what it is you are building, and why. The book then transitions into modern design techniques for APIs, letting you take advantage of the latest technology to quickly build out and prototype your API before writing any code! Afterwards, Michael jumps into the best practices for handling authentication, designing your resources and methods, and handling responses including today’s leading error and hypermedia specs. Finally, Undisturbed REST wraps up by hitting two vital components of an APIs success, management, and documentation. Ensuring that your API is as easy to understand and integrate as possible.

Believe it or not, building an API is the easy part. What is far more challenging is to put together a design that will stand the test of time, while also meeting your developers' needs. After all,... More > no matter how well written your code may be, without a strong foundation, you will find your API quickly failing. Undisturbed REST works to tackle this issue through the use of modern design techniques and technology, showing how to carefully design your API with your users and longevity in-mind, taking advantage of a design-first approach- while incorporating best practices and hard lessons learned. After reading Undisturbed REST, you'll have a strong understanding of APIs, best practices, and available tooling for designing, prototyping, sharing, documenting, and generating tooling (such as SDKs) around your API. More importantly, you'll be equipped to design and build an API not just for today, but one that can stand the test of time and lead your application into tomorrow.< Less

While the highlights of this work are presented in “Group Cognition,” a number of writings that did not make it into that volume fill in important aspects of my explorations of personalizable software. The present volume has been assembled to make those essays available in an organized way. This book is structured in four sections, corresponding roughly to phases in the development of my research on personalizable software: •Section I. Structured Hypermedia •Section II.
