What is and isn’t REST

Things that aren’t magically true just because your API is RESTian:

  1. Writing clients is easy.You don’t even need a client, you can just derive everything from a single endpoint.

  3. Your API will scale properly.
  4. Your API is easy to extendYou won’t get support requests from people who didn’t read the documentation.
