I’ve talked and written a lot about the importance of good API design. Now, in my latest guest post for Stoplight, I have explored how to design APIs following the CRUD paradigm - created, read, update, delete. While this approach is not necessarily the right one for every API, it works for a lot of them, and those APIs can benefit from consistency throughout the API ecosystem by following best practices. Go ahead and find “CRUD API Design Recommendations From the Field” on the Stoplight blog , where I’m explaining the implementation of recommended URL structures and choosing the correct HTTP verbs.
