Frequently asked questions

What is REST API?

A Representational State Transfer (REST) API, commonly referred to as RESTful API or simply REST API, is an architectural style for designing networked applications. It is based on principles that emphasize a stateless client-server communication model, uniform resource identifiers (URIs) for resource identification, and standard HTTP methods (GET, POST, PUT, DELETE) for performing operations on resources.

Here are key components and characteristics of a REST API:


In a REST API, resources represent entities or objects that the client interacts with. Resources are typically identified by URIs, and each resource may have one or more representations (e.g., JSON, XML) that clients can retrieve or manipulate.

HTTP Methods

REST APIs use standard HTTP methods to perform operations on resources. These methods include:

  • GET: Retrieve a representation of a resource.
  • POST: Create a new resource.
  • PUT: Update an existing resource or create a new one if it doesn’t exist.
  • DELETE: Remove a resource.
  • PATCH: Partially update a resource.
  • OPTIONS: Retrieve information about the communication options available for a resource.
Stateless Communication

RESTful interactions are stateless, meaning each request from the client to the server contains all necessary information to fulfill the request. The server does not store any client state between requests, which simplifies scalability and reliability.

Uniform Interface

REST APIs use a uniform interface between clients and servers, promoting simplicity and decoupling between components. This includes using standard HTTP methods, resource identifiers (URIs), and representations (e.g., JSON, XML).


Resources are represented in a format such as JSON or XML, which clients can parse and interpret. Clients and servers can negotiate the representation format using content negotiation mechanisms provided by HTTP.


REST APIs are stateless, meaning each request from a client to the server must contain all the information necessary to understand and fulfill the request. The server does not store any client state between requests, which improves scalability and reliability.

REST APIs are widely used for building web services and web applications due to their simplicity, scalability, and compatibility with existing web standards. They enable interoperability between different systems and platforms, making it easier to integrate and communicate between disparate software components.

Is there a non-technical answer for "what is REST API?

Think of a REST API as a way for different software systems to talk to each other over the internet, similar to how people communicate using phones.

Here’s a simpler breakdown:

  1. Resources: Imagine resources as things you want to interact with, like a book in a library or a song in a music app. Each of these things has a unique address, like the book’s location on a shelf or the song’s link in an app.
  2. Actions: Just like you can do different things with a book (borrow, return, search for), with a REST API, you can do different actions with resources. These actions are like buttons you press on your phone, such as “get information,” “add something new,” “change something,” or “delete.”
  3. Communication: When you press these buttons (or send requests), the REST API sends back the information or performs the action you asked for. This communication happens using a common language called HTTP, which is like the language your browser uses to talk to websites.
  4. No Memory: Unlike talking to a person who remembers your previous conversation, a REST API doesn’t remember anything about you from one interaction to the next. Each time you make a request, you have to include everything the API needs to know, like a clean slate.
  5. Agreement: Both the software sending requests and the software receiving them need to agree on how they’ll communicate. This agreement includes things like which actions they’ll use, how they’ll format the information they send back and forth, and where they’ll find the resources.

In essence, a REST API is like a helpful assistant that lets different software systems exchange information and perform actions over the internet, following a set of agreed-upon rules.
