21:26 sulaiman Hello. What's your favourite stack to build a RESTful API with?
21:28 sfisque the one that integrates with the customer's fabric the best
21:32 sulaiman sfisque, I want to create a sample api to use with a sample iOS app. Can you suggest a framework? I can learn anything new. What would you use for a personal project?
21:35 sfisque for simple, i'd probably say (and it makes me cringe to say it)  spring-boot.  it's fairly painless to bootstrap a simple rest endpoint using it.  that being said, i'd basically tell you that you will get better mileage using your favorite web service provider (nginx, apache, tomcat, jboss, glassfish, etc.) and use whatever standard framework is provided for that service provider
21:37 fumanchu_ I'm biased (because I'm still officially the lead dev) but: CherryPy
21:38 fumanchu_ doesn't get much simpler than: http://cherrypy.readthedocs.org/en/latest/
21:39 sfisque unless he's not using python, but you get the idea.  it really doesnt matter, as long as you build maintainable code that leverage a system that integrates with your customer's fabric, it's pretty much open field
21:39 sulaiman I will check CherryPy out, I have previously invested some time learning laravel, so my initial choice is to us lumen (micro version of laravel).
21:41 sulaiman Is the flickr and the moviedatabase api a good example of a restapi that I could try to mimick?
21:42 sulaiman what are some interesting rest apis that I could try to learn good design from?
21:45 sfisque i would say your best "model" for rest is a wiki.  it pretty much embodies most of the "mutable" endpoint model.
21:48 sfisque a wiki minus the UX that is
