17:07 darkangel Any opinions on this? http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1426845/incrementing-resource-counter-in-a-restful-way-put-vs-post
17:10 asdf` the accepted answer is a pretty nice way of solving that
17:11 asdf` PATCH would be fun, but it's not fairly common (and eg. json-patch has no "increment a counter" operation), and without an 'atomic increment' operation you now need some transaction scheme, this gets pretty hairy
17:13 darkangel asdf`: ^ It creates a bunch of mostly pointless resources, especially when all they are is an integer ... I'm not too worried about atomicity, that will be handled by the DB server ... for PATCH we'd have to create a custom media type like he did.
17:13 asdf` yep, if that's not too painful using the technologies you use, i think i'd do that
17:14 darkangel asdf`: I'll discuss it with my co-worker, thanks. :)
18:04 saml GET /profiles/1  increments counter/
18:05 saml GET ain't idempotent then
18:06 saml or counter does not have to be part of representation
