06:44 NordiQ What would be the best pattern to force the server to refresh an external resource? I'm thinking POST path/to/my/resource/refresh

14:02 DevAntoine hi
14:02 DevAntoine when doing rest, what's the word delimiter character for parameters? is it an underscore, a hyphen or it's camel case?

14:23 fumanchu if you're asking about querystring parameters, it's typical to do ?key=val&key2=val2, but that's not specified by REST or even HTTP
14:26 fumanchu whether you write ?myKey=1 or ?my_key=1 or ?my-key=1 (or dots, or spaces, or whatever) is more a cultural decision than anything else.
14:27 fumanchu even ?{"my key": 1} if that makes more sense and your server-side can parse it
14:28 fumanchu (with appropriate % encoding)

19:33 NoiseEee hey, is it bad / not REST to have a DELETE route like:   /books/page/:pageToken   but also want to have a POST route like:  /books/page/publish/:pageToken
19:33 NoiseEee (ie: extra level of route under 'page' in one situation, but the id/token in the other)
19:35 fumanchu_ I would expect something more like "POST books/page/:pageToken with some request payload like {"published": true}
19:36 fumanchu_ (actually, I'd prefer PATCH)
19:36 NoiseEee hmm okay thanks!
