O API — an alternative to REST APIs
David Gilbertson

If you want to make Web APIs easier and standardize them you should have a look at OData (http://www.odata.org/) that is widely used by Microsoft, SAP and some others or GraphQL (http://graphql.org/) that in my opinion has the biggest chance to replace traditional REST APIs.

Both define metadata which allows programs and other tools to inspect the API and build generic apps and a great tool box for it.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
