I just started learning Node.js to understand the architectural design and working of backend applications. To perform any HTTP request to a web server you need restful API, so I wanted to know how to start learning about this restful API.

As your concern is regarding how to create restful API lets discuss about it:

REST or RESTful stands for REpresentational State Transfer. It is an architectural style as well as an approach for communications purpose that is often used in various web services development

Let me tell you in simple words: It is an application program interface (API) which makes use of the HTTP requests to GET, PUT, POST and DELETE the data over Web Server

To learn how to build RestFul API, follow this way:

  • You should be aware of basic designing principles of Restful API
  • You should be able to work with Express.js
  • Choose any database, Understand how to perform CRUD operations with it, and try to create a simple API with it

You can also make use of this blog to perform it practically: How to Build REST API with Node.js from Scratch | Edureka
