Google Protobuf 2.5.0 - Mac OS X and iOS Support

The libraries built by this script are universal and support all iOS device architectures including the simluator.

  • Only use a URL to reference a resource. A resource should never be referenced by some other bit of JSON by a simple identifier (id, oid, etc.)
  • Use HAL to express relationships between resources. (
  • If a resource appears in the _embedded section of a resource must also appear in the _links section of the resource.
  • Items that appear in the _links section of a resource may also appear in the _embedded section of the resource.
  • Use curies to simplifiy link relationship naming in resources.
  • Use URI Templates to express optional parameters (generally query string parameters) for a resource.
  • Define and publish a URI Template parameter table so clients know what the possible "fill-in-the-blank" fields are for URI templates.
