A Proposal for Batched REST
An alternative to both REST & GraphQL, combining the benefits of each, based on https://tools.ietf.org/id/draft-snell-http-batch-00.html.
Batch multiple related requests into one HTTP request, which can be sent once & processed once on the server-side, but otherwise keep all the benefits of REST & HTTP. This is one single raw HTTP request:
POST /batch Host: example.com Content-Type: multipart/batch
