Examples of RESTful API calls for E-commerce platforms

These examples are type 3 RESTful API requests and responses. The JSON-HAL specification is used to implement HATEOAS.

Some of the examples are based on my work as architect of the RESTful API at http://www.hautelook.com. All proprietary information has been removed.

Please note: THIS ARTICLE IS NOT WRITTEN BY THE GITHUB TEAM or in any way associated with them. It's simply hosted as a Gist because the markdown formatting is excellent and far clearer than anything I could manage on my personal Tumblr at peternixey.com.

Why autostarting default config packages are a bad thing
View autostart.md

For a moment, I'm going to throw away my automation and configuration management hat. I'll let you know when I put it back on. Also, let's ignore that we're talking about Riak specifically for a moment. Also also, let's ignore any (for a brief moment) the proper role of a package manager.

What's your target market?

If you're writing server software, you have two target markets. The system administrator/operations team and the developer.

Why do you want autostart?

The main reason you want autostart is to get people up and running quickly. To do this, you need to ship safe and sane defaults. This means something like a default configuration that listens only on localhost.

Continuous CoffeeScript testing with Guard and Jasmine

This Gist shows how to set up a Rails project to practice BDD with CoffeeScript, Guard and Jasmine. You can see this setup in action on Vimeo

  • Install Gems with Bundler with bundle install
  • Define your guards with mate Guardfile
  • Initialize Jasmine with bundle exec jasmine init
  • Configure Jasmine with mate spec/support/yasmine.ym
  • Start Guard with bundle exec guard
