    I found the book an excellent read as a start and noticed that some additional practices for production env. on the following would be great to have.

    #. How do you create a “secured” stateless REST APIs using expressJS
    While session management in Chapter 7 is a great read for web applications in general,we do see the need that same data services is required by mobile applications along with web applications.

    Looking forward.

    Thanks in advance,



    Hi Chris,

    Check out Restify for a API-specific HTTP service module.

    People use REST and RESTful in varying degrees of ‘RESTness’, I am not quite sure which degree you are coming from. Read this interesting article, “Your API is not RESTful“, to get the context.

    Implementing a truly and wholly RESTful API in any platform is going to be a substantial effort. However, resourceful routing (Chapter 3, page 73) is very REST-like. You can secure it by the use of session or API token, depending on the nature of your client.

    All the best!
