@sallamar Thanks for clarifying. Still w/ my APIs I try to fulfill the constraint where it makes sense, which is not always.

via Echofon in reply to sallamar

Happy to learn that “my” bug got fixed: code.google.com/p/chromium/iss… — “Many extensions starve the browser’s processes”. Thanks!

via Echofon

@sallamar Talking about the many “REST” APIs out there that miss the hypermedia constraint. Do you make peace w/ them, too? I mostly do.

via Echofon in reply to sallamar

@sallamar Not sure if the eBay API is the most representative example for HTTP interfaces. It’s complex, but most HTTP APIs are dead-simple.
