In the last blog post, we learned how to implement RESTful APIs using Compojure-API & Toucan. We are going to generalise that example by creating a little abstraction around it.
The abstraction that we are going to create is going to help us in creating similar RESTful endpoints for any domain entities with less code.
Let's dive in!
The Book Entity To abstract what we did there, we need a few more specific implementation.
In my last blog post on our experiences in using Clojure in production, I mentioned that we used Compojure API and Toucan to implement CRUD APIs. The abstraction that we created using these libraries helped us to create HTTP CRUD APIs for any domain entity in a matter of minutes. In this small blog-post series, I am going to share how we did it.
This first part is going to focus on developing a RESTful CRUD APIs for a specific domain entity.
