What is a RESTful API?

REST is an architectural style for building APIs. It stands for “Representational State Transfer”. It means when we build an API, we build it in a way that HTTP methods and URIs mean something, and the API has to respond in a way that’s expected.

Something about OAuth 2.0

The OAuth 2.0 is an authorization framework which enables a third-party application to obtain limited access to an HTTP service.
