JSON API By Example

About the Book

This is a mini-book about  building applications with JSON API

Which version of JSON API is covered?

This book will follow JSON API version 1.0.

What do you mean with mini-book?

I refer to this as a mini-book because I want to make it short and to the point to help you get the basics behind `JSON API` and use the tools currently available in the `Ruby on Rails` world to build them.

Audience: Backend developers

In order to understand this book, you should have some basic Ruby on Rails knowledge and know HTTP basics too.

Why should I read this book?

If you want to learn about `JSON API` this book will walk you through the process. Used with Ember 101 you will be able to learn not only how to create backend applications with this spec but also how to connect it with a client in JavaScript.

What if I don't know Ruby on Rails?

That's fine, even though it is the target audience, you will be able to learn the basic following this book.
