What Is a REST API?

A REST API, or Representational State Transfer Application Programming Interface, is a standardized way for software applications to communicate with each other over the internet. It allows systems to request and exchange data in a stateless, efficient, and flexible manner. REST APIs use standard HTTP methods (GET, POST, PUT, DELETE) and follow specific conventions for data representation, enabling seamless interactions between different software components and services.
