Web API Design, сrafting Interfaces that Developers Love, Mulloy B., 2012.

Introduction.

If you're reading this, chances are that you care about designing Web APIs that developers will love and that you're interested in applying proven design principles and best practices to your Web API. One of the sources for our design thinking is REST. Because REST is an architectural style and not a strict standard, it allows for a lot of flexibly. Because of that flexibility and freedom of structure, there is also a big appetite for design best practices. This e-book is a collection of design practices that we have developed in collaboration with some of the leading API teams around the world, as they craft their API strategy through a design workshop that we provide at Apigee.

Concrete names are better than abstract.

Achieving pure abstraction is sometimes a goal of API architects. However, that abstraction is not always meaningful for developers. Take for example an API that accesses content in various forms - blogs, videos, news articles, and so on. An API that models everything at the highest level of abstraction - as /items or /assets in our example - loses the opportunity to paint a tangible picture for developers to know what they can do with this API. It is more compelling and useful to see the resources listed as blogs, videos, and news articles. The level of abstraction depends on your scenario. You also want to expose a manageable number of resources. Aim for concrete naming and to keep the number of resources between 12 and 24. In summary, an intuitive API uses plural rather than singular nouns, and concrete rather than abstract names.
