Open application services as API

We have developed an application which is running fine.
Our next step is to open our application services as the RESTFUL API for
other applications.

Can anyone tell me how could I proceed to this?



Without a few more details it’s hard to say, so I’ll make some

  • You have token based authentication.
  • Your controllers and routes are already setup in a RESTful pattern.
  • Serializing your models is not a big deal.

If these assumptions hold, all you need to is follow the pattern set
forth by the scaffold generators: depending on the format requested,
respond in kind with the serialization format you desire. If the
middle assumption does not hold, make an “/api/” namespace and define
new routes for your API.
