In this chapter, we have built a basic RESTful API using Flask. We did CRUD (Create, Read, Update, Delete) operations on our recipes, and through this, you should have grasped the concepts and fundamentals of APIs. We have also talked about relevant concepts, such as HTTP methods, HTTP status codes, JSON, and routing. We wrapped up the chapter by showing you different ways (command prompt, GUI) to test the web services that we have built.
After laying a good foundation, in the next chapter, we will continue to develop our recipe sharing platform step by step. You will learn the whole process of RESTful API development. Just stay with us, the best is yet to come!
