Yep, exactly.

For the human-friendly pages with forms on them, and the URIs that handle them, you probably canít get away with talking to the REST API directly, though. To be usable, the human interface often needs to handle updating multiple resources at once in some fashion, or may have functional aspects that canít be associated with any particular resource in the system. Trying to build an interface that rigidly follows the resource structure of an app just makes for a mediocre user experience, at best.

So Iíd have the bookmarkable friendly URIs be capable of returning both human-friendly and machine-readable representations via Accept, and maybe also have them respond to programmatic access (by PUTting/POSTting with a request body with XML or JSON or something like that), but Iíd have a separate URI space to handle the browser-based editing UI.

Makeshifts last the longest.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
