Free Preview: Rethinking APIs With Falcor

Introduction

01:39

Falcor is a JavaScript library that reimagines the coding of APIs. Using Falcor, we are able to allow our consumers to be very specific about the data that they want back and only return that information—as much or as little of it as they want. Falcor wraps all the data requests and updates in a uniform protocol, which makes it easy to implement API access both on the client and server. This sidesteps some of the complexity of the RESTful API paradigm, making APIs easier to implement and more efficient at serving data.

In this course, you'll dive into this new framework and see how you can incorporate it into your current applications. You'll learn how to set up a Falcor model, get and update data, work with a JSON Graph, and more.
