REST API in Python

Here is an example of a simple REST API built using Flask in Python:

In this example, we have defined five API endpoints:

  • /records: GET method to retrieve all records or POST method to create a new record
  • /records/<id>: GET method to retrieve a record by ID, PUT method to update an existing record, or DELETE method to delete a record

The jsonify function is used to convert the data to JSON format and return it to the client. The request object is used to retrieve data from the client’s request. The debug=True argument when running the application enables debug mode, which provides detailed error messages in case something goes wrong.
