I have been developing some APIs with Grails lately as opposed to traditional web apps. I’m going to be giving a talk at GR8CONF US this summer about this topic too.
So, I thought it would be fun to create a screencast with some tips for getting started building APIs with Grails! The screencast covers content types, API URL mappings, customizing JSON output with marshallers and even Rob Fletcher’s GSON plugin. I unfortunately recorded this screencast on a MacBookPro as opposed to an iMac and there’s some background noise because of the MBP fan. First and last time I use a MBP for a screencast, ha! Hopefully it doesn’t distract from the content too much. Thanks for watching!
The sample app built in the screencast is located on GitHub.
