Making APIs: restivus vs collection api


#1

I’ve created a simple blog app at http://askar-blog.meteor.com and now going to create a REST API to show Meteor is good.

I’m reading http://meteorpedia.com/read/REST_API and it lists Restivus and Collection API as a fast way to create REST APIs.

Can someone please advise which one do you recommend for the newbie like me to start with?

My personal impression that Collection API is easier to start wth…

Requirements (for now):

  1. Allow 3rd party apps to access the data
  2. Of course, authentication required

This is my first time to create a REST API in my life :wink:
