What is REST?
REST (stands for REpresentational State Transfer) is an architectural style that implements standards between computer systems on the Internet to make it simple for systems to interact with each other. REST has its own rules and limitations, just like different architectural styles. REST systems (also known as RESTful systems) are separate stateless client and server tasks.

API (Application Programming Interface) is a computational interface that describes how multiple software components interact and allows applications to exchange data between them.
