I don’t have any real programing experience, just some understanding…
Any information I find about RESTful API says it uses HTTP request GET, POST, PUT and DELETE. I know that’s exactly how HTML app works. (not sure about ‘app’) HyperText Transfer Protocol - HyperText Markup Language. They kind of go together.
When I use my web browser with the console open, watching network traffic, I can see:
2018-11-09T00:23:44.036Z [XHR] POST http://192.168.1.11:8885/batch ["/guide/series/107","/guide/series/276"]
2018-11-09T00:23:44.209Z [FindTitles] REST query finished. null
The “REST query finished” leads me to believe there’s not a lot of rewriting for every device out there… and a pc based browser is incapable of running a RESTful API - it’s all HTTP
