Discussion on: Good Bye Web APIs

Layr removes the pain of building a web API but this doesn't mean that the frontend is magically connected to the backend. Under the hood, there is a web API using the Deepr specification.

So if you want to implement a frontend in another language than JavaScript, you can send Deepr requests with an HTTP POST. The same applies to the backend, you can build an HTTP server that receives Deepr requests.

Also, Layr starts in the JavaScript world but it can be ported to any object-oriented language. So, it is possible to dream of a future where we have Layr for Ruby, Python, PHP, Swift, Kotlin, etc. 😇
