AppMachine API - Tutorial Overview

For whom is this tutorial?

For anyone who wants to create a data store containing their own info and connecting the data with individual users that are logged in to their app in order to show personal content.

Remarks:

We've written this tutorial in a pretty straight forward manner so that anyone with some experience in building forms and using web services in AppMachine can follow it. It’s a long tutorial that covers almost everything regarding the AppMachine API and the different options of the REST web service (GET / POST / PUT). We've intentionally left the DELETE option out of this tutorial, since this is not yet 100% available at this time.

What are we going to build?

We are going to make a shop app where users can make/update a profile and add items to their wish list. We’ve split this tutorial into several chapters.
