I have a JSONAPI entering production, and it’s not at all bad. However, I need to solve a few things on the side, things that don’t really fit well into the tabular model.
For example, I have a users resource and users with about four attributes and five relationships, all very nice. But then I have “user forgot password, server should email a recovery URL at its early convenience”, which doesn’t fit at all.
I have another couple of things like that — things that simply aren’t tabular data, even though most of the API is. How have others attached such extra calls into a mostly-JSONAPI?
Maybe I’m too eager to get a harmonious result here.
