So you’ve installed DreamFactory and connected to your database, maybe you’ve tried a few API calls in API docs but what’s next? Certainly not writing the server-side code since DreamFactory graciously autogenerated your API endpoints. How about a REST client, perhaps we’ll start with a simple GET? Yeah! That sounds like a safe bet!

Simply put a GET request is a request for a representation of a resource, resource being the URL and the representation being the data. GET is considered safe since it won’t change the state of the resource.
