In this 5-minute video you will learn how to invoke a REST API from the server (instead of directly from the client. There are a number of benefits to invoke an API from the server:

  1. JavaScript is the language used to write the script (and you already know JavaScript!)
  2. Additional business logic can be added around the API. For example, in addition to sending an SMS, you can also send an email (SendGrid API)
  3. The API keys and tokens are secure
  4. Script is exposed via REST API (to be invoked from the app)
  5. Script has API to access Database, Push
  6. A script can be saved as a library and used in other scripts
  7. Script changes can be made without updating the client (app)
  8. It’s tool to write code :)
