C++ REST SDK
REST library: production 'ready'

Have there been any attempts to build a REST API service on top of either Boost.asio or Boost.beast?

While it's not based on Boost Asio or Beast, Microsoft maintains a SDK for developing REST api's using C++, aptly named the C++ REST SDK. Here you can find the Github page. It pretty much covers everything you'd come to expect from a modern webserver package. It does come with a steep learning curve however.

I never thought I'd laud microsoft on open source software but this has certainly made my life easier... I mean come on, MIT licensed and everything...

>But is it truly practical to use in 'higher-abstraction' apps like web or mobile?
Yes absolutely. Once you become familiar with the language the barrier is not that high. Familiarity trumps everything else.
That said, since i am not a Web/mobile developer i had collected some resources to help me learn how to use C++ for Web/Mobile apps, you may find it useful;
cpprestsdk in maintenance mode
17 projects | reddit.com/r/cpp | 8 Jun 2021
I was starting a project that needs to read data with rest API and I'd like to use cpprestsdk from Microsoft. But it's readme says that's in maintenance mode and it's not recommended for new projects... I'd like to know why it's in maintenance mode, and if it will be abandoned. Also, if there's some equivalent library for cpp, instead of creating the business logic from scratch, i.e. with boost::beast.
How to use C++ as backend

So, if you're going that route, you can use one of the many HTTP wrappers around Boost::ASIO or something purpose-built like Pistache or Casablanca.
