    Contrary to the direction most people go, I've been writing REST APIs as C++ servers using two different fairly full featured C++ REST frameworks: first using https://github.com/Corvusoft/restbed and more lately using https://github.com/Stiffstream/restinio. These can be peers with any other server, while living on embedded and/or high compute devices for video encode/decode/analysis, deployed ML models, encryption for and remote process communications, model data collection and similar expensive or in-field processing. In both high compute and in-field-no-internet situations creating REST APIs in C++ enables speed and system controls not present in the majority of the mainstream REST frameworks. It's a big world, and here comes ubiquitous high compute...

    There are some C++ API frameworks like Pistache or Restbed (full list here) to get started. If I should be 100% honest, I don't think C++ is worth for APIs as we have easier solutions with the same performance nowadays (like Go and Rust), but I think we should try everything, right?
