I'm reading the Ciao library and can't make out the difference between Ciao REST server and Ciao REST connector.

When is the connector suitable and at what point do I need the server?

This is a graphic of what im thinking to do:

I don't know about "Ciao" but generally a rest server answers requests from a client that is connecting via a rest connector. You client will use POST, GET, PUT, etc. to ask the server to provide a service. This could be as simple as "GET .\index.htm" or more likely posting information to be stored in a database.

The server will sit waiting for these requests and will have handling routines for each specific request and might supply a response.

  • yes, im fully aware of REST as api but my queston is about the confusing thing that Ciao is used on a microprocessor board that has another cpu processor beside it. It hosts a LininoOS that is a full server. Now im connecting to a Raspberry Pi Server as well and i down't understand the different servers meaning. Thats why im asking so high level about the difference of the two libraries. – novski Mar 23 '18 at 7:56
