The paper analyzes and presents the architecture of REST systems construction. What is the REST API and why it should be used? It describes the basic principles for what the system could be called Restful. Examples of REST-like systems, their comparison, advantages, and disadvantages of REST, and why this particular architecture was chosen, have been given. It aims at which technologies can be used for the REST system, etc. A description of all technologies used during the development of this system, with all the advantages and disadvantages of using certain technologies and the system in general have been considered. A description of the development environment and some of its functions have been provided. Implementation of the REST system is based on the web application of the forum.
