More API stuff

February 10, 2020

So I realize that basically everything on the backend of this lending-library (see repo) is all wrong.

And I don’t really understand the essence of a good API.

Doubtless I will realize tomorrow that the front-end is all wrong too, and I should have gone to the bother of learning React…

Anyway, on APIs:
