Table of Contents


RESTHeart is the most popular REST API for MongoDB. All MongoDB's capabilities can be automatically accessed via a complete REST API.

RESTHeart provides out-of-the-box:

  1. Data persistence via MongoDB.
  2. Secure Identity and Access Management.
  3. Complete REST API with JSON messages.

RESTHeart is a modern backend for Web and Mobile apps, designed to radically simplify server-side development and deployment.

RESTHeart comes with complete functionalities out of the box, but you can extend it with Java to implement custom services.


The full documentation is available here.
