How to complete the challenge GET /todos 200.

How to solve the API challenge and issue a GET request to return all the Todos in default JSON format.

GET /todos (200)

Issue a GET request on the /todos end point

  • This will show you all the todos in the system
  • The return format is a useful guide for the syntax of the request you will send in POST messages
  • Perform a GET prior to any amendment or deletion, to make sure that the data in the system is what you expect it to be.
  • remember not to add a trailing / on the request e.g. /todos/ - that is a different end point
