As a follow-on to the original question Have you tried the new v1 REST APIs yet ? this document is intended to act as a quick start with links to useful resources.
Have you had a chance to download the latest Alfresco Community Edition 201707 GA Release and try them out ?
The incremental new public v1 REST APIs introduce features for managing nodes, people, groups, sites, shared-links (... and much more ...) as well built-in queries and new advanced search api for Solr. This is in addition to existing collaborative features, such as favourites, comments, ratings, tags & activities.
We would really appreciate your early feedback. Please comment here or in the forums. If you would like to suggest improvements or see any issues then please feel free to post a separate question or log an issue in JIRA (if repeatable).
