Nameko RPC & RESTful

Hi People,

I really like the Nameko/RabbitHQ microservice architecture and I’ve written a number of services that do stuff for me. RESTful just looks harder. However, if you’re in a bit of a fix I can see that RESTful might be useful (eg screen-scaping a webpage). RPC seems more scalable, because you can just spin up more. Not sure it’s so easy with webservers. However, when I research pros and cons of each, I get a bit confused. It seems to me that RPC/RabbitMQ is newer than REST, but Google says REST is newer What’s the real position? Maybe I’m not using the right terminology.

Thanks in advance.

Regards

Steve.
