Some example of how to driven good API -[..]al/2009/5/11/good-api-design-part-3.html

It's not enough to write tests for an API you develop, you have to write unit tests for code that uses your API. When you do, you learn first-hand the hurdles that your users will have to overcome when they try to test their code independently.[..]MichaelFeathers.TheGoldenRuleOfApiDesign

Consistent naming conventions
Standard terminology
Uniform error responses
Attention to detail (that’s the love part for APIs)
REST APIs that work with only 2 resources and use 4 HTTP verbs (oh, there is so much more to talk about here…)
Avoid API design by way of method-driven approach – that leads you down a slippery slope
