I would like to build a simple REST API to serve JSON data and some basic CRUD operations. My only other requirement is to have some sort of authentication. It would ideally allow me to enter a list of data fields, populate those fields and then expose them via a RESTful service with some form of authentication. It must be compatible with angularjs $http (which I thought was all RESTful services but apparently not).
I've been using Dreamfactory but it layers some complexity that I don't want for a simple project and I'd rather not spin up my own in Express + NodeJs (although that is my fallback right now).
Ideally, a point-and-click interface to build a REST API that I can host myself, realistically anything that achieves what's outlined in the opening paragraph.
