    Abstract

    Wish lists provide a convenient way to store desired items online, however, the services built into many online e-commerce vendors seldom provide extensive functionality that allows users to compare and contrast potential purchases from other vendors before buying. Additionally, these services are often confined to small areas of the vendor's website and aren't made accessible for a lot of users of varying platforms. This project aims to solve this problem by creating a wish list curation service that enables the user to create and share wish lists and compare potential purchases. The service is distributed via an 0Auth2 authenticated REST API, which is the technological focus of the project. The 0Auth2 REST API will allow third party developers to utilise the available data, and create applications for various platforms. This report documents the progress of the project and discusses its implementation, its successes and its pitfalL5 as it attempts to achieve its goal of creating a scalable production ready REST API solution. The final solution is available at http://wishlist.pw
