Most of the work in creating a RESTful API in CI3 is just building the controller(s) to handle your requests. To reinforce the API, you can use HTTP verbs in your routing configuration.

thank you for response but i want to create a simple backbone app, backbone simply supports restful api (put,push,post,get) how i can know that request is put or push or get or post(in controller itself not in router.config)?!
