Last week we learn how to write API documentation using Swagger, this week, let's take what we learned and use our API to create and remove pages within our SammyJS application.

A few weeks ago, we create a REST API driven application that uses SammyJS to create pages from a MySQL database. Today, we take what we did and add in the additional functionality from our CRUD API to build a function that automatically creates and removes SammyJS page templates.

Essentially, you can use this to build a front end website using AJAX and your REST API with one code base, no more needing to create page templates manually, let the API create your page templates for you.
