At minimum, this implies that you are implementing a web server (either
from scratch, or by plugging your code into some existing web server) to
listen for and respond to the HTTP requests.

Have you already chosen which web server will be receiving requests?

There are existing frameworks (Flask, Django) that make it relatively
straightforward to implement a REST API — that is, relative to writing
it from scratch!

Even using such a framework, you would still be accepting the burden of
implementing and deploying a full web service.
