Hmm, that makes sense. But who tells the forms and stuff to do there thing?

Maybe I'm answering my own question, but I guess I've done more with forms doing backend stuff. Frontend wouldn't be worrying about get and post.

You'll still worry about GET and POST on the frontend - what you won't worry about is how those are implemented. You want to be able to post the right data to the right endpoint and then just assume the server's state gets updated properly. Then when you next make a GET, the data returned will reflect any changes youve made, but your frontend code doesn't need to know how or why or what, just what endpoints to hit.
