Single purpose API
URI Query String/CRUD
It may not have been the zombie apocalypse, but the recent government shutdown stopped the flow of open data via APIs and raised questions about how API developers and API providers can best handle a crisis in future. Now, 21 days later, we examine the impact and fallout of the shutdown, and look at how a similar situation could be avoided in both the US and anywhere that developers are making use of government open data in their API workflows.
Developers who want to participate in a beta release of a write-enabled version of the We The People API are encouraged to sign up right now on the White House blog.
The United States’ White House has developed a set of API standards they are hoping will be used across all government agencies. The standards were developed following a number of API releases, including the White House’s We The People API that allows citizen petition collection and lodgement. The new API standards document naming conventions, minimum requirements, and best practices for RESTful interfaces, while also acknowledging the importance of offering a “positive developer experience” through their API releases.
