Europeana provides an online database of cultural heritage objects in the form of books, audio clips, photos, art, etc. It contains objects pertaining to history, fashion, maps, natural history, architecture, and more. The Europeana REST API allows developers to integrate the ability to search and retrieve objects from the database into their own applications.
The following is a list of sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
