PoetryDB is an API for internet poets. Developers can use the API to get results of the name (or part of the name), of the author of a poem, title (or part of the title), of a poem, lines (or part lines) of a poem, number of lines, including section headings, but excluding empty lines (eg. section breaks) from text inputted by users. The API is written in Ruby and uses Sinatra to resolve API routes. The poetry data is stored in a MongoDB database. The Ruby code is provided here as Open Source. The PoetryDB database is not directly accessible, in order to preserve its integrity.
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.
