Recent investigations show how users can be authenticated via web without using passwords. It’s called WebAuthn or Web Authentication that uses a Web API in a browser. Clients can be verified with their phones, hardware keys, or trusted devices. In his article, Nick Steele explains the new standards
When you work with a Serverless API, you focus on the application, not the servers. Scalability is flexible and availability automated. The original tutorial links to a crash course on Serverless with Node available here: https://hackernoon.com/a-crash-course-on-serverless-with-node-js-632b37d58b44
The OpenRates API exchanges rate and converts currency in real time. Access the latest rates, historical rates, and base currency. You can learn how to access live data in this tutorial. Go back to the archives because the Rates API offers historical exchange rates beginning in 1999.
When Google opened its Tensor Flow machine learning (ML) tech, it also unleashed a tidal wave of possibilities, potentially triggering a tipping point as businesses begin to understand what ML can do for them. But for many ML remains an enigma. This tutorial is for those of us who are such mortals.
This article should help you learn how to build an API without a server by using Go language. The author, Tom Maiaroto, built Aegis, an open source framework and deploy tool that uses a RESTful API, aiming to simplify, scalate, and speed up development.
For certain kinds of tasks it can be tricky to get around API rate limits. A prime example would be implementing an incremental search with a third-party API. Ed Ellison over at the Mint Digital blog shows you how you can do it with a little help from GenStage and WebSockets.
The YouTube Data API can be used to upload and search for videos, manage playlists and subscriptions, update channel settings and more. In part 3 of this tutorial, we continue to extend our code and show you how to use the API to build a simple app that can return the contents of a playlist.
The YouTube Data API can be used to upload and search for videos, manage playlists and subscriptions, update channel settings and more. In part 2 of this tutorial, we'll extend our code from part one and show you how to use the API to build a simple app that can return the contents of a playlist.
GraphQL is seen by some as the beginning of the end for RESTful APIs. GraphQL lets you get all the data you want in the way you want from an API while only ever calling one endpoint. But where to get started? Scott Domes over at MuseFind will take you from zero to hero in only twenty minutes.
In 2015 Google announced Progressive Web Apps. At the heart of PWA is the use of Service Workers that act as a proxy server that is located between the web application in the browser and the network. This article looks at the functionality that Angular 5 has brought to work with Service Workers.
Developers use the Bing SearchAPIs to add web search functionality to their applications. This functionality includes search across web pages as well as news items, videos, images and more. In this article we provide an introduction to the various Search APIs functionality and call them.
In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to build a Shopify app from scratch with Node. You’ll learn how to request an access token from a shop and then make an API call. First, you’ll need to create a public HTTPS address for the purposes of authentication.
The YouTube Data API can be used to upload and search for videos, manage playlists and subscriptions, update channel settings and more. In this tutorial, we'll review the YouTube Data API portal and show you how to use the API to build a simple app that can return the contents of a playlist.
We recently wrote about a post from CodePen.io that suggested a way of keeping API keys private when publicly sharing code samples. This time, we've gone back to that idea, given a try, and dogfooded it. We used JSBin to not only show how it works, we've embedded the "bin" in our tutorial.
API documentation, as we all know, is rarely comprehensive and almost never up-to-date. An alternative way to get to know an API is by intercepting API calls from a mobile app and examining how they work. Here Jan Schwoebel over at his blog will show you how you can easily do that for iOS apps.
Inventory monitoring solutions make it easy for businesses to predict production demands and inventory spoilage remotely to increase efficiency and profits. This tutorial shows you how to leverage Twilio Functions to build an industrial sensor to monitor temperature, humidity and object weight.
In this, developer-blogger Alex Kras shows us how to overcome the 60 second audio file limitation of the free tier of Google's Cloud Speech API by taking a longer audio file, breaking it up into short chunks, and then cycling through those chunks to make a complete transcription.
An API Gateway is a design pattern often used in microservice architecture to provide a single access point to the underlying system. In this article, Mateusz Korszun from Meltwater explains why it's crucial to have meaningful tests for their API gateway. He also shows you the test setup their use.
GraphQL was created by Facebook to solve nagging issues with RESTful APIs like having to make multiple roundtrips to the server to fetch required data. Tech titans like GitHub and Shopify are already using it in production but many businesses have yet to take the leap.
