The Stripe Node.js Library by Stripe is a REST resource. The library API is designed for predictable, resource-oriented URLs and HTTP response codes to indicate API errors. Further, it aims to support the built-in HTTP features, like HTTP authentication and HTTP verbs with off-the-shelf HTTP clients, and the support cross-origin resource sharing to allow interaction with the API from a client-side web application. The returns are in JSON, including errors.
The company that launched the world's first grocery API now has a new mobile app, built upon its own platform. Anyone with a Tesco account and a Nokia phone can now add rhubarb and salad to their virtual cart while out and about. Like the API itself, the app gives us a glimpse of how we might all shop in the future, even if the future is just next year.
