The Cooper-Hewitt Python SDK is a resource to access API collections' data in REST format. Repository includes installation and example using a Proxy. Some of the local projects that could be created with the API considering a museum scenario include collection explorer, immersion room, mansion history, body scanner, and process lab apps.
London's Science Museum, founded in 1851, houses a number of historical innovations, including the oldest surviving steam locomotive, and a replica of Babbage's Difference Engine. Now, with the rollout of a new API to provide access to information about some of its exhibits, the museum itself has become an example of technological innovation.
As discussed in my previous post, COPE (Create Once, Publish Everywhere) is a fundamental philosophy that drives NPR's digital publishing and distribution strategy and is the foundation of the NPR API. Supporting it all is a single system that manages all incoming content and funnels it out through a single distribution pipe, regardless of content type or destination. A key principle that supports COPE is ensuring that content is stored in a modular way.
