The Star Wars API Node.js SDK by Stephan Tabor is a Node.js wrapper for the Star Wars API. The Star Wars API aims to provide programmatic access to a trove of databased Star Wars film information, including Planets, Spaceships, Vehicles, People, Films and Species sourced from all six Star Wars films.
As the database market continues to expand, many start-ups in the space are focusing on honing their key points of differentiation to carve out a customer market. FoundationDB -- with founders from the Adobe-acquired Visual Sciences -- believes that their transactional, API-at-the-core database software will continue to increase in importance as customers seek a NoSQL solution with the reliability of SQL. Cofounder and CEO of FoundationDB David Rosenthal spoke with ProgrammableWeb about how customers are using FoundationDB and why it is worth having an "extremely opinionated API" at its center.
