Hello All, Today We can discuss on how we can Implement the external API from a different Web Service to be used on your Website.
What is an API? Application Process Interface
In computer programming, an application programming interface (API) is a set of subroutine definitions, protocols, and tools for building application software. In general terms, it is a set of clearly defined methods of communication between various software components. A good API makes it easier to develop a computer program by providing all the building blocks, which are then put together by the programmer. An API may be for a web-based system, operating system, database system, computer hardware or software library. An API specification can take many forms, but often includes specifications for routines, data structures, object classes, variables or remote calls. POSIX, Microsoft Windows API, the C++ Standard Template Library and Java APIsare examples of different forms of APIs. Documentation for the API is usually provided to facilitate usage.
How can API be helpful for your Website ?
Access any API from external source and GET the data’s in your system..
Any External source based API’s can be Integrated to your system with the help of the API Security Modules Implemented in your system. API data will be converted to the JSON file and this JSON data will be accessed from your JAVA SCRIPT Codes in your Website. This can also be manipulated from the backend using PHP or Python Codings.
What is a JSON File?
What is a REST API?
What is a RESTFUL API?
Learn to Code the External Integration of API in your Website using the below Steps..
Use the Above Java Script Codes to access the API data from the Link, https://randomuser.me/api/?results=20
This particular code will be accessing the data from the Java Script using the API and then this code will be converting the Data in the Link to the JSON File, Once the Conversion is Complete the data will be populated to the particular Java Script Variable and this can be populated in the Client End.
STEPS FOR ACCESSING THE API DATA AS BELOW:
- Provide the GET API in the Java Script Code.
- Convert the API to JSON Format so that can be accessed by the Java Script Codes.
- Map the Variables of the JSON to the Java Script Codes.
The Output will be as below,
