Api articles

An API, or Application Programming Interface, is a set of protocols, routines, and tools for building software and applications. An API defines the way that different software systems should interact, and allows for communication between different systems.

APIs are often used to allow third-party developers to access the functionality of a service or application. For example, a weather website may provide an API that allows other websites or apps to access current weather data. This allows developers to build new applications that use the data provided by the weather website, without having to create their own weather data collection system.

APIs can also be used to allow different parts of a system to communicate with each other. For example, a mobile app may use an API to access a database on a remote server, in order to retrieve information to display to the user. This allows the app to remain relatively simple, while the API handles the more complex task of communicating with the database.

APIs can be based on different protocols, such as HTTP, SOAP, or gRPC, and can return data in different formats, such as JSON or XML.
