Adding More Features0:42 with Alena Holligan
We only touched on a fraction of the features available through the GitHub API. Solidify what you've learned by enhancing your application with additional API interactions. Additionally, take the principles and technologies you've learned in this course to connect to other RESTful APIs.
Suggestions for Enhancements
- Allow unauthenticated users to search repos and view project repos
- Show additional Repository Details
- Show an about page with your GitHub User details
- Create/Read/Edit Gists
- Add this project as a repository:
- add enhancement ideas as issues
- display project issues
- display project commits
- display other project details
Documentation for Other APIs
Congratulations on setting up your GitHub client.
We only touched on a fraction of the features available through the GitHub API.
Practice what you've learned by enhancing your application with additional API
If you need some additional suggestions,
check the notes associated with this video.
The principles and
technologies you've learned in this course apply to any RESTful API.
If you can't find a wrapper library, you can always connect using curl.
Take some time in the next week and
try connecting to another API such as Twitter, Facebook or Google.
By choosing a project that is interesting to you, you'll be having fun and
learning at the same time.
