Using the GithubAPI with PHP - trailer0:45 with Alena Holligan
Application Programming Interfaces, or APIs, provide a method for connecting your site to a “third-party” web service. We'll use the GitHub API to explore how RESTful APIs allow us to retrieve and update information residing on an external system.
Hi, I'm Alena.
The web make sharing information easy.
You can find instructions for fixing your car building, a house, and
even learning to program.
You can share pictures and events with friends and family all over the world.
Sharing information is such a huge part of the web
that many websites let you access their content with more than just web browser.
Using an API, developers can make information available in other places.
Information like tweets on Twitter, posts on Facebook, and photos from Flickr.
In this project, we'll be connecting to the GitHub API.
Not only are we able to retrieve data, we can also change that data as well and
all within the confines of our application.
