Hello Everyone, I am Toshendra Sharma, your instructor.
In this (Non-coding) course you will learn how to design or write the actionable RESTful API specifications using API Blueprints. We will also learn how to convert/render them into awesome actionable 2-3 column API docs using a tool within a second & host them live on internet.
You can use the APIs specs to hire a freelancer developer to implement the server side code & pay them based on the specifications.
This course has been created for the people who are:
For their projects/products to define the specifications of RESTful APIs & also it's documentations which can be embedded anywhere to build the full fledged product. This one hour course will quickly let you build the specifications in one small .apib doc & let you convert into .html page which can be shared with anyone or hosted anywhere.
This API blueprint can also be used to host the API docs at Apiary directly.
If you are excited to create awesome API documentations within an hour then join in the course and learn to build RESTful APIs quickly.
This current lecture is to understand what are we going to learn in this course. We will explore the lecture by lecture and explain why it is important to learn whatever we are learning.
Here we will be learning what are RESTful APIs & also explore what exactly API blueprint is. We will also learn the other alternatives of API blueprint like RAML & Swagger.
Here we will be setting up the blueprint editor & also install the open source tool for converting the api blueprint into beautiful 3 column api documentation.
Here we will start writing the API Blueprint & will see how to start with format specification, meta data, name, end point & description.
In this Lecture we will write the resource groups, resources & their respective actions based on HTTP methods.
Here we will be learn how to put variables in URI template & parameters to specify more data in requests.
