The purpose of APIs.is is to make data readily available to anyone interested. All data that is delivered through APIs.is is JSON formatted and scraped from open public websites.
The code that is running the service is open source under the MIT licence. The platform itself is hosted on a load balanced setup by GreenQloud to be as antifragile as possible. The hosted service does not store any information, so all data is gathered on runtime and disregarded immediately afterwards.
Don't hesitate to lend a hand - All knowledge and help is much appreciated!
Currently there are two types of tests, integration and unit tests. All tests are created using Mocha.
To run the integration tests:
node_modules/mocha/bin/mocha test/integrationormocha test/integration
To run the unit tests:
node_modules/mocha/bin/mocha test/unitormocha test/unit
endpoints/directory with the name of your endpoint.
var app = ;app;
Add integration tests to the endpoint by creating a file called
integration_test.js inside a
tests/ folder within your endpoint directory. For reference, please take a look at one of the integration tests.
Add documentation for your endpoint
To ensure close to zero downtime, the plan is to start up more workers/servers around the world so that projects relying on this service will not be affected. Want to help out with that? Feel free to send us a line!
