Web API Component Example (with videos)




One component I’ve been interested in lately is the Web API. The Web API enables your app to retrieve data from a service on the web like weather patterns or currency exchange rates over the past 20 years.

In my example, I use the https://www.openbrewerydb.org/ API to search for microbreweries by city and state. You can find this API and many others here: https://github.com/toddmotto/public-apis.

Tutorial 1

My first tutorial covers the basics of calling, reading, and display data from a web API.

Tutorial 2

My second tutorial dives one level deeper to show how to dynamically populate an API call URL to query the API based on the user’s request.



In Closing

I hope this helps you, and I’d love to see examples of how you are using the Web API component in your app. :face_with_monocle: :relieved:

Happy Coding!
