OpenFEMA API - As part of the OpenFEMA initiative, FEMA is providing read-only API based access to datasets (Entities). The data is exposed using a RESTful interface that uses query string parameters to manage the query. Use of the service is free and does not require a subscription or API key.

A valid #OpenAPI spec is a must, but it is even more critical that the #API respects the OpenAPI contract

Here is a tool to check request/response as they happen

I am deep in pondering the multi-protocol producer and consumer reality and relationship that exists via the @getpostman platform.

I love that I got an email explaining a status code to me from an API provider I am using.

Just spotted that Cloudflare have their own open source Mastodon-compatible ActivityPub server called Wildebeest:

Looks like public code was first shared three weeks ago

"Wildebeest runs on top Cloudflare's Supercloud, uses Workers and Pages, the D1 database to store metadata and configurations, Zero Trust Access to handle authentication and Images for media handling" - so presumably it's mainly intended as a demo app to show what can be done with their stack?

Many people ask, "What's next for the Fediverse?"

Building more infrastructure!

This means protocols, frameworks, instances, and clients.

And while we're at it, documentation as well.

But what's apparent to me is that the Fediverse will *not* be built by Big Social, but by small developers and enthusiasts that believe in its mission.

It's the Fediverse's core mission (freedom, safety, open protocols, de-centralization) that makes it captivating.

Playing around with the #Mastodon #API I tried to see what was the simplest possible Mastodon client I could write.

So far I've only implemented reading of public feeds (federated, local, and hashtags), but I found I was able to implement that in about 300 lines of JavaScript and a small amount of custom #HTML and #CSS.

To keep things simple, I stuck as closely as possible to #SemanticHTML.

#GraphQL can be a great choice for client-to-server communication, but it requires investment to maximize its potential. Netflix operates a very large, #FederatedGraphQL platform. Like any distributed system, this has some benefits but also creates additional challenges.

I am perpetually mesmerized by the types of APIs that exist. Here is a "Forces API" -
