Now that we have access to a user’s Twitter data, we need to use the data in our application. In this video, you will learn about Twitter’s API concepts, such as cursored collections and bulk APIs.
- [Instructor] In the previous video, we learned how…to get an access token to access a user's data.…In this video, we are going to take a look at…tweeting and searching using Twitter's REST API.…Then we will talk about accessing cursored collections…using our Twitter API resources that contain…too much data to fit in one response.…Finally you will use a powerful NOJS module called…Async.js to combine the data that we get…from multiple API requests.…Let's open Twitter's REST API logs.…On this page we can get information about Twitter's…rate limits and tips for consuming the APIs correctly.…
I encourage everyone to take some time…to read the documentation.…On the left side of the page, we can see a list…of all API endpoints.…First there are the statuses.…Media is here, direct messages, friendships, friends,…account APIs, users and so on.…Notice that this API looks different from the ones…that we looked at in section one.…The API only uses the get and post methods…and post methods are used on procedure endpoints…
This Node.js training course gives you an overview of a RESTful API and the logical steps of building one. It explores three different APIs, focusing on their similarities and differences to effectively implement one. Author Saleh Hamadeh starts off by defining APIs, showing how they can be built on top of HTTP and listing the properties that make an API RESTful. Then learn how to develop Twitter Notes, a sample web application that lets its users leave notes for their Twitter friends. You'll use Twitter's API to implement a login flow and then design a web API. In addition, you'll get a closer look at two other real-world APIs—Facebook API and GitHub API. Finally, learn some best practices to keep APIs secure, maintainable, and efficient.
