Join Kirsten Hunter for an in-depth discussion in this video Subscriptions, part of Building APIs Using Hapi in Node.js.
- [Instructor] Now, what can we do in order…to provide the best possible data for our users…without exposing them to the performance…and reliability issues caused…when we need to make the API calls dynamically?…Fitbit provides a mechanism for subscribing…to updates so that you can go grab the data…as soon as its available.…This means you don't need to constantly query…the Fitbit API for information.…Let's walk through the setup and you can see some code…in the exercises demonstrating how this works.…To work with subscriptions,…you'll need to follow these steps.…
First, update the application on the Fitbit…developer portal using manage application.…Next, add a POST to the subscription endpoint…to start listing for updates.…Handle POSTs back to the application…from the subscription service…and then deploy the application to the Internet.…Now the first thing you're going to need to do…is manage the application within the developer portal…on Fitbit to tell it you want to subscribe to changes.…So open up your browser.…
