All communication to the service is done as an HTTPS:// (SSL) request using a GET, PUT, POST or DELETE. All data is sent and returned in a JSON-formatted text message, which can be created and consumed used by any web page or device app framework on the planet.
Using a bespoke REST API service, any front-end developer is now able to roll-out projects by an order of magnitude faster and better. Web pages and device apps can change as much as required or moved to any platform without any risk of breaking anything in the back-end. REST APIs are fairly quick to implement and change. Testing can be script-based and all security, hosting, backups and all the more technical and data concerns can be considered as 'baked-in'.
A robust, bespoke REST API from APIs for Africa is quick to develop, and deploy and highly cost-effective to use.
