Having an API in my own name might seem pretty narcissistic. However, I have three good reasons for doing so:
- It shows I can write an API.
- The API is genuinely useful for keeping my website up-to-date. An update to my LinkedIn or Twitter profile is automatically reflected here without having to perform the update in multiple locations.
- I now have a good codebase that I can copy across for future APIs, should the need arise. Interested in seeing the code? It's on Github.
So, with my reasons justified, I invite you to read the API documentation.
