An API, or Application Program Interface, enables developers to integrate one app with another. They expose some of a program's inner workings in a limited way. You can use APIs to get information from other programs or to automate things you normally do in your web browser.
What's so special about learning API Integration Using Python through Braingroom's Whatsapp Edubots?
When you conventionally learn anything online, you would go on the flow of how the course is structured where in with our Learning Bots you can focus on the areas which you need to by choosing which ones to do on priority with respect to the experiences you've had in your past interviews. Thereby, customizing the bot to your needs.
Making API Requests in Python
In order to work with APIs in Python, we need tools that will make those requests. In Python, the most common library for making requests and working with APIs is the requests library. The requests library isn’t part of the standard Python library, so you’ll need to install it to get started.
Making Our First API Request
There are many different types of requests. The most commonly used one, a GET request, is used to retrieve data. Because we’ll just be working with retrieving data, our focus will be on making ‘get’ requests.
When we make a request, the response from the API comes with a response code which tells us whether our request was successful. Response codes are important because they immediately tell us if something went wrong.
To make a ‘GET’ request, we’ll use the
requests.get() function, which requires one argument — the URL we want to make the request to. We’ll start by making a request to an API endpoint that doesn’t exist, so we can see what that response code looks like.
Through this course we help you do that by discussing on topics such as,
- Calling API method
- New bot creation
- Telegram new page create
- Candlestick chart
- Upstock APP
- Websockets vs API Polling
