Hvordan kan man benytte FotoWare RESTful API til at integrere med andre systemer, f.eks. CMS og WEB?

Why API?

As Forbes referred to 2017 as the year of the API economy, how far have we come? Wait, hold on a sec; shouldn’t we first define what an API is, how they've developed over time, and look at the possibilities that they bring? Good Idea! API stands for Application Programming Interface. It's defined as “a way of communication with a particular computer program or internet service” according to the Cambridge Dictionary. To put things into perspective, it’s actually thanks to an API integration that we’re able to create and share the great content that we regularly publish.

From taking selfies to 'there's an app for that'

Given the ubiquity of software and its different applications in our modern society, chances are you are aware of the technology; you may even depend on it without knowing about it. For example, when you take a picture on your mobile phone and upload it to Instagram, that's your cell phone speaking to Instagram via their API. The need for APIs has arisen through time as different pieces of software from different vendors needed to talk to each other. With the development of the web, and especially with the ‘there’s an app for that’ craze that happened a few years ago, there's pretty much an API for anything you might want to do with your content as well.
