Simple APIs With Jekyll and Github With Data Managed via Google Spreadsheets
I’m always looking for simpler, and cheaper ways of doing APIs that can help anyone easily manage data while making it available in both a human and machine readable way–preferably something developers and non-developers both will find useful. I’ve pushed forward my use of Github when it comes to managing simple datasets, and have a new approach I want to share, and potentially use across other projects.
You can find a working example of this in action with my OpenAPI Toolbox, where I’m looking to manage and share a listing of tooling that is built on top of the OpenAPI specification. Like the rest of my API research, I am looking manage the data in a simple and cheap way that I can offload the storage, compute, and bandwidth to other providers, preferably ones that don’t cost me a dime. While not a solution that would work in every API scenario, I am pretty happy with the formula I’ve come up with for my OpenAPI Toolbox.
