Automating Your World With Joomla
Unleash the true potential of your website with the Power of API.
You don't know what an API is?
An API (in this specific case a Web Service) allows machines to talk to each other through the network (internet).
That means that when for example you are using the Map App on your phone or desktop, in the "background" the app calls an API on another server all the away around the globe somewhere and gives your app back the information of the location you wanted to go to.( Navigation API, Geolocation API, Address API). That's how it works. That 's the big picture.
APIs "augment" the capabilities of your current website by giving it pluggable behaviors. (Payment API, Shipping API, Tax API, Weather API, etc...).
Now how is it useful to you?
Let's say you want to replicate your articles in bulk to multiple destination websites you own or split test an article headline variation reacting to a specific event. This can be done through APIs to ease, streamline and automate your publishing workflow.
