Let’s Start With the Basics: What is an API?
An API abbreviation stands for Application Programming Interface. The name seems to speak for itself, but it is better to dive deeper into a detailed explanation. As already mentioned, primarily API is an interface. An interface that allows developers to use pre-built blocks to build an application. API in web applications on examples. Things like Google Maps, all kinds of mobile and desktop clients for Twitter and Facebook are built on the basis of the API. All their functions became possible due to the fact that the corresponding services have high-quality and well-documented API.
World Wide Web & Remote Servers
The World Wide Web can be considered as a huge network of linked servers that store every page. An ordinary laptop can be turned into a server capable of serving an entire site on the network, and local servers are used by developers to create websites before opening them to a wide range of users.
Let’s review a simple case, as an example, we’ll take www.facebook.com. The Facebook remote server sends the corresponding request when you are trying to reach the website. As soon as the browser receives a response, it interprets the code and displays the Facebook page. Each time a user visits a page on the network, they interact with the remote server API. The API is the part of the server that receives requests and sends responses.
