#100DaysOfCode in Python Transcripts
Chapter: Days 61-63: Using the Github API with Python
Lecture: Third day: more practice / requests-cache
0:00 Right, welcome back to the third day of
0:02 the GitHub API project.
0:04 I hope you had some fun by now using the GitHub API
0:07 and you chose an interesting project to work on,
0:10 and this gives you some more links.
0:12 So here's the GitHub Developer REST API
0:15 Version 3 documentation.
0:17 You probably will use this a lot,
0:20 although it should also try to help in the pdb inspection
0:24 techniques I showed you in this lesson.
0:26 And maybe if you're not making the GitHub objects
0:29 with a token, you might run into limitations
0:33 of the amount of calls you can do to the API.
0:35 Here is an article about request cache.
0:38 The cache is close to the API in an SQI database,
0:42 so when you're developing your cool app,
0:45 and you do a lot of calls to the API,
0:48 this could actually be useful to
0:49 keep that limit down.
0:51 The other thing is that this might
0:52 speed up the response from the API,
0:55 because it just creates your local database.
0:57 So this just an extra pointer you might
0:59 want to check out when working with
1:02 any API actually.
1:03 And don't forget to share your work.
1:06 You can use #100DaysOfCode, there's a lot of people
1:09 doing that, and that's getting quite some traction.
1:13 And of course, feel free to include
1:15 Talk Python and PyBites in your tweets.
1:17 We are really passionate about this stuff,
1:20 and love to see what you guys are doing
1:23 and coming up with.
1:24 Have fun and go learn a lot of API GitHub goodness,
1:28 and Python of course.
