What exactly is the API?
I’ll explain with a comparison: The Google Maps API changed how interactive maps were used on the internet. Not only did they make maps easier for the end user to browse and search, but easier for the developer and web-designer to set up and maintain. Google provided a generic map interface, and developers could extend and modify it to their hearts content. Suddenly it was incredibly easy to set up a map with custom locations and text filled right in!
Neat! What can I do with it?
Anything you want! Here are some ideas to get your noggin working:
- Show an interactive calendar on your website or blog
- Integrate Jotlet into your web-based product or application
- Build a widget for your favorite web-desktop of choice
- Let people add meeting requests to your schedule straight from your website
- Even design your very own web calendar application
Strictly speaking, the sky is the limit!
