Who doesn't like a good book? But what if you really, really need to get some information about a book first? In that case you build a Flogo app that uses the Google APIs to get book information!

Building this app

From the Web UI

To load this app into the Flogo Web UI, you can upload the getbooks.json file and update the configuration you want.

From the command line

To get started from the command line, download the getbooks.json and update any variables you might want to update. Now, run flogo create -f getbooks.json booksapp to create a new Flogo app with the name booksapp.

To build and run the app, execute

cd booksapp
flogo build -e

Get some book details

After you start the app, open a new terminal window and execute

curl --request GET --url http://localhost:9999/books/0747532699

This will get you information on Harry Potter 1 and the Philosopher's Stone
