API Glossary

An educational and collaborative project with the mission to help define a new API industry.

  • Get the foundational knowledge you need to dive right into API use, design, and development.
  • Explain APIs and related technology to nontechs, without mumbling something from the RFC.
  • Develop your own API using industry leading standards, design patterns and documentation.


Any and all feedback, suggestions and lively discussions are highly encouraged.

Everyone is welcome to contribute by submitting a pull request, opening an issue or sharing the project. Existing terms are located in the terms directory and described using YAML frontmatter & markdown. Please make sure filenames contain no spaces and end with the .md extension.
