An Electron-based API explorer for the Who's On First API.

Pictures or it didn't happen!

Caveats

Work in progress. This works but should still be understood as "tilting towards beta".

Install

First of all you will need to have Git, Node.js and npm installed. On a Mac these are all easy to install with the Homebrew package manager. On Linux all the dependencies are available via tools like apt or yum. On Windows I'm afraid I have no idea what the state of the art is these days.

Once all the dependencies are installed:

# Clone this repository
git clone https://github.com/whosonfirst/electron-whosonfirst-api-explorer

# Go into the repository
cd electron-whosonfirst-api-explorer

# Install dependencies
npm install

# Run the app
npm start

Pre-compiled native binaries are on the list but they haven't happened yet. Sorry.

What's up with the application icon?

is the Unicode character for a reference mark.
