API Endpoints WIP 2021-07-15 & New Tech Teams Link

We’ve been chugging along defining the API endpoints. The file linked below is last week’s efforts, though it rests in an incomplete state; we’ve come to the limits of comfortably defining things like JSON responses and HTTP methods within Excel. You can count on the endpoints, HTTP methods, and meanings themselves being well set at… Continue reading API Endpoints WIP 2021-07-15 & New Tech Teams Link

While not an official Sandpiper Framework project, it’s something we’re using internally to hash out concepts and find the bits we’re missing.
