Glossary / API


API stands for Application Programming Interface. It is a set of rules and protocols that allows different software applications to communicate and interact with each other. APIs define the methods and data formats that applications can use to request and exchange information. They enable developers to access and use the functionality of other software components or services without having to understand the underlying implementation details. APIs are commonly used in web development to integrate different systems, access external services, and build software applications that can interact with other software components.
