10 Best Practices for Writing Node.js REST APIs. In this article we cover best practices for writing Node.js REST APIs, including topics like naming your routes, authentication, black-box testing & using proper cache headers for these resources.
RESTful API Designing guidelines — The best practices. Search. Untitled. Examples: Searching Twitter by location and with specific keywords - Thoughtfaucet. This page is part of the Twitter location search resource on Thoughtfaucet which contains tutorials for Tweetdeck and Hootsuite, examples, caveats and how to find latitude and longitude in order to make a geocode.
Here are a selection of Twitter searches by location. Each one has a geocode and map so you know how far it reaches. If you don’t find the search code you need in this reference, leave a comment and let me know what you’re after. I’ll update this reference. Twitter search can filter by the location of a Tweet if the user has location services turned on. Additional background on this concept is at the beginning of the online version of my Listening Strategy presentation.
Twitter-stream-channels. With the Twitter stream API, you can only open one stream at a time.
So, if you have multiple filters, the tweets in result will be mixed up, you'll need to do some post-processing. This module lets you open multiple channels with there own filters, on the same stream. And then, you can add events to each of them individually, to listen to there results, like if you had open multiple streams. twitter-stream-channels handles all the post-processing, the connexion layer (OAuth, etc ...) is handled by twit.
See the FAQ about both topics. Topheman-datavisual.herokuapp. Streaming API request parameters — Twitter Developers. Use the following request parameters to define what data is returned by the Streaming API endpoints: delimited This parameter may be used on all streaming endpoints, unless explicitly noted.
Setting this to the string length indicates that statuses should be delimited in the stream, so that clients know how many bytes to read before the end of the status message. Statuses are represented by a length, in bytes, a newline, and the status text that is exactly length bytes. Note that “keep-alive” newlines may be inserted before each length. As an example, consider this response to a request to The 1953 indicates how many bytes to read off of the stream to get the rest of the Tweet (including \r\n).
Stall_warnings Setting this parameter to the string true will cause periodic messages to be delivered if the client is in danger of being disconnected. Such warning messages will look like: filter_level language follow The stream will not contain: Tweets mentioning the user (e.g. Track Track examples: count. Twitter API Tutorial.

In this post, we will take a look at architecting a Node.js app that will act as a REST API server for all of our clients.
Once you learn a little bit of Node.js you find that modules make life much easier.
It also provides a global fetch() method that provides an easy, logical way to fetch resources asynchronously across the network. This kind of functionality was previously achieved using XMLHttpRequest. Fetch provides a better alternative that can be easily used by other technologies such as Service Workers. Fetch also provides a single logical place to define other HTTP-related concepts such as CORS and extensions to HTTP. The fetch specification differs from jQuery.ajax() in two main ways: The Promise returned from fetch() won’t reject on HTTP error status even if the response is an HTTP 404 or 500.
