Gob Shop, tshirts et vêtements ! The lie of the API | Ruben Verborgh Really, nobody takes your website serious anymore if you don’t offer an API. And that’s what everybody did: they got themselves a nice API. An enormous amount of money and energy is wasted on developing APIs that are hard to create and even harder to use. This is wonderful news for developers, who get paid to build two pieces of software—a server and a client—that were actually never needed in the first place. The API was there already: it’s your website itself. Shockingly, a majority of developers seems unable to embrace the Web and the important role URLs and hypermedia play on it. Imagine you’re a Web publisher. In the beginning, it was easy: you made whatever content you had available as HTML. The problem is that software deals badly with unstructured content, so the people-friendly HTML does not work anymore. Before we have time to think about a solution, our friends the developers have already found one. Unfortunately, you’ve been lied to. Example: the DPLA API Access for people

Installation Use package manger and install "Web Inspector" Comments Valnoir est le mustang enragé du graphisme français Depuis une douzaine d’années, Jean-Emmanuel Simoulin, dit « Valnoir », réalise des artworks pour Laibach, Ulver, Peste Noire, Watain et plein de groupes de black metal. Quand il n’est pas en train de dessiner des trucs morts, il imprime des affiches en sang humain ou tourne un clip en Corée du Nord. Il nous a parlé de tout ça dans son atelier parisien en buvant du mauvais rouge. Comment es-tu tombé dans le chaudron du metal ? Y’a un côté « clés en main » dans le metal, on te donne un code esthétique, une attitude, des fringues, dès que tu commences à écouter… C’est un ensemble ouais, et tu fais tout pour foncer tête baissée dans le cliché. Quand as-tu fondé ton studio, Metastazis ? Comment on se retrouve à bosser avec des groupes comme ceux dont tu as fait l’artwork ? Tu n’utilises pas que l'esthétique des régimes totalitaires, mais aussi plein d’autres références historiques. Pourquoi cet avertissement à l’entrée du site ? Ah ouais, bien avant que tu sois « établi » en fait.
