View Full Version : APIs?

09-02-2009, 12:45 AM
I have been reading about API and came across many APIs such as youtube API, and even jquery API!

But I still not quite get it - what does all these APIs (application programming interface) mean actually? what is it for? What is the goodness about it?

is jquery itself an API?? how about other programming languages such as PHP - can it be an API too? HTML? XML??

can we make an API then?

Many thanks,
