Before you begin using the NPR Story API, you might be wondering what an API is and how it works. Put simply, an API is an interface that applications can use to share data.
We've put together a handy guide to provide you with some of the more basic concepts of an API and we'll share the reasons as to why it's an important tool for your station and Instead of directly sharing data from the application's source, an API is used as a safe go-between.
Greene's voice became familiar to NPR listeners from his four years covering the White House. Bush's second term, Greene spent hours in NPR's spacious booth in the basement of the West Wing (it's about the size of your average broom closet).
He also spent time trekking across five continents, reporting on White House visits to places like Iraq, Afghanistan, Mongolia, Rwanda, Uruguay – and, of course, Crawford, Texas.
A station should request an API key by contacting Digital Services (if they don’t have one already).
It’s the API which stations can retrieve (or pull) content from and ingest (or push) their content into. The NPR Story API holds stories, photos, audio and other data associated with and member station content.Sites like Google Maps allow the public to use their collection of map information using an API and Twitter distributes user and tweet data via their Twitter API.A major goal for Twitter and Google is to give people access to this data so that they can then integrate and present it using custom applications. Distributing NPR content (a.k.a NPR data) throughout a vast network of stations, websites and apps is one of NPR’s most important duties. Instead of allowing people directly into NPR databases, an API provides us with a controlled point of access from which we can release data.
