API Usages

What is an API?

To give you a quick rundown, an API is an Application Programming Interface. It is a software interface that offers a service to other pieces of software.

If you didn't understand that, then just think of it as a connection to a website/server that gives the program certain information.

What APIs does Impulse use?

Impulse uses three APIs:

  1. Google Speech Recognition API - As you might guess, this is used to turn your speech into text for the program to understand.

  2. Google Calendar API - Uses Google OAuth2/Authentication library to link to your Google account and get events from your Google Calendar

  3. Jokes API - Used for getting random jokes for the joke command.
