There are 2 main types of Web APIs we will discuss in this course. The first has to do with device capabilities.
We call these device APIs because they define a safe way for a programmer to access device hardware through the browser.
This is analogous to the way an operating system will abstract the hardware of a computer so a programmer does not need to know the underlying details of how the hardware works.
Probably the most comprehensive up to date documentation.
Not all of these are available so be sure to check compatibility with Chrome!
Useful tutorials that mostly cover new and emerging web technologies.
A great resource for checking which browser supports what.
Wherever possible, try to find libraries or snippets of code that will abstract the API and make it easier for you to create.
A perfect example of this is Three.js or Pixi.js for WebGL.
Compare writing WebGL to Three.js code:
Here's a great library that wraps up the Indexed DB APISklad
