API Response


An API Response is the data or information that is returned from a server when an API (Application Programming Interface) request is sent. It is typically in the form of a JSON or XML document and contains either a status (“ok”, “error”, etc.) or data (e.g. a list of items).

Decoding API Responses

An API Response is the digital handshake between a client and a server. It encapsulates the information returned from the server following an API request, providing crucial insights or data payloads. Typically formatted in JSON or XML, these responses carry status indicators (such as "ok" or "error") or payload data, tailored to fulfill the client's query.
