An API, or application programming interface, is a set of instructions for how one piece of software can communicate with another. In the case of a website, an API can be used to allow third-party applications to interact with the site’s data and functionality. For example, a social media site might offer an API that allows third-party developers to create apps that let users access their account information and post updates directly from the app. APIs can be used to perform basic tasks like retrieving data or posting updates, or more complex tasks like managing user accounts or processing payments. In order to use an API, developers need to have detailed documentation that explains how the API works and what it can be used for.
