The best Travel APIs (discover & contribute)


APIs and data feeds are the lifeblood of the travel industry. They power everything from selling flight tickets to beautiful map-based travel guides.

Think about it. It’s amazing that entrepreneurs can make use of all the existing infrastructure and data to build exciting new things on top of it. Want to build an recommendation engine for worldwide spontaneous trips, combining flight ticket prices and weather data? Not a problem.
This is why we want to start a collection of great travel APIs to work with. The following list is certainly missing a ton of interesting services, so please drop us a line, if you know of other exciting APIs. The only two requirements are that the API is related to the realm of travel and somewhat universal (public transportation data for an individual city is great but not for this list).

Building a Game using JavaScript : Part-1

Introduction I really wanted to write a tutorial about a game technology I like to use, so here it is. In this story, we will start making a little shoot’em up game with PixiJS, a really simple and cool Javascript library. What we are going to do exactly is to make a spaceship able to move and shoot, enemy waves coming through and a beautiful animated background with moving clouds. The first part (this story) will focus on the background. Ready guys? Let’s nail it! Getting started Let’s start by setting up our project: I uploaded a code structure already set so we are all working with the same base. However if you want to make it yourself, I put a picture of my folder just below: Click here to download the starter project Project folder structure We will need a local server to run the game: I invite you to download WAMP if you’re working with Windows, or MAMP for macOS, they are free and easy to use. Let’s put your game folder in the server one (htdocs for MAMP / www for WAM…
