I've developed a npm package last week and I was thinking that some of you are not NodeJS developer. My aim is connect all devs or webmasters to the Steem blockchain so I was thinking that an API Rest would be good alternative for PHP / Ruby / Android / iOS etc... developers.

How it look

https://api.steemjs.com/getState?path=/trending/funny
https://api.steemjs.com/getConfig
https://api.steemjs.com/getAccounts?names[]=fabien

You also can use scope, here an example:
https://api.steemjs.com/getState?path=/trending/funny&scope=content

The API following the same methods as my npm package "steem" wich is also same methods as the blockchain Steem. You can find all the documentation with available method here: https://github.com/adcpm/steem/tree/master/doc

Get Involved

All my works is Open Source (https://github.com/adcpm/steem-api) so feel free to contribute. I gonna make few tutorials once i'm less busy but i encourage you to create tutorials for helping others dev getting started to play with the blockchain.

Share your love if you like it and let me know if you have some suggestions. I'm on Steem Slack my username is @adcpm.

Best,

Fabien

Yes! I plan to do a tutorial to getting started with NodeJS from 0. I'm native PHP developer and the change was amazing for me it should make the same effect for you.

Now the real STEEM market can start growing HARDDDD ! :)
I predict tons of new Steem Tools in next few months and Steemit will grow in an unexpected way because many people were waiting for this API to start building things ! That will be giant.

If you plan to build you own Tool and contribute to the community i suggest this quick step-by-step Guide,

You can use this steem api as to produce any needed tool for Steem ! LONG LIVE TO STEEM !

Firstly, great API! :D

Can I upvote using the REST API? if yes, how so?

Also, is there a way to get the list of posts by a given author? I did go through the documentation but could not find it.

Do you know how I can find out what the parameters for the different functions accept as input values? In your examples above, I can see what they expect for 'path' and 'names'. I see a lot of other parameters in other functions though, and I don't know what to pass in to use these. One example is in the getDiscussionsByVotes method. What should I pass in for 'query' in order to get it to return data?
