How to create API for people to access my data


I use Parabola to consume API’s and for automation. If I wanted to create an API for others to get data from my database, how could I do that with Parabola?

Hey John!

Parabola is not well suited at the moment to be an API. Its certainly something that we have talked about for a while, but it would require a decent amount of refactoring our infrastructure to accomplish.

The biggest issue is speed, as APIs need to be fairly quick responding to requests, and Parabola, while fast on a human scale, is not fast when compared to a well built API.

Your best option now is to export your data from Parabola into something like a database, which can be queried by another system.
