Art Institute of Chicago API, Nikhil Trivedi & Illya Moskvin
In the year leading up to the Art Institute of Chicago’s 2018 website redesign, a team of internal developers created a central repository for all of our public data—collections as well as digital catalogs, in-gallery experiences, events, shop products and more. Utilizing a microservices architecture, our data hub fuels a rich experience on our website, mobile apps, and more, and eases system integration by providing a single, searchable, unified API.
While the public API itself is not written in 4D, our application CITI that is 4D serves all of the data about the Art Institute’s collection to the data hub through its own REST API. One might say that is… the lion’s share of the content. 😎
In this demo, we will take a look at how easy and fun it is to explore data from our collection in your own 4D applications. Use 4D’s new language and interface capabilities in combination with HTTP Client commands to make our collection data your own!
