The Star Wars API

The Star Wars API

Paul Hallett developed a web api called SWAPI which consists of the data from the universe of Star Wars.

You can find all the planets, spaceships, vehicles, characters from the six original movies. This is a nice dataset to practice coding or for an assessment. I wrote an api client SharpTrooper with C# to support this project in 2015. You know Storm Troopers are famous with their lack of targeting skills.

Thanks to Paul, he shared my library in the documents. A few developers from Github and Microsoft starred the repository. I forgot about it until Matt Fricker sent me a pull-request with some updates. Apparently, the service was moved from swapi.co to swapi.dev.
