Course Content

A general overview of the course as a whole.

What is this course about?

In this course, we’ll learn how to use TheMealDB API and TheCocktailDB APIs. These APIs provide us with the recipes for different meals and cocktails. We can either search for a specific meal or cocktail or request a random one.

To get the most out of this course, you should be familiar with the following:

  • The concept of APIs.
  • The most basic HTTP request, GET.
  • The basics of the Python language since we will be using python to test the endpoints.

We’ll follow the given roadmap given below:

  • We’ll start by learning a bit about TheCocktailDB API, TheMealDB API, and the authentication method used for these APIs.
  • Then, we’ll explore TheCocktailDB API by learning about some of its endpoints, and its request and response structure.
  • After learning about TheCocktailDB API, we will move towards TheMealDB API. We will look at its request and response structure, and some endpoints this API provides.
  • We will finish by using these APIs in a demo app so you get a better idea of how to use them.
