Everyone NEEDS to use this API!!
Before this blog post I would like to say 2022 was a great year, but now it is time to move on to 2023 so I wish you all a Happy New Year and hope you achieve your goals this year. Me personally wish to get into the nitty gritty of machine learning and make some income off of my programming ventures as I couldn’t get much success during these 3 years.
With that out of the way I can say my new years eve challenge is over as I built this meme api before the clock struck 12AM. I am right now eating cake at 12:18AM writing this post and am thrilled to say that this api is done. Learned about a new hosting provider which is great alternative to heroku as heroku removed the free tier which was quite sad to see. render.com is phenomenal as it takes very little effort to get an api running.
The API is quite simple and I will be using it for my personal projects aswell since it is something i’ve always wanted but never found. The API gets the current most popular memes from some of my favorite subreddits and will be pretty useful for my fun challenges like this one.
Here is the API: https://rapidapi.com/scupdev/api/memeco
The name was inspired by some of the new company domains which have switched from .com to .co which looks quite aesthetic in my opinion.
