Pick a website, I'll use Facebook as an example, then go to a search engine and search for "API Facebook Documentation".

Then study the API and play with it in your code editor.

Are you looking to learn about building APIs (programming) ? or selling APIs? No-code APIs? or everything!

I have a full course coming soon. But for now, you can start with the following:

know some coding
mean you've practiced it or just read about it? If you've practiced it do you have examples of your coding to get an understanding of what you know?

@ssadvisor Yeah I have this example

from fastapi import FastAPI, UploadFile, File
import pytesseract
from PIL import Image
import io

pytesseract.pytesseract.tesseract_cmd = r'E:\\Program Files\\Tesseract-OCR\\tesseract.exe'

app = FastAPI()

@app.post("/image-to-text")
async def image_to_text(image: UploadFile = File(...)):
    image_data = await image.read()
    image = Image.open(io.BytesIO(image_data))

    text = pytesseract.image_to_string(image)
    return {"text": text}

@abdirahman I see you are using an OCR external executable to do this. where are you stuck, what is the problem?

@admin the problem is the API can't produce a good result at any time, I mean when I try to change some images it is not working.

@abdirahman in which languages?

if the problem is in the API itself, then I dont think you can doo much, it is better to think about another approach. I didn't test this API before.

What is the JSON result you get when you call the API? Also, how are you specifying the file to open?

I made Instagram downloader API and I used instaloader library then I deployed render and when I try to test I got this error:

{
  "error": "JSON Query to graphql/query: HTTP error code 401."
}
download (29)

 this is the how i wrote the code

from fastapi import FastAPI
import instaloader

app = FastAPI()

L = instaloader.Instaloader()
@app.get("/posts-reels-stories-igtv")
async def download_post(link: str = "https://www.instagram.com/p/Cs3leViPf63/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link&igshid=MzRlODBiNWFlZA"):
    try:
        post = instaloader.Post.from_shortcode(L.context, link.split("/")[-2])
        L.download_post(post, target="./download")
        return {"message": "Post downloaded successfully!"}
    except Exception as e:
        return {"error": str(e)}

@abdirahman did you try running the code without using  fast api, just a simple script?

@admin I tried with fastAPI and it is working well but when I deploy it to render hosting it is not working.

401 code is related to authorization, do you have any authorizations options on the hosting server?
