List of group members

Summary of requirements

The DHIS2 RESTful API resources can be very overwhelming, and we decided to make an application to simplify this task, a Web API HTML-view browser.

We will make an attractive and user-friendly application for this project.

The API will be listed in a table with the parameters, also there will be a JSON view of the API as well.

There will be a option where you can get which parmeters to be shown. We call it parameter option.

There we be a snippet code of each API, so other developers can use it for their development.

The API list will be multilevel.

There will be filtering functionality for this app. That will make it easier to find the specific resource that they want.

Also we will provide for each API the documentation that belongs to each API.

The page will be rendering the DHIS2 RESTful API resources in form of AJAX, which mean it will only refresh that part and not the whole page.

Time schedule

The application will mostly be programmed in html, css and JS.

The group decided to use bootstrap for more attractive look.

This application will basically be consist of three pages.

  1. Index page (homepage) with a welcome message and rendering the API resources
  2. A feedback page where the user of this app can give us feedback and improve the app.
  3. A simple about us page where you can dinf information about us.

This is the architecture of this application.
