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 the 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.
