Creating and maintaining front end APIs
We are used to thinking of APIs as interfaces between back end and front end, endpoints to fetch or send data from. But pretty much anything that another product or service uses in their code can be an API. This talk is about APIs that sit squarely in the front end, specifically ones used for theming and any type of visual customisation.
A theming API can leverage native web languages directly (allowing us to write HTML and CSS, often with the aid of a templating system) or provide a layer of abstraction over them (e.g. with customisable properties we can attach values to). Or it can use a combination of both. What are the advantages and costs of either approach, both for consumers and maintainers? And how can we choose what’s best for our use case?
