I used this opportunity to do a mini-walkthrough on how to download and use Postman to access an API (like the Hexbot one). 

I hope this content is useful for a totally brand-spanking-new beginner to have a little fun with it:



Here is my repo, I’m a noob to API so I probably done it in the most ineffective way possible: https://github.com/BlankFaces/hexbot

So far only two functions:

Saves the hex to a 100 x 100 image to a directory

Gets 10,000 hex values, sorts them and saves the results, looks really good when a nice seed is added to the request

I’m planning on adding other stuff but not sure fully what to do


The description of Noops is misleading. I already found 2 Noops which are not APIs (Golfbot and Cambot):

They’re each a black box, an API that emits a stream of data we want you to work with.

This, too:

All our Noops have simple APIs for you to play with.
