Microsoft today updated its Windows App studio tool with new exciting new features. Windows App Studio lets you make simple Windows 10 apps even without knowledge of coding. Among the new features, the most interesting one is support of REST API data source.
In blog post Microsoft says
Much like the current RSS Data Source, this feature is open ended, meaning you can connect it to almost any open REST API service available on the internet. REST APIs are the backbone of how data gets passed around the web. If these are new concepts to you, an easy way to think about it is that APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) let different pieces of software talk to one another and REST (Representational State Transfer) is an architecturally structured way of “packaging” those data communications.
Along with this, company has also added some new features to the Hosted web apps which made by using Windows App studio.
Today’s release expands on the feature and lets you declare capabilities of your app, letting you can take advantage of the Windows 10 OS features with your server-side code so your web app can act like a native Windows UWP. You can now enable things like Live Tiles, Notifications, Cortana, and a lot more.
