App Developers Take Note
Along with many government websites, government-run application programming interfaces (APIs) are also shutdown. Most of the effect will be felt by those looking to connect with data statistics, such as those from the Census API or Data.gov. Certain apps such as Weather.gov are still functioning because they are seen as essential to the well-being of the country. As with other areas of the shutdown, there is no clear indication that there is a way to inform developers that their access to government APIs is available once the shutdown has been resolved.
