@sorinr What about when you run into a CORS issue as a beginner? Do you need to sift through pages and pages of forums to find that sometimes using JSONP works but sometimes it doesn't and sometimes you need to include CrossDomain:true; in your ajax object and sometimes you don't, and sometimes neither works? It's not constructive as a beginner to run into these issues when the challenge is supposed to be testing your knowledge of API calls, not cross-origin headers and security...

@callumquick the early u learn about issues u may encounter the better is for you as a future developer

@alpox
@callumquick there are 2 points to take into account: using JSONP, and if this doesnt work out, use crossorigin.me
but youre right, its no fun to run into these issues
Callum Ward
@callumquick
@alpox What is crossorigin.me, I haven't seen that one? Could you explain, it might help me fix some of the buggy API calls I've made on codepen
alpox
@alpox
But as programmer you will always have to deal with such problems
Callum Ward
@callumquick
It is true that we will have to deal with them, but the help online is actually quite vague because the issue is often different
alpox
@alpox
@callumquick you just put that url (with https://crossorigin.me/) in front of the real url you want to access and in almost all cases it will work

@callumquick Thank you! That is very helpful. Can I ask how you know that/where did you find that? I had no problem using the API for the weather app that we made, but this one is confusing.

@RobertPurcea
is there any way to style numbers?
Callum Ward
@callumquick
@nevaIsDreaming Surprisingly I had a lot of issues with the weather API, it works on my laptop but not my desktop, very weird! I found that just by trial and error, but there is a wikimedia page about opensearch and how to use it, you just need to know that it is the one that does the "search" functionality... I had to look through wikipedias docs for a while to find that
@nevaIsDreaming Essentially there is a lot of stuff you don't need in the docs! But also note that it is helpful to the wiki api to include a "format=json" parameter as well

Help pls, this throws an 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' error even though there is a callback used
function clickThis() {

  var searchText = document.getElementById("searchText").value;
  var encSearchText = encodeURI(searchText);
  var apiLink = "http://en.wikipedia.org/w/api.php?action=opensearch&search=" + encSearchText + "&limit=10&namespace=0&format=json&callback=?";


 $.get(apiLink, function(data) {
      console.log(data);
 });


  // construct output
  // display output


 }

@mmarieg7
i am about to build a tribute page and am confused as to what user stories is and what i am supposed to be writing... can someone help me please
Łukasz Sobek
@lukaszsobek
@mmarieg7 user stories tell you what the person using the page expects to experience
@mmarieg7 they are guidelines to how your code should work from the perspective of a user of the application
Callum Ward
@callumquick
@lukaszsobek As suggested earlier try appending https://crossorigin.me/ to the front of your apiLink and see if that works otherwise get back to me
@remdata Please link your codepen/send your code
@remdata Actually your issue might be that src needs to point to the actual image, not to a page where the image is displayed
@remdata Try src="https://thumbs.dreamstime.com/x/las-vegas-nv-dec-closeup-profile-dr-ben-carson-retired-neurosurgeon-republican-presidential-candidate-s-speaks-spin-66214063.jpg" instead

@remdata you are missing a quote after the src=. Should be src="

guys, I don't get why it's not working...

@callumquick
Geolocation by navigator doesn't work on codepen atm because it's not secure
@saylos Also as a side note your longitude and latitude are the wrong way round in their definitions :smile:
@saylos Try http://ip-api.com/json to get the geolocation information
Łukasz Sobek
@lukaszsobek
lol, "api.openweathermap.org refused to connect."
there are a lot of options

@callumquick ahahahah I saw it just now. though I don't get why in the challenge description they don't tell about the navigator-codepen issue

@callumquick
@saylos The API challenges are now quite a bit harder because of things that have changed with the way the recommended APIs work, and increased browser security measures, but I suppose FCC wants you to exercise your Read-Search-Ask mentality
