Announcing JSON {BIN} IT! service to store your JSON files

astagi profile image Andrea Stagi ・1 min read

Since one of our favourite services to store JSON files went down (myjson.com), me and my pal @mino89 decided to write a new one by our own: that's how JSON {BIN} IT! was born 🦄

This service is ideal for hobbies projects, MVP and any other situation where you don't want to create a data storage. Using JSON {BIN} IT! is really straightforward, you can create a new JSON directly from the website or sending a POST request to the API endpoint

https://api.jsonbin.it/bins/

including the JSON you want to store in the body of the request.

{ "value" : 2000 }
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

The response will be something like

{ "bin" : "l088fgWQ" }
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

where bin is the id of your JSON that you can retrive sending a GET request to another API endpoint,

https://api.jsonbin.it/bins/:binid

{ "value" : 2000 }
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

The service is still in beta version, is open source (https://github.com/jsonbinit) and there are some good first issues in the repositories, any contribution or suggestion would be appreciated!
