Who uses n:point?


n:point's Features

  • Schema validation - Add JSON Schema to enforce the structure of your data
  • Schema and data locking - Once you're confident that your schema or data won't change, lock them down so your app will never break
  • Flexible syntax - Forget the quotes! You can use javascript object syntax ({ a: 1 } instead of { "a": 1 })
  • Sub-property access - If you just need a piece of your JSON data, you can add property keys or array indexes to your API URL (Example: api.npoint.io/features/0/description)
  • Protected editing - Once you're logged in, all JSON bins you create are associated with your account so only you can edit the data
  • CORS support - Sets the header Access-Control-Allow-Origin: * in API responses, so you can access the API from anywhere
