The official Fifa website has a poor mobile user experience. I will tweak their design to render well on all devices.
There is a free REST API by the people at Software for Good. It scrapes data from the Fifa website, the data available is predominantly for matches, I will blend it with my API to provide a more complete dataset.🍹
You can try it!
It is hosted on heroku using a free account, so the website sleeps after 30 minutes of inactivity , it will take 2 minutes for the website to appear for you!
I wanted to try Spring Data Rest, which is an opinionated library that minimises code needed to make REST endpoints. It is only necessary to define domain classes with accompanying simple repository classes. I wanted to discover what the benefits and constraints are, and see if you would use this for an production application.
