SWAPI API

The Star Wars API, or "swapi" (Swah-pee) is the world's first quantified and programmatically-accessible data source for all the data from the Star Wars canon universe!

View SWAPI API docs

Use the SWAPI Connector

Add the swapi connector on your Zenaton dashboard,
enter the credentials and authorize Zenaton to call the swapi API from your workflows.
Then add code snippet and URL path to your workflow.

const { workflow } = require("zenaton");

module.exports = workflow("MyWorkflow", function* () {
const swapi = this.connector(
'swapi', 'your-connector-id-from-zenaton-dashboard');

const response = yield swapi.get('path_to_API');
yield swapi.post('path_to_API', {param1: '...'});
});

The Zenaton Engine

We handle the complexity of orchestrating SWAPI API calls and related logic in your code.

Out of the Box API Call

Add the connector to your Zenaton workflow and we manage the authentication, oauth1 and oauth2 flow including token refreshing.

Automatic Retries & Alerting

If your SWAPI API call fails, it can automatically be retried and you will receive an alert with error details.

Monitoring and Troubleshooting

View the Zenaton dashboard for execution history, scheduled tasks, errors and logs or retry failed SWAPI API calls.

Integrate SWAPI into your application logic

The Zenaton connector is a pre-configured task for calling the SWAPI API inside your workflow with one line of code. Build custom integration logic by adding a workflow directly into your application using the functions in the Zenaton SDK.

// The Zenaton engine orchestrates swapi API calls and related logic via the Zenaton agent. Every step is executed at the right moment on your servers and monitored on Zenaton dashboard.
const { workflow } = require("zenaton");
// swapi authentification on Zenaton
module.exports = workflow("ParallelWorkflow", function* () {
  const swapi = this.connector(
    'swapi',
    'your-connector-id-from-zenaton-dashboard'
  );
// execute parallel tasks handled automatically by the Zenaton engine 
  const [a, b] = yield this.run.task(["TaskA"],["TaskB"]);
  if (a > b) {
    const response = yield swapi.get('path_to_API');
  } else {
    yield this.run.task('TaskD');
  }
});

const { workflow } = require("zenaton");
// swapi authentification on Zenaton
module.exports = workflow("AsynchronousWorkflow", function* () {
  const swapi = this.connector(
    'swapi',
    'your-connector-id-from-zenaton-dashboard'
  );
  this.run.task('TaskA');
  this.swapi.post('path_to_API');
  yield run.task('TaskB');
  yield this.run.task('TaskD');
});
// Tasks can be automatically (or manually) retried and executions are displayed in real-time on the Zenaton dashboard.
const { workflow, duration } = require("zenaton");

// swapi authentification on Zenaton
module.exports = workflow("WaitWorkflow", function* () {
  const swapi = this.connector(
    'swapi',
    'your-connector-id-from-zenaton-dashboard'
  );

  yield this.run.task('TaskA');

// The 'wait function is managed by the Zenaton engine and will be executed on your worker at the right time.
  yield this.wait.for(duration.days(7));

  );
    // Wait for up to 24 hours for the event using the Zenaton Wait Function.
    const event = yield this.wait.event("MyEvent").for(duration.hours(24));
    if (event) {
      // If event has been triggered within 24 hours
      yield this.run.task('TaskA');
    } else {
      // else calls swapi API
      yield swapi.get('path_to_API');
