Project Details

Regional Covid is a custom API that focuses on providing local or regional COVID-19 data based on data from https://bing.com/covid How The API Works Once the default country is set, Total Global data, Regional OR Local data is scraped from https://bing.com/covid by Puppeteer and then saved to a Redis Database which is an in-memory data structure store, used as a database, cache and message broker. Redis is wicked fast hence the choice of database for this project. When End-users consume the API which has been set to the default country or region by you(API admin), a cached version of the data is served. Any subsequent visit to the API endpoint also result in a cached version of the data served. A Cron Job is scheduled to update the Redis Datastore every hour(you can change the update frequency. check the getting started guide below). Therefore End-users will be served an updated cached version of the data after every hour.
