While working on Bytes, I had the idea of making an API that would provide tags would technical concepts.

Introducing TechTags!

TechTags is an open-source project that would provide an API to get all the technical tags you'll need for your project or blogs.

USAGE

Call the following endpoint

https://techtags.vercel.app/api/select

It can take in three query params:

  • tag - string to search by. Example tag=re
  • not - the tags to exclude Example not=react,css
  • limit - No.of results to returns. Default is 5

Sample Query string

https://techtags.vercel.app/api/select?tag=re&not=css,html&limit=3

Future Additions
