First of all, my most sincere condolences to those who lost someone in this tragedy!
And for those who got infected I wish them a full recovery soon!
covid19-webservice is a simple Python webservice to provide the latest statistics about Coronavirus COVID-19 in JSON format.
The idea of writing this piece of software came to me after returning from my vacation in Slovenia, as one of my friends asked me about the Coronavirus situation there, but I really had no idea! (When I came back it was 0 infected, now sadly is 16!)
So I’ve done some readings on the matter and I was quite surprised by the numbers around the world, and decided to start working on my covid19-webservice!
This webservice is useful for:
- Developing monitoring/alerting apps about the virus outbreak.
- Developing maps about the virus outbreak.
- Writing command line tools about the virus outbreak (Only Linux/Unix people will relate to that one!)
Enough talking and let’s have a look on how it works!
At the moment of writing this article, I have the following endpoints:
Here’s the output of calling /get/statistics/all:
I’ve used the following technologies to get that PoC ready:
- Flask (Web framework)
- Pandas (Data Analysis Library)
- gevent.pywsgi (WSGI server)
If you are not really into the software development and looking for something that is just ready to use with a nice interface, I highly recommend this one for you!
Stay safe and take care!
Don’t forget to star it on Github if you liked it 😉
