API

Hello! Quick question, does someone know if there are any APIs that convert from metric to imperial? I have something to do in JS for a website and I HAVE to do it with API calls.


My PC (Acer Aspire 5):

i5-8250U 4C/8T *Currently running at -0.090V*

2 x 4 GB DDR4 2400MHz;

Nvidia GeForce MX150 2GB DDR5;

128 GB M.2 SSD;

1 TB Hard Drive;

17,3" 1600x900 Display

Does is specifically say "http API" or just "API" because of its the later creating any sort module or class would class as an API.

 

Could even use an existing one such as

Just fyi it was the very first google result of "metric to imperial coversion API" ;)

I checked that before posting, am I blind or there's no conversion for metric-imperial units on there?

I would assume so. It says "Convert most known measurement types: imperial, metric, mass, length, temperature, time (and more)."

 

Might have to just dig through the api documentation more (which is really good practice and probably why this is a requirement, if this is an assignment)

Imperial is now purely based on the metric system. That means there exists constants that will be valid "forever". Depending on your use, implementing the conversion yourself might be faster than trying to use some API. Especially when it's really straightforward like now.

Im with @DevBlox on this one. Metric to imperial unit conversions are trivial. 

 

E.g. Kg 《 Lbs × 2.205

Mi 《 Km  x 1.609

 

They're extremely simple math functions that realistically would take probably about 30s to define a function declaration and definition that conforms to whatever programming styles or standards you're using in any langauge.

 

Cant use code blocks because of mobile but here some c style code that you should get the bigger picture and be able to implement in any langauge.

 

float ReturnUnit UnitToUnit(float InputUnit)

{

return InputUnit * Conversion;

}

 

You could build your own API in under 10 minutes for just about every relevant conversion between systems.

Since it's such a specific requirement (conversion and it HAS to be done through consuming an api), i'm guessing its some kind of homework assignment. I just want to throw this out there, since i also think doing a Rest API call for something this trivial would not be a good actual solution.

I know it's easy to write these functions but I have to do it through API and I don't know how to create my own API or whatever.

Anyways, I implemented something else and I think that'll be enough. Thanks for help! :)
