Todo List CLI in Sync with the Cloud!

Today you will be building a TODO list using API's to sync it with the cloud.

You will practice:

  1. Python lists/arrays
  2. Python Dictionaries
  3. Using the requests package for API communication
  4. HTTP Protocol

We are going to be using BreatheCode Todo's API to upload and download the TODO's, please refer to the HTTP and REST lessons as a quick background research for the project.

  • Get todo's by calling: [GET] /todos/user/<username>
  • Initialize the todo list: [POST] /todos/user/<username>
  • Update your todo list: [PUT] /todos/user/<username>
