As cloud computing market continues to skyrocket, more and more IT companies tend to release cloud APIs for developers. Most cloud APIs are exposed via REST (Representational state transfer) Web service. In this post, I will illustrate how to create a barcode reader with Node REST Framework Restify and Dynamsoft Barcode Reader SDK.
When writing code in IDEs (Visual Studio, Eclipse, Netbeans, aptana etc.), developers need to quickly find useful APIs and relevant documentations. The assist function (e.g. IntelliSense) is usually triggered by the shortcut keys ctrl + space. See the screenshots of Microsoft Visual Studio and Netbeans.
