Using React has been fun, but also very challenging. Over the weekend, I struggled to figure out how to use Dribbble’s API (v2) to feed my shots into my personal site. Here’s the directions to get you started.
I’ve been using Next.js, a React framework created by the wonderful folks at @zeithq, for over a year and if you’re looking to get started with React, it’s the best.
You need to register an application with Dribbble to be able access content via the API, this process hasn’t changed with the update to v2.
You will be redirected to a screen that shows your successfully registered app details, note the Client ID and Client Secret numbers at the bottom of the page.
Using Postman was the easiest way I found to do this, so download and install that first.
