The Real Estate Standards Organization (RESO) has released a free web API tool for real estate software developers, including the source code for open source client software, the company recently announced.
“This marks the first in-house development by RESO of desktop client applications written with reusable code libraries that will help expedite the adoption, deployment and utilization of the real estate data in real-time,” says Jeremy Crawford, CEO of RESO, noting that in the past, outside technology firms developed client software for accessing real estate data through RESO Standards.
“We’ve responded by providing what many RESO members have told us they need in order to develop and deploy real estate software that is dependent on real-time property data,” Crawford says.
The RESO Web API Reference Client is a desktop application written with reusable code libraries using .NET C# that allows rapid development of API client applications connecting to data sources leveraging RESO Standards. There are multiple packages available, each including the full source code and the stand alone Reference Client that implements the code libraries. The tool is designed to save a developer from dealing with the RESO Web API Specification and underlying OData, OAuth2 and OpenID Connect protocol details.
“We invite community feedback, as well as developer participation, in our GitHub repository, as this will help us consider future revisions and enhancements to client software to support our evolving RESO Web API Specifications and the needs of the development community in the industry,” says Crawford.
