Obelisk as a platform is still continuously being worked on. While new versions are being deployed and evaluated, we also try to provide a stable base for users that need to rely on Obelisk for long running projects or demos.
Obelisk API Versions¶
Currently there are two API versions being hosted on the platform:
|API Version||Base URI||Status||Recommended for new users / apps|
In addition to its native APIs, Obelisk also offers a number of other interfaces:
|Interface ID||Runs On||Status||Usage notes|
|Obelisk GraphQL||API v2||Stable||Recommended: provides a nice high-level alternative to the REST API, all feedback is welcome!|
|Obelisk NGSI-TSDB||API v2||Demo Prototype||Only use if NGSI compliancy is a must! The native Obelisk APIs (or GraphQL) will provide better performance!|
All APIs and dependant services are backed by the same underlying Obelisk Core for which we are applying bug fixes and performance optimizations all the time. Note that these should be transparent to the user!
An overview of high level changes for each (API) version can be found by browsing the release notes on the left.
