Urban dictionary is a useful website that allows users to search for and contribute to definitions. So I wanted to create an API that does the same.

What it does

Urban Dictionary API allows you to search for definitions of words, "definitions" include not only literal definitions but also descriptions. As such, "to define" a word or phrase on Urban Dictionary does not necessarily entail providing a strict definition; merely a description of some aspect of the word or phrase could suffice for inclusion in the dictionary.

How I built it

I used Postman Canary and both and to build the API.

Challenges I ran into

While making a GET request to, I was facing some issues regarding the URL. So I ran it on my terminal using CURL and fixed it.

Accomplishments I am proud of

Since I was a complete beginner to Postman, I am proud that now I know how to use it properly.

What I learned

Postman, making GET requests and creating a workspace
