The Pair Columbus API is a public, read-only resource for information related to the group and its resources. For now, it just serves static JSON used to generate the Challenges page.

Challenges

This endpoint returns all active Pair Columbus challenges in categories (generally based on difficulty or technologies used).

Request

Response

200 (application/json)

Returns an array of Categories.

Category

category
The name of the category.
description
One or more sentences describing the intention of the challenges in the category. Note that some descriptions contain Markdown content, so you may need to render them with a Markdown parser first.
challenges
A list of strings of challenge names. Each challenge is named exactly after the name of its repository in the Pair Columbus GitHub Organization. To get the URL of a challenge’s repository, prepend https://github.com/paircolumbus/ to its name.
