Create an arbitrary number of uuids:
To programmatically recieve a UUID, send a request to http://uuid.xyzio.com/json.
The response will contain a json object formatted like this:
response = requests.get('http://uuid.xyzio.com/json')
if response.status_code == 200:
jsonObject = response.json()
UUID stands for Universally Unique IDentifier. It is a unique 128-bit number that is extermely unlikely to be similar to another UUID.
GUID stands for Globally Unique IDentifier. It is Microsoft's implementation of the UUID standard.
There is no difference between a GUID and a UUID. They are both 16-byte highly unique values that can be used interchangeably.
The API and website is written in Python using the django framework. The UUID is generated using Python's UUID module and returned using the Django JsonResponse module.
