Getting Started

Thank you for choosing {crud:api}, let's get you up and running as quickly as possible.

1. Sign up for a free account #

Click the "Sign up" button (top right), go on, it's just up there. You will require a Google account to use {crud:api}.

Note: each free account allows you to have a total of 500 database objects. Deleted items do not count towards your total. If you would like more, just contact us.

2. Create an API key #

{crud:api} uses token/bearer authentication. So we need to create a token: open the API Keys web app page and click "Create new key". This will generate a unique token for your account. You will see the full token in a dialog box. This is the only time you will see it, so copy it and keep it safe.

Note: you can create as many API keys as you wish. In this way you can grant/revoke access for specific devices or systems.

3. Send your first request #

Send a GET request to the {crud:api} API. In this example we're just probing the service.

curl -X GET -H "Content-Type: application/json" -H "Authorization: Bearer YOUR_API_KEY"
