Ways to integrate

There are a couple ways to integrate this API, here are a few to get you started:

Do it yourself

To view the API's Swagger specification in JSON format, go to API specification and click the View specification link in the related resources section to the right of the page.

Use Swagger Codegen to quickly generate client integration code in the language you are using, such as C#, Java, Perl, PHP, Python or Ruby.

Swagger Codegen is available to download on GitHub, along with a README.

The tool is also available as a web-based version.

As an alternative to Codegen, you can use the Swagger Editor to generate client integration code: upload the Swagger specification and select your programming language of choice from the Generate Client dropdown.

The online JavaScript compressor will definitely help you optimize your scripts for faster page loading.
