API Docs

Welcome to the repository for Algorithmia's API. Here you will find the API reference, as well as some documentation on getting started with the API and basic set up.

These docs are built on Slate. Learn more over at the official repo.

Running locally


You're going to need:

  • Linux or OS X — Windows may work, but is unsupported.
  • Ruby, version 1.9.3 or newer
  • Bundler — If Ruby is already installed, but the bundle command doesn't work, just run gem install bundler in a terminal.

Getting Set Up

  1. Fork this repository on Github.
  2. Clone your forked repository with git clone
  3. cd api-docs
  4. Install all dependencies: bundle install. If you are having trouble with some of the gems, try running bundle update, then run bundle install again.
  5. Start the test server: bundle exec middleman server

You can now see the docs at http://localhost:4567. Whoa! That was fast!

If you are making any changes to the stylesheets or javascript, run rake build to re-build the project so you can see your changes.

How to add new files

To add a new file and have it included in the navigation, be sure to add it to the includes: field of the front-matter in index.rb. Note that while the files are prefaced with an underscore, here in the front-matter, the underscore is unnecessary. You also do not need to include the file extension.

  - introduction
  - authentication
  - apispecification
  - data
  - dataapispecification
  - clients/cli

Language Tabs

Adding a new language to the docs is easy! To get a new language tab, simply add the language to the front-matter in index.rb.

  - shell: cURL
  - cli: CLI
  - python
  - java
  - scala
  - javascript
  - nodejs

Need to add a custom lexer? Add it in custom_lexers.rb.

If you add a new language, be sure to add code samples for each snippet that appears in other languages! The docs are only complete when there is language parity.
