Simple API for Front Accounting
I needed some basic integration functions to another software and decided to create this REST API and contribute to the Front Accounting community. I hope you find it usefull!
DO NOT use git to clone this repo into your FrontAccounting modules folder unless you are a developer.
DO download the latest release in either zip or tgz and unpack into a folder such as .../modules/api.
API Quick Start
- Just copy the files into the modules directory under a folder called "api".
- OPTIONAL: To test your installation Edit the file util.php and change the $company, $username and $password variables so you can test. Use it at your own risk, to provide login from another software you need to send X-COMPANY, X-USER and X-PASSWORD headers in the request and the API will use those credentials, if they're wrong you will get a nice message saying "Bad Login"
- Try to access the API, for example, try the Items Category List, type this on your explorer: http://YOUR_FA_URL/modules/api/category/ You will see a JSON response with all your items categories, if not check your credentials in the util.php file, or the X headers if set in the client.
See the API Documentation for descriptions of each endpoint.
The following API endpoints have been implemented:
- Items / Inventory
- Items Categories
- Inventory Movements
- Tax Groups
- Tax Types
- Bank Accounts
- GL Accounts
- GL Account Types.
Some of them have not been tested yet so be carefull.
