What is this?

This is the place to go for documentation, examples and support/feedback for GleSYS API.

You should start out by reading the introduction.

Where can I find documentation?

The documentation can be found right here on github in our wiki. It comes in the form of an introduction and a full documentation of all functions available in GleSYS API. This documentation has been automatically generated from the API.

Where can I find examples?
