To get started using Vanilla API, either:
- Download the latest release
- Clone the repository directly into your Vanilla
$ git clone https://github.com/kasperisager/vanilla-api.git api
When you've done this, make sure the newly created folder is named
api and not
vanilla-api. Now simply go to your dashboard, enable Vanilla API in the "Applications" menu and you're all set!
How does it work?
Vanilla API is a shim that implements a RESTful URI scheme upon with you can invoke different methods using the standard GET, POST, PUT and DELETE HTTP verbs. The API then translates and redirects your request to the corresponding application controller which in return caries out the requested method.
You can find documentation on how to use, configure and extend Vanilla API in the Wiki.
