This is wildly subject to change. :3


  • base — The beginning part of the URL, that is unchanged for all API calls. For instance, Tumblr API calls start with This property can be a string, or an array of [regexString, base] to match against the URL. Dropbox uses the host, except for file content, which uses The value of base for Dropbox is [["^/(files(_put)?|thumbnails)/.*", ""], ""].
  • suffix — Suffix for the API call. e.g. "suffix": ".json"
  • params — A string map of default query parameters to use. Version 3 of the Google Docs API has a required v=3 parameter, and so has a params value of {"v": "3"}.
  • configParams — A string map of default query parameters to use from the API configuration. Usually APIs are defined with a key and a secret parameter, but this

  • format — A hash map of formats that the API can return, out of xml or json. Each format is a map of properties to combine with the top-level object, e.g. {"xml": {"params": {"format": "xml"}}}

  • uploadFormat — Format that uploads should be submitted as. One of json or form.

  • auth — Object describing the authentication type of this API. The "type" parameter specifies the auth type. All other options are auth-specific.

  • "oobVerifier" — Boolean. If out-of-band authentication requires a verification code. Dropbox doesn't, Twitter does, etc.
  • "oobCallback" — String. Value to be used in place of a callback URL when doing out-of-band authentication. This value is "oob" for some services, or omitted in other services.
