Grebe API - Old Page

https://github.com/WhiteHouse/api-standards

Use three simple, common response codes indicating (1) success, (2) failure due to client-side problem, (3) failure due to server-side problem:

200 - OK 400 - Bad Request 500 - Internal Server Error

Grebe blog API description. It's currently used at http://maketoledo.com.

It uses REST and JSON.

Each function below is preceded with /api/v1 in the URI. So for Make Toledo, it would be http://maketoledo.com/api/v1.

Example of activating a new user account:
http://maketoledo.com/api/v1/users/activate/ru8wkn0ol2ql3bm9

At the moment, I don't have SSL enabled for MakeToledo.com, and OAuth is not used.

Users

Except for activating a user account, URIs for GETs and PUTs end with the query string:
/?user_name=[user_name]&user_id=[user_id]&session_id=[session_id]

  • Retrieve profile page info for user name JR.
    GET request.
    /users/JR

  • Create a new user account.
    POST request.
    /users
    Client sends JSON to the API:
    { "user_name" : "userA", "email" : "usera@usera.com" }

  • Activate user account.
    GET request.
    /users/activate/[user_digest]

  • Logout user JR.
    GET request.
    /users/JR/logout

  • Login user.
    Post request.
    /users/login
    Client sends JSON to the API:
    { "email" : "usera@usera.com", "password" : "plaintextpwd" }

  • Retrieve new password for existing account. User would not be logged in. This would be executed for someone who forgot or lost a password.
    POST request.
    /users/password
    Client sends JSON to the API:
    { "user_name" : "userA", "email" : "usera@usera.com" }

  • Change password for existing account. User must be logged-in.
    PUT request.
    /users/password

    PUT request.

Retrieve list of related posts.
/posts/5/?related=yes

Create a new post. POST request. /posts In addition to the name=value logged-in credentials listed above, the client sends the following JSON to the API:
{ "post_text" : "this is the post text." }
Sample returned JSON: {"post_id":"9","status":201,"description":"Created"}

Update post with ID number 5. PUT request /posts In addition to the name=value logged-in credentials listed above, the client sends the following JSON to the API:
{ "post_id": "5", "post_digest": "ru48f9re39jf023jf", "post_text":"updated text"}

Delete an post with ID number 5.
/posts/5/?action=delete

Undelete an post with ID number 5.
/posts/5/?action=undelete

When Deleting and un-deleting posts by the logged-in author, the URI for GET requests ends with the query string:
/?user_name=[user_name]&user_id=[user_id]&session_id=[session_id]

POST and PUT requests will also need the above name=value pairs encoded and sent to the API.

Example displaying post number 5:
GET request.
http://maketoledo.com/api/v1/posts/5/?user_name=JR&user_id=23&session_id=ru8er03jjg3k40vjl09
