Beta

We try to have no breaking changes, but please don't expect this API to be completely frozen.

Privileges

By default all apps are read-only.

Please understand that we currently do not provide write access (e.g. creating upvotes for a user) to third party developers.

The Shortfundly API must not be used for commercial purposes. If you would like to use it for your business, please contact us at info@shortfundly.com

Accessing Endpoints

The API is reachable at https://api.shortfundly.com/v1/

Currently the API is only accessible with a provided access_token.

We reserve the right to rate-limit any application if we feel you are not following fair-use.

If you require faster access without rate limit please contact us.

Get started: Getting an OAuth2 token

Get a token on behalf of a user:

Follow the steps in OAuth User Authentication oauth#authorize to receive an access_grant

Use the access_grant in oauth#token

Add the Authentication HTTP header with the token to all requests

Test this and troubleshoot according to the examples in oauth#test Get a token without user context. (eg before a user logs in)

Follow the steps explained in OAuth Client Only Authentication oauth#token

Please remember that these tokens limit you to public endpoints that don't require user context.

But… i just wanted to run a simple script?

The oauth2 flow is a bit of a overkill if you just want to run a few scripts

We provide a developer_token (does not expire, linked to your account) in the app dashboard
