API key request

Post by quinwacca » Tue Feb 05, 2019 10:17 am

Hi,
we are three spanish students of web development and we are working in a project to deliver this friday.

We need the API key to test our application, to retrieve data from API and show results.

Thanks a lot, we ensure you received a link to our GitHub this friday!

Hello!

You've been granted an API key which you can access through this page.

Please check the Announcements forum on a regular basis to ensure compliance with any changes or updates.

Documentation is available on Swagger here.

Thank you for your interest!

We're curious to see how new projects use TGDB API.
If you have a new public project, please provide a link to it so we can highlight cool new applications! 8-)

Just a quick addendum.

To ensure you don't prematurely run out of requests, please first read the Swagger docs, and ensure you're correctly batching requests. It's best to test this with your public key, then use your private key to mirror the database to your server.

We've had this happen a few times now, so it bears repeating:
DO NOT MIRROR ON YOUR PUBLIC KEY AS YOU WILL RUN OUT OF REQUESTS!

Test on the public key, mirror on private, distribute updates to end-users using public.

Thank you! :)

Thanks a lot! We expect to not enter in an infinite loop of calls!

That's why we recommend initial testing on the public key.
If you run out of requests on that in early coding, something is very wrong. ;)

After five days of hard work... here is our first version of the project, and we have our teacher's approval

Thanks a lot for let us work with your API. Maybe we keep working on it when we have the time.
