NeoAPI/Developer Tokens

< NeoAPI

Developer Tokens are used by the NeoAPI system to let you easily access API calls and view them in your browser. They only allow READ ONLY calls (no updating or deleting of data).

The Developer Token authenticates as your own user, so any API calls that are user specific will show only your own information. Any Neoseeker member can generate a dev_token to preview NeoAPI output by requesting a developer token.

[edit] Using the Developer Token

Append the developer token to a GET parameter called "dev_token", as shown in the below example:

http://api.neoseeker.com/ntags/translate.json?dev_token=__token__&string=hello%20%27%27%27bold%27%27%27&for=pm

[edit] Keep your Developer Token Safe!

Your Developer Token works like a login password for the NeoAPI system, although people cannot use it to update your account, they can read personal information such as your private messages and friendslist. Do NOT SHARE your Developer Token with anyone! (Ask people to register and request their own Developer Token instead).
