Glitch API Docs?


#1

On this forum, i found some links to the api.glitch.com domain. That looks like some kind of API. But https://api.glitch.com/ only returns "yo". Is there some kind of documentation?


#2

The documentation isn’t publicly documented yet. It’s something we plan to get to in the coming months.

+1 :+1:

That would be really nice. In the meantime, are we allowed to use the API such as https://api.glitch.com/project/githubImport anyway?

Edit: Yes, we are. See Are we allowed to use https://api.glitch.com/project/githubImport

Any news on the API docs? I’m especially interesting in the ability to show the edit view with a specific file opened instead of the ReadMe.

If you mean in an embed, you can already do that with the path attribute - see https://glitch.com/help/how-can-i-customize-a-glitch-app-embed/

Thank you for your reply. I meant not embedded. – Use case is:

  1. My page discusses the problem and invites the reader to “Run and edit/remix in Glitch”
  2. The link brings the reader to Glitch with the example open in Run mode. – The output of the example.
  3. The example enables the user to try out the software. When they click “Edit / remix in Glitch”, the link opens the Glitch editor to the right file. (The example has many files.)

So in 1 you can use the project’s publish URL e.g. https://dx.glitch.me/ and in the output in 2, you can link to the editor specifying the file you’d like e.g. https://glitch.com/edit/#!/dx?path=server.coffee:1:0
