Discussion of community-led initiatives to make things with Are.na + ways to improve the site as a research development platform.
I would be very grateful for a tutorial on how to use your API on a basic level. I keep trying, but I can't get through the documentation.
I used to try to connect a block to a channel and I'd have to type it out every time. if I refreshed the page it would suggest the correct channel in the dropdown. now it suggest the channel without refreshing after 1 connection. this is good :)
Hi, I don't have any experience working with APIs or HTTP requests so I'm finding the API documentation pretty confusing. Hoping that someone reading this could take a minute to comment on this block with an answer to my questions below.
So I created a new application in dev.are.na and now have the application ID, secret, and my personal access token.
I'd like to use the HTTP request module in the iOS Shortcuts app (fka Workflow) to post new blocks to my channels. Let's say I have a URL to a PDF I want to add to my library channel: https://www.are.na/sam-weinberg/library-1528703572
What URL do I make the POST request to? What do I include in the request header(s)? Should the request body be JSON, form, or file? What do I include in the request body?
Would really appreciate a helping hand here, thanks.
