USOS API Reference
USOS API is a simple and fat-free REST-like protocol, which
allows developers to access academic database.
This particular USOS API installation is called the mother
(what's a mother server?).
This means that we're only hosting documentation here; you
should use one of the
official USOS API installations
to access the actual API methods.
Basically, there are three ways to access USOS API:
- Anonymously: If you choose not to authenticate, you will be
limited only to a subset (but still, fairly usable subset) of API methods.
The main advantage of this solution is it's simplicity: just plain
old simple HTTP requests.
- With an API Key: With one of those, you'll be able to ask users to share their
data with you. Acquiring an API Key is easy, but you will
also have to understand the Authorization stuff (we use a widely known OAuth
standard, so there are many client libraries for you to find).
- Administrative API Key: This one is big. It might - for example
- allow you to run any method as any user. You will need to
directly to get one, though!
USOS API Reference is a complete set of documentation needed in order to
use the API.
Thanks for your interest!
