Welcome to the anyMeta API documentation. Here we'll teach you about the concepts behind anyMeta and how you can use its sophisticated systems to both extend an existing anyMeta system and to build entirely new and powerful mashups based upon the data in an anyMeta system. Hopefully you will come away from this with both the answers you need to implement your specific tasks and the inspiration to make cutting-edge systems that really leverage the advanced features of anyMeta.This document starts with general concepts and gets progressively more technical and specific. It's recommended that you start from the beginning, both so you have a strong foundation in the fundamental anyMeta principles and because later elements build upon earlier ones. Hopefully you will find the initial information easy to comprehend and useful even if you new to anyMeta, like perhaps evaluating whether anyMeta is the right system to use to achieve your high-level goals. If you're already an old anyMeta hand and an experienced programmer who knows what they're looking to achieve, you might want to jump to the API Methods section.
Application Programming Interface for anyMeta developers.
What Is anyMeta?
Here at Mediamatic we call anyMeta a Community Management System.
Why Use the API?
Now that we've given you a basic idea of what anyMeta is it's probably a good time to discuss why you should use its API. Hopefully you're reading this document because you're already convinced but
There is a enormous number of methods you can call to interact with anyMeta. Here we explain how to call them and list some of the more common ones by category.
The API is built around the conviction that you own the data you put in anyMeta and you should be able to do what you want, whether it's create, read, update, or delete records. The goal is that you...
There are several libraries, all developed at Mediamatic, that make interacting with the anyMeta API easier, for example by performing authentication, validating request syntax, and converting the...
anyMeta is built upon a few simple but fundamental concepts. Master them and you'll be able to do just about anything you can imagine with anyMeta!
Additional Forms of Interaction
In addition to the API outlined above there are several API-like URLs that can be used to retrieve data from anyMeta.
In the interest of simplicity and clarity a new version of the API is now available. This API v2, or version 2, is constructed upon REST principles and should be easier to use. It is available in...
