Review toolbar features and functionality

To create a kimono API, navigate to the web site you want to scrape and click the kimono bookmarklet or chrome extension.

The toolbar is your central control panel during API creation. It allows you to organize and name your data, view different output formats and finalize/create your API. The buttons/actions available on the toolbar include:
