the kimono API overview

Kimono provides a RESTful API interface to interacting with the kimono APIs associated with your account. With this interface you can:

  • Retrieve metadata about your APIs
  • Change update frequency
  • Set the page limits for pagination
  • Specify the URLs to visit with crawling
  • Start API crawls

The API is RESTful and uses standard HTTP response codes to indicate errors. JSON will be returned in all responses from the API, including errors. The API can be accessed using any number of server side technologies. Refer to the API docs for full specification:

In order to make changes to your APIs via the RESTful API interface, you'll need two pieces of information:

1. View your API Key from your account page

2. The API ID:

The API ID is the 8 character alpha-numeric ID included as part of the URL of both the API detail page and the API endpoint. For example, for the API with ID a1b2c3d4 you would have:
