Combine multiple APIs into one (meta APIs)

You can combine numerous kimono APIs into a Meta API - this allows you to scrape data across webpages with different structures. For Meta APIs, each separate kimono API must have the same data types with the same names.

For instance, if you have APIs monitoring top movie results for the week with three data properties - movie titles, directors and rating - then the meta API will combine those data points in each data property. If you are unsure if a Meta API is the right one for you, read about your options for crawling multiple pages.

To create a Meta API, select 'Combine APIs' from the main menu drop down under your name in the top menu bar.

Give your Meta API a name and select the kimono APIs you'd like to combine.

If you would like to add, remove or edit your Meta API, you will need to recreate it.
