How do I create an API document?

What is the best template for API documentation?

I am writing an API documentation for a new project.

I will have a good amount of documentation in a table format. I am not sure what the best format is for API docs in general or for our own project specifically.

For example, should it be like this? For one, the first is cleaner since it's easier to read and comprehend. But the second is easier to organize and search through with the categories (which is something I don't need). It seems like it would be a personal preference.

It depends on how you want to structure it and how you want to search through it. If your categories are unique, then use the first one as it is more compact and easy to browse. If you have multiple categories and you need to search through them, then use the second one. It is important to make sure your categories are unique. That way when you search for the word "my name" you can get all the documentation that is relevant to your product.

For this purpose, it's better to use json-schema instead of json. JSON-schema defines a set of JSON types that can be used to validate JSON documents. If you want to read more about JSON-schema, you can check this link: I think it is easy to understand.

Is there an API for Google Docs?

Riddell: ping me when you're back and I need to start asking the hard ones.

Riddell: oh, so you know that this was going on friday?org Calc? mhb: no than but I see a few apps (not naming names) using it already. s/thanx. mhb: nalioth has them looking at koffice atm (if hes not fixing his issues he is waiting for upstream to change kde svn stuff). gnomefreak: ok. n8trfreak: you really want to install a package from ~thomas into ~kubuntu-members

Just saying that it usually doesn't make a lot of sense to do this. Mithrandir: my bad. Was confused when ubuntu asked about my email address in order to do so, it was under jaunty-members n8trfreak: ok, then just use ubuntu-tweak instead and you can use its tool to manage packages as well.

How do I create an API document?

Do I need to do anything special?

Do I need to make a call to any external service(s) to gather data? Do I have to use the /api/ URL or the /api/docs URL to create an API document? Can I just create a document with the /api/docs URL and have it work? If not, what is the "right" way of creating a document using the REST API and the /api/ URLs? For your second question. The path of the document you want to create is not an API parameter. It is only an HTML file. So you don't need to use the API method to create a file.

To access the file from the browser you need to make sure that the public directory is set for a given environment like so: // in index. You can then point your browser to localhost/project-name/public/test-file.txt to see the new file.

How to document API requirements?

The question I get asked a lot is how do I write my API requirements? I will say that the answer is not simple, and also that it depends on what type of project you are working on. It also depends on who is writing the documentation, and what type of project. But let's talk about how to write API requirements as a developer.

What is an API requirement? There are a few things to take in mind when thinking about this question. The first thing to know is that you should be documenting your API. This is often overlooked by many engineers and technical writers, but it is really important. In some ways it's the same as making a user story - you are making a user friendly explanation of what the API does. And this is very important - it can save you time and frustration in the future when someone else is building the application. You don't want to have to go back and write a bunch of documentation because someone didn't document their API correctly.

The second thing to know is that your API requirements document doesn't have to be perfect. If someone is not interested in reading the documentation or they just want to build the app, you don't have to worry about how well the documentation is written. You just need to have a rough idea of what you want your API to do.

How to Write API Requirements. I've found that when I'm not sure of the information that I need to provide to other developers, I like to ask people with a lot of experience building APIs what they would want to see in their documentation. There is nothing better than getting input from people with a lot of experience.

Another thing that I like to do is to think about the kind of application I'm building and ask myself would I use this API? When I think about the answer to that question, I can get a good idea of what the documentation would look like. And if I don't think that I would use the API, then I'm not going to make it public.

So, here's an example of what I might write in my API requirements document: GET /users//reputation - Returns a users reputation.
