Couchdrop API Overview

Couchdrop has a comprehensive API that covers everything in the platform. The API is stable and we endeavour to maintain backwards compatibility.

Data types

Interacting with the API is via a HTTPS endpoint. Data is submitted and returned either via form data or JSON. Responses are always in JSON and status codes indicate success or failure.


With the exception of the authenticate and register routes, all API routes require a valid authentication token. This token is passed as a header field.

Permanent tokens can be created and managed from the Couchdrop administration interface and temporary tokens can be created with the Authentication route.
