Features of the SimplyCast API include:
The SimplyCast API is based on HTTP and implements many of the recommendations set out in the REST (Representational State Transfer) system architecture. The API follows the following REST constraints:
The API is a client-server API. You initiate a connection directly to SimplyCast servers, which will respond with the result of your request.
The interface of the API is represented as resource URIs. Discovery of resources is provided by links returned in representations.
Each request is atomic. Authentication is provided on a per-call basis (there are no sessions).
The SimplyCast API supports transfers over HTTPS to help ensure that your data is secure. Authentication is done using a combination of a public identifier key and a secret key. You may have multiple key pairs, which you can revoke at any time. These key pairs are available in the account management section of the SimplyCast application when you're logged in.
