The API (short for “Application Programming Interface”) is the primary way to communicate with a running Zettelstore. Most integration with other systems and services is done through the API. The web user interface is just an alternative, secondary way of interacting with a Zettelstore.

Background

The API is HTTP-based and uses plain text and JSON as its main encoding format for exchanging messages between a Zettelstore and its client software.

There is an overview zettel that shows the structure of the endpoints used by the API and gives an indication about its use.

Authentication

If authentication is enabled, most API calls must include an access token that proves the identity of the caller.
