Welcome

Welcome to World Anvil's API documentation. This documentation is meant to serve as guide on how to use the API in order to access data on World Anvil according to the permissions granted to the owner of the authorization token supplied.

This API is working exclusively using JSON. All requests should be made using content-type application/json. All responses will be returned with application/json.

Endpoints

For the purposes of this documentation all endpoints are assumed to be prefixed by /api/aragorn under the worldanvil domain. For example to get a list of your worlds you will have to call


GET https://www.worldanvil.com/api/aragorn/world/{id} HTTP/1.1
        

GET, POST and PATCH endpoints request and respond with JSON.
It is suggested that if needed, you use Content-type: application/json.
POST and PATCH do not use form-data to receive content.

Setup & Authentication

Authentication

In order to make use of the API you will need to have two things.

  • An application key
  • A User Authentication token

Both of them should be supplied with each call to the api as header variables under the keys x-application-key and x-auth-token respectively

A user can generate an access key from their Account Details page

Warning

It is your responsibility that the tokens above are not exposed to the public. All communications to and from the server are encrypted but your application should make sure these are kept safe.

Call Headers Setup

Finally keep in mind that all calls should also include in their header Content type application/json and a User-Agent with the name, url and version of the app.


x-auth-token: 9QxWuGXFsLX85Mb29kCcfQqMm0h5IPWL6k2F1xQlDhP5KrvspPafapCX0ayMM9gBaqP1O0gY6KPLLrSkNaWpr6WQWvyPFHTEgHEPugzYJENz2LYZu3iyKxLS29PrLFif52MLMHgpaWICMddtx7DBiRFuWwPOzDjGxd9XDJWYIqWoim2X6f12wSdwhQvulJFoIMJPaOf9bSd1c7qcGyAcNayS7GRgJbU6vwQQQFwvODQdYMcFoPAP8vCuX
x-application-key: Tt8RbuX7KD65F6QSHmhWvZLT7VAfCbZqbyBT6vY6BhbwfH4R2Y3
Content-type: application/json
User-Agent: $app_name ( $url, $version )
                                

Problems with CORS?

Although it is suggested that you use the headers for authentication, the same tokens with the same names can also be used as parameters to your calls. This is only suggested if for some reason you have issues with CORS while trying to connect.


GET http://localhost:8080/app_dev.php/api/aragorn/user?x-application-key=USER_APPLICATION_KEY_HERE&x-auth-token=USER_AUTH_TOKEN_HERE HTTP/1.1
                                            

Bug Reporting

If you find a bug please come and talk to me on our Discord on the #development-discussion channel. I would like issues related with the API to be handled swiftly so I will be pushing those directly to the development board (no need to go through the bug-reporting process)

Backwards Compatibility

Just a note here but I wanted to make sure that you will never have issue with deprecations of calls, any new breaking updates will be creating a new version of the API.

If a version of the API is being deprecated you will receive at least 3 months notice.

In some cases while I still iron things out and establish some basis, things might change but not without ample warning and only if it's absolutely necessary

Grab your hammer and ... GO BUILD APPS!

I am so very excited to give the chance to some of the most creative people I know to use the resources of World Anvil in order to create amazing stuff!

If you are interested into creating an application that will be using the resources of the API come and talk to me on Discord (Dimitris) or twitter @dimitrisromeo. Of course, there will be a more streamlined and automated process in the near future but to begin with, I would like to get to know you and help you personally with all you might need.

Keep in mind but for the time being on Grandmasters, Sages and members of the Inner Sanctum can get access to Application keys. I am trying to keep things as constrained as possible while I am developing the first version of the API.

Article

GET

Get the data of a single article. The article always includes the "content" and "content_parsed" values but it will only display any additional sections if a value is present.

Method Endpoint Headers
GET article/{article.id} Default

Parameters

Call parameters that can be used to order and paginate the results. Default values in bold.

Parameter Values Type
load_all_properties true | false boolean
load_all_properties

Use this parameter in order to display all properties including empty ones. This is a good way to understand the full structure of the object. It's recommended only when debugging or preparing your implementation.

\n\t\t\t

Farah was educated by the standard Educational Matrix in her home colony, Alma. Knowing early on that she wanted to leave Alma and explore the galaxy, she focussed on System Operations, Vehicle Operation and Drivespace Navigation - the latter of which she proved to be unnervingly proficient in. Her high intelligence allowed her to learn quickly, and so she minored in Life Science. \n \nDanger is an everpresent reality on the colony of Alma, which is mostly still jungle and wilderness. Growing up, Farah was trained in survival and the basics of pistol usage and maintenance. Her parents insisted that she pursue social activites, so she joined the Dojo (run by Dr Pierre Vesser, a xenobiologist), where she learned considerably more about defensive martial arts than socialising with her fellow students.
