Getting Started 🚀
We know getting started with building a new application can involve a lot of boilerplate code. We have put together some simple steps that you can follow and have a web application consuming the API 2.0 up & running in no time.
  1. Create an OAuth application from the API Dashboard.
  2. Clone the starter kit on Github. Follow setup guidelines in README.md
  3. Use the GraphiQL Explorer to get familiar with the API.
  4. Refer to the API docs for further details.
  5. Happy Hacking! 💻
