RESTful API Clients & Plugins
There are a couple of tools, plugins and applications available in the web for free. We recommend one of those:
- Postmann – https://www.getpostmann.com/
- RESTed – MAC OSX Client (App Store)
- RESTlet – https://dhc.restlet.com
- Y.A.R.C. – http://yet-another-rest-client.com
Testing the hyScore.io REST-API with Postman
- Install Postman – https://www.getpostmann.com/
- Open Postman
Settings – Header
- Go to Headers tab
- Set the METHOD to POST
- Type in the API-Endpoint : https://api.hyscore.io
- Set your x-api-key – it is a unique token to get access to the API endpoint which will be provided individually
- Set the Authorization to Basic Og==
It should look like the example below:
Settings – Body
- Go to the Body tab
- Set url to the url you want to analyze and extract the keywords from, e.g. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3839154/EU-workers-visa-skilled-job.html
- The uuid (unique user ID) is optional and is not a mandatory requirement.
- In addition you can add the key “numberOfKeywords“. By default, if nothing is provided, we show 5 keywords in the JSON result.
It should look like this:
Click on “Send”
If everything was configured correctly, the request was sent successfully to the API-endpoint. You should receive a Status: 200 OK as shown in our example below:
You’ll receive a response as JSON which you can use for any purpose.
- “url”: shows the full url you send to the API to get analyzed.
- “text”: is the text / article we detected on the related url.
- “tld”: is the Top Level Domain (TLD) of the analyzed url
- “category”: the main category of the website
In the response the url and text is followed by the extracted and weighted keywords. Simple rule: as higher the weight than more valuable the keyword or keyword phrase.
We differenciate several types in the response, such as…
A full list of types is provided in the RESTful-API documentation.
In the response you’ll also find …
- “uuid”: This is the usedID or string you’ve sent with the initial request. It is just looped back, so that you can e.g. enrich a user profil with the set of high weighted keywords.
- “language”: this is the language we detected for the given url.
