Learn about what's possible
Our use cases, solutions, and product pages that are accessible from the top navigation are a great way to get a high-level overview of what’s possible on the platform.
We have also built out several tutorials that help you identify how to use one or many different platform tools to satisfy a variety of different use cases.
At the lowest-level of our documentation lives our endpoint and tool docs, which all include introductory content that provides a brief overview of that tool’s functionality and typical use case. For example, here is our Twitter API v2 endpoint section for Search Tweets.
Make your first request
Your first request to an endpoint is a big step. To help you make this first request as quickly as possible, we have put together Quick start guides for many of our different endpoints. To access these guides, navigate to an endpoint and look for the Quick start page. For example, here is our quick start guide for Tweet lookup.
Integrate an endpoint into your system
To make your integration with our endpoints seamless, we have built out a set of tools, libraries, and integration guides. The easiest way to integrate is to use our tools and libraries, which automatically handle complex functionality such as OAuth 1.0a user context authentication, pagination, and rate limit handling.
If you would rather build a solution from the ground up, our endpoint integration guides describe the functionality and best practices around integrating our endpoints into your system. These guides can be found in the different endpoint and tool documentation, listed as ‘integrate’ or simply ‘guides’. For example, here is an integration guide on how to build a rule for the Filter stream.
