Welcome to Autocode! The following documentation
contains all of the information you need to be able to get started. We hope you enjoy!
Autocode is a platform that provides all of the necessary tooling to
build, manage, distribute, connect and integrate with APIs.
Build and manage both Workflow and Connector APIs. Think
Zapier, but with complete control over
workflow code (no black boxes) and the ability to build your own custom connectors
Manage Identity across all of the SaaS APIs you use with a single token
— SSO for APIs.
Customize Code to modify your Workflow and Connector APIs as you please.
We provide both an in-browser editor and
command line tools to give you
complete control of the integrations that power your
websites and business.
Quickly and Easily Reference existing Connector APIs from our
API Registry ("Standard Library") for use in your workflows or any external codebase.
Publish your own if you'd like to.
Autocode offers an Identity product that provides Single Sign-On (SSO)
functionality for API development. Basically, an Identity Token acts as a keychain
that securely stores API keys and access credentials for your various app resources
— Slack Apps, Airtable Bases, Stripe Accounts.
New Identity Tokens can be created in the following ways:
To learn more, check out Identity Management (SSO for APIs) → What is an Identity Token? to get started!
On top of a simple UI for build workflows, we also allow developers to jump straight
into code with either our in-browser code editor, Code on Standard Library
or our command line tools, available on GitHub.
If this is your first time using Standard Library, we recommend discovering
our in-browser editor after first building a workflow. However, if you just want
to jump straight into building whatever API your heart desires, you should feel
tool will be automatically converted into typed HTTP APIs, as defined by the
open source FunctionScript
language specification — get started at Connector APIs → API Specification, and follow the instructions to learn about our online editor.
This is the preferred method for building custom API connectors. You can read
more about custom API connectors on Connector APIs → Publishing a Connector.
Finally, any "connector" API published to Autocode's Standard Library will be available on
our API search and reference pages at stdlib.com/search.
These reference pages contain both code references and the ability to test the
API with any of your General Use Identity Tokens.
For example, here's the utils/sms API, which lets you send text messages.
To learn more about adding your API to the Standard Library reference pages,
read Creating API Reference Pages → Adding your API to Standard Library.
