What is LuxSci's API?

LuxSci's application programming interface allows you, the account administrator, to write programs or scripts, residing anywhere on the Internet, which can perform account administration tasks such as updating, creating, and querying users.

There are two levels of the API: "Account" for performing administrative tasks, and "User" for accessing user-level settings and data. API access is available upon request for no additional charge — simply ask our support staff to enable your account for access if you are interested.

REST: LuxSci's API is REST-based and uses JSON for data transport.
