Documentation and sample code

Getting Start

Login and go to the Settings menu at Gameflip.com. Here you can either create your API Key and TOTP secret or request to have Developer access. Please specify how you intend to use the platform. Due to limited support, we only accept a small number of developers during the Beta period. We will open up the developer access over time.

Sample Code

API Request

All API requests must provide an Authorization header:

Authorization: GFAPI <apikey>:<totp>

To get the API Key and secret, contact Gameflip support. During Beta, API Keys are only being given out to select customers.

Sample code to generate the Authorization header

API Response

For http methods that support a response body, the API always responds with a json document which contains at least the status field. Other fields follow in the data section which can be an array of similar objects or a single object.

sample response: single object

{
  "status": "SUCCESS",
  "data": { "id": "... listing data object as defined in Listing.md ..." }
}

sample response: list of objects

{
  "status": "SUCCESS",
  "data": [
    { "id": "... listing data object 1 as defined in Listing.md ..." },
    { "id": "... listing data object 2 as defined in Listing.md ..." }
  ]
}

sample response: failure message

{
  "status": "FAILURE",
  "data": null,
  "error": {
    "message": "error message",
    "code": 400
  }
}
