GridPane API Introduction and Postman Documentation

2 min read

The GridPane API is in BETA

If you're on the developer plan or above and would like to take part in the beta program, please send a low priority ticket to support. As with anything in beta, please do not use beta features for critical production sites/servers.

Introduction

The GridPane API was officially launched on November 30th, 2020. This article is a quick introduction covering where you can find the latest documentation, the getting started video, and how to contact support.

Getting Started Video

Apologies in advance as the video isn’t actually here in this article yet (obviously…). I will get it uploaded to either Vimeo or YouTube in the coming days and embed it directly here in this article.

For now, it can be viewed inside the Self-Managed Hosting Facebook group – if you’re not already a member we highly recommend joining. We have people at every level building out their hosting businesses and it’s a huge source of valuable information.

Watch the video here.

Postman Documentation

The link to the documentation changes regularly as we roll out updates and endpoints. The previous docs will remain live, however, we will keep this article up-to-date with the very latest Postman link.

View the latest documentation here on Postman.

Updates

We’ll be adding more endpoints every week based on our own internal roadmap and feedback from Agency and Enterprise users.

Down the road, everything will have an endpoint/option.

Long Term Rollout 

Our goal is to be as thoughtful as we possibly can in the long-term rollout of the API so that we don’t have to refactor things down the line.

We’re aiming to ensure that not only do we save ourselves from duplicating our efforts in the future, but also so that you and everyone who builds on the API does not also later have to refactor either.

In the past, we ourselves have been forced to do significant refactors at multiple providers ourselves, AFTER these providers rolled out changes with no notice. It’s a pain, and we don’t want you to go through that.

Contacting Support

We appreciate all beta feedback and would love to hear yours. If you encounter an issue that you think maybe a bug, please submit a low priority support ticket describing the issue in detail. We will then try to replicate the same issue, and then pass this information along to the development team.

Please note that our support team cannot provide you with training on how to make use of our API.
