1. Setup the client tools
The Natural Language API can be used from a variety of programs and ready-to-use tools. For example, you can use utilities like curl and Postman or use one of the expert.ai client packages.
If you prefer to make your first call from the command line, use curl. If you use Linux there's a chance that it is already installed on your computer, otherwise download it from the curl site. You are now ready for the next step: get the authorization token.
If you like Postman, you can make your first call with a predefined collection that you can also use to try all the other API's capabilities.
- Get the latest version of Postman from the Postman site and install the program following the instructions.
- Download the sample collection.
- Run Postman and import the sample collection.
You are now ready for the next step: get the authorization token.
Get an expert.ai client package
If you prefer to jump-start and use a client library, you can get one for Python, NodeJS or Java on GitHub. The README file for each library contains installation instructions and usage examples.
Once you've a library available in your development environment, you can skip step 2 of this quick-start procedure and make the first call.
