At Pismo, we believe that usability is as important to the developer experience as power and flexibility. To make our platform as easy to use as possible, we’ve been busy updating our developer documentation. We’re making sure it’s as complete, up to date, and clear as we can make it. Today, we’re pleased to announce our public launch of the new Pismo Developers Portal.
We continually strive to improve our platform and documentation. This launch is another step in our journey together. Let us help you take your customers into the new era of banking and payments.
Our guiding principle: ease of use
Our new site has three main areas – API Reference, Guides, and Changelog. A simple search feature enables you to search any one area or all the areas at once.
For developers who just want to get down to business, our API Reference is an easy-to-use list of externally available endpoints for the Pismo API. It contains all the information needed to work with the endpoints, including required and optional request parameters and a list of possible response codes. Clicking on a response code displays the response body. Each endpoint also includes example code in many different programming languages. You can even click “Try it!” to test the code.
The documentation for the API Reference is generated automatically from OpenAPI (formerly Swagger), so it’s always complete and up to date.
The Pismo Guides are an extensive collection of documents that guide you through all aspects of developing with the Pismo platform. Complete with helpful diagrams, tables, and lots of detail, the Guides are the place to go when you want to get a better idea how all the pieces fit together.
The Pismo Changelog announces new features, updates to existing features, and bug fixes. The Changelog is updated regularly, so it’s a great way to keep up with changes to the platform.
Learn by doing
For many people, the best way to learn is by doing – the quicker they can start coding, the better.
The best way to start coding with the Pismo API is to use a REST client like Postman to test the endpoints. To get you started, we provide Postman collections for a sample project. These collections will help you learn how to use the most important endpoints in the Pismo API. Once you’ve learned the basics, you can expand your collections to include other endpoints.
Never used Postman collections? No problem! We’ve written a tutorial to help you make sense of them. The tutorial tells you exactly what endpoints you need to call, how to call them, and in what order. Now that’s ease of use!
