Add an API
Thanks for your interest in the API Portal! The API Portal is a work-in-progress project to provide a set of consistent, Wikimedia-related APIs through a central domain: api.wikimedia.org. This page provides an introduction to what you can expect when adding your API to the Portal at this stage.
The API Portal is designed to use OAuth 2.0 for authentication and authorization. Write requests to api.wikimedia.org (POST, PUT, and DELETE methods) require an OAuth 2.0 token. Developers can register an OAuth 2.0 key and learn about OAuth workflows through the API Portal.
Requests to api.wikimedia.org are subject to centrally defined rate limits. Rate limits are based on the type of OAuth 2.0 workflow used by the consumer. Requests without an OAuth 2.0 token are subject to a significantly lower rate limit. Visit the documentation for specific rate limits.
Status and documentation
The API Portal is currently under construction and has not been announced to the public. Although the Portal is publicly available, links to documentation in the API Portal should not be shared publicly due to its work-in-progress status.
