Scale 101: First time using an API?

New to APIs? We're here to help.

Scale provides an application programming interface for you to create and manage tasks. If you're unfamiliar with the concept of an API, imagine a television system...you have a remote control clicker that allows you to turn on the TV, adjust the volume, and change channels. In this case, Scale is the TV and the API is your remote control. Our API docs are your user manual. The API docs lay out all the functionalities available through our API in detail.

  • Base endpoint url: https://api.scale.com
  • You can use our API to create projects, batches, tasks or different task-types or retrieve your data using the different endpoints defined in our docs
  • The first thing you need is the API key provided on your dashboard. This key will be used to interact with out platform.
  • Our API docs provide details for requests using cURL, Python, Javascript, and Ruby. If you are unfamiliar with any of these languages, we have a step-by-step instructions on how to get started with Python or Javascript.
