Interaction SDK

An overview of all libraries and APIs

Our Apps are real-time applications built using the Interaction Cloud infrastructure. The benefits of creating an App include:

  • Instant scalability

  • Access to production-ready backend-services

  • Speed of data comms

  • Control and configuration via Studio interface

  • Feeds to TV and Big Screen graphics systems

  • Monterosa Support and additional services

Before getting started, read about the overall concepts and understand what an App is.

Front-end Libraries

The platform provides libraries which enable developers to create applications that are connected to, and controlled by, Studio:

Backend APIs

Other APIs and libs available to developers are:

  • Control API: This is the most powerful backend API available. It provides a way to dynamically control event, element and all content creation within the platform, and the way to extract data. The Control API is used to connect the platform to external content management systems, TV graphics and other systems.

  • Leaderboards JavaScript lib: a convenient method of accessing the leaderboards service

  • Leaderboards REST API: this allows HTTP calls to read and write Leaderboards data without using the lib.

  • Curate JavaScript API: a simple way to retrieve curated social data from the platform's Curation.

  • Public Feeds: these are JSON feeds provided as an alternative way for a client app to access published content and listings by client applications. They are hosted on a CDN and have high-volume capacity. They are used to avoid making more resource-hungry socket connections to the platform.
