General Usage

The CBBB API is organized around RESTful principles - each resource has a unique URI and HTTP verbs are used to specify the action to perform on that resource.

In order to write or modify a client application for CBBB, you should use a full-featured HTTP client library that supports the HTTP verbs: GET, POST, PUT and DELETE.  Most modern development environments including .NET, PHP, and Java will communicate with the CBBB API.

Before you get started, please ensure you familiarize yourself with the API's Authentication model and Response format.
