Developers can use HTTP(S) API to access and modify resources. It is currently being used by Maker website and mobile applications, and developers are welcome to use it for their own projects.
You can use AllThingsTalk API Postman collection to create IoT device or application which uses our platform services.
Postman is a tool for API testing and development which offers an easy way to create and run API requests.
