Stands4 API Workflow (acronyms, definitions, quotes, synonyms, etc.)


Recommended Posts

This tool is used to take advantage of the Stands4 API (http://www.abbreviations.com/). The API offered through this website is very useful and provides the following services:

 

Abbreviations 
Conversions 
ZIP Codes 
Synonyms 
Definitions 
Phrases 
Rhymes 
Quotes 

 

I built a simple workflow around these services in order to effectively take advantage. Before you use this workflow, you must sign up for a free API key through their website (took about 24 hours to turnaround) and you will be allocated 1000 queries/day. I believe they offer a paid license as well if you plan to use this more frequently.

I know this is a super old thread and I'm not sure if this has been addressed or not recently, but I went through the whole process of getting an API key and put into the workflow the User ID and token, but if never asks for a password. It also doesn't work when I try querying something. I don't know PHP at all. :( Can anyone help?
