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.

Enjoy!

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?

It seems like the token is valid and works. Does no one else use this workflow? It seems like it'd be pretty helpful to more than just me...
