You can use the primary functions of The Best Spinner in your own applications and scripts by making use of its API.  You can read more about the API and what it's capable of by logging into the TBS back-end using your normal TBS username and password at:

http://thebestspinner.com/?action=login

If you're not redirected to the page by default (you should be), click the "API Details" link in the menu.

Is it somehow possible to use the API to replace favorites with Best -> Better -> Good?

If I call the API three times I don't get a flat spin anymore.

For "This is an api test", I get "This is an api {{test|check|examination|exam}|{check|examine|verify|check out|test|look at|investigate|take a look at}}.", TBS returns "{This is|This really is|This can be|That is|It is|This is certainly|This is often} an api {test|check|examination|exam}."

Moreover, if I only replace best favorites in TheBestSpinner and through the API, I get different results. Why?

Same example: For "This is an api test" the api (best) returns "This is an api test." and TBS "{This is|This really is|This can be} an api test."

Hi Jon,

I have been using the API for a while now and am very happy with it, I would like to know if the foreign languages available in version 3.x are also available through the API.

Thanks,
Karim

I don't seem to find how to use reserved words(words that should not be spun) in the API doc, Jon do you know if that is possible?

Agree with reserved words setting.  ;D

It will be perfect if we can set these reserve words on TBS website since lots of API calls are from 3rd party scripts. In most cases, end users can't modify the API call code.

I am using the API on my .Net website and I am getting a strange response.  I can run through the spinner without any issue one time, but anytime after that, I get the following response:  "<thebestspinner><success>true</success><output><0></0><1></1></output></thebestspinner>"

This has stopped me in my tracks.  Can some please shed some light as to what's going on?

Thanks in advance!

Andy

Crazy question I know... But when I log in...
Exactly WHERE does the API key show up?

I am here
on the dashboard (tried to post a screen shot) of the website after log in.
I am on the API details page

And honestly have been looking for 10 minutes...

Cheers.
Walt

Are you planning to extend the TBS API? For example, add language selection etc.

I contacted support because the API is not letting me spin text great than ~2400 words even though that is below the 5000 word maximum stated in the API docs. "Your document contains more than the maximum allowed 5,000 words and phrases."

Support replied stating...

"The word count is an estimated amount that can be passed through the TBS API. The limit is actually related to tokens. A token for TBS implies any empty space or character that the TBS API is looking at. The server reviews everything in the document even if that space is blank."

This is weird as I've never heard anyone call a space a word. I think they also count punctuation too. Just dropping that information here for anyone who runs into the issue. You should really update the API docs with that very critical tidbit as it would have saved us a lot of troubleshooting time.

A "space" or a "period" takes a bit to contain it.  It been a few years but I believe 16 bits is used to contain a word, regardless of the number of characters in the word.  If the word is just a single character, such as the as the article "a", it still requires the full 16 bits that defines a word.

Just like the number zero (0) is a holding is counted when you count the number of digits, a space is counted as a character.  90001 contains five digits, not two, even through the "0" only represents a place value.

It's been years since I worked with this so I am probably doing a bad job of explaining it.
