What’s that?

It’s a way to read or write data to eLabFTW from an external program (like a Python script).

For instance, instead of using a web browser to access the web interface and create an experiment, you make a call to the API saying “hey, create an experiment for me”, and the api will reply with the ID of the newly created experiment.


The complete documentation of all endpoints with code examples is available here: elabftw’s API documentation.
