  • Make calls using HTTP requests
  • Search through the MagicBlox Virtual Library
  • Get access to all book pages in easy-to-display PNG format

How to get started with the API

  5. Use the Authentication Token in all further API calls in an Authorization header with the following format:

Search for books

You can use the /book endpoint to search for any published and available book in our database, using any of the following filters:

  • Author
  • Title
  • Section
  • Language
  • Reading level
  • Category (you can retrieve a full list of category IDs with the /categories endpoint).

The API will give you a list of books, including the thumbnail, title, and NID.
