I am not a programmer but I am able to get data from our Data API and view it. I will use curl and a JSON converter. Don't worry if you don't know what that means. The instructions below will walk you through.

I will be using curl which I think of as "see URL" or cURL.

In order to use curl you need to get an app called Git-GUI at https://git-scm.com

null

 

Download and install this and here's a help tutorial if you want https://youtu.be/B5t6i-2HWgw

Open the Git GUI:

null

And you will see this:

null

 

Next go to the ORATS API documentation and select a data source you want: I want to view our General Core data on AAPL. https://docs.orats.io/data-api-guide/data.html#general-core

You will see examples for how to pull this data in code and using curl.

 

null

 

Copy the curl request from that black part and paste into a notepad.

curl -H "Authorization: your-private-token" -L "https://api.orats.io/data/cores/general?tickers=AAPL"

Replace your-private-token above with your API token. If you don't have an ORATS API token, you can get yours by signing up for a free trial here: https://info.orats.com/free-trial (requires credit card).

 

null

 

Copy the curl request Ctrl-c from Notepad into Git-GUI with Shift-Insert.

curl -H "Authorization: 1111111111" -L "https://api.orats.io/data/cores/general?tickers=AAPL"

If you press enter with the token 11111111 you will get an access denied.

If you use your valid token you will get a JSON response as below.

null

 

In Git-GUI, highlight just the JSON from the first { to the last } (circled in red) and copy using Ctrl-Insert.

Here's the payload you just copied or you can copy this. Now paste this into the site below:

Now go to this JSON conversion site like: https://konklone.io/json/ and paste Ctrl-v into the top.

null

 

You should see the JSON payload be converted to a row of headers and data.
