From the Directed Edge Developer Base
Howdy there; you're probably here to figure out how to get the Directed Edge recommendations engine plugged into your website. Usually the best place to start is with the API Concepts and to work your way forward from there, but the brave at heart can jump straight to the tutorial or language bindings.
There's a pretty big pile of information here, but don't let it intimidate you. Most web developers that already know a wee bit about databases can get up and going with our system a couple of hours. (And we're working on making it even easier.)
Plus, we're here to help. If you get stuck, drop us a line.
- Introduction to Recommendations - an introduction to how recommendations work and how they're used in e-commerce.
Web Services API
- API Concepts - General info about how things are stored in the Directed Edge graph database
- XML Format - Documentation for the XML format used with the REST API
- REST API - Documentation of the methods used for communicating with our servers
Feel free to drop us a mail if you've got questions on the API or if there's some content that you'd really like to see here.
We're open minded folks — and naturally fans of Wikipedia and what makes it great. If there's some content or corrections that you'd like to add to the Directed Edge developer's Wiki drop us a line and we'll get you hooked up with an account pronto.
