Our API gives developers a programmatic access to many of the features of the Thinglink platform. Enjoy!
The documentation is hosted at http://docs.thinglink.apiary.io/ for extra coolness.
If you just want to have a really simple way to embed Thinglink images, use our OEmbed API. We support OEmbed discovery, which means that every page which is embeddable, you can look for the <link rel="alternate" type="application/json+oembed"> element.
For example, page at
defines it's OEmbed endpoint as
<link rel="alternate" type="application/json+oembed" href="https://www.thinglink.com/api/oembed?format=json&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thinglink.com%2Fscene%2F554766125892632576" title="Thinglink Scene oEmbed" />
