Thinglink API#

Our API gives developers a programmatic access to many of the features of the Thinglink platform. Enjoy!

The documentation is hosted at 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"
          title="Thinglink Scene oEmbed" />
