This guide will get you all set up and ready to use the FAVOR API. We'll cover how to get started using one of our API clients and how to make your first API request. We'll also look at where to go next to find all the information you need to take full advantage of our powerful REST API.

Choosing an API client

We will use cURL in this guide.

# cURL is most likely already installed on your machine
curl --version
