The Xillio API is a platform with which developers can effortlessly build integrations with all popular content repositories. It is designed to make developers more productive when they need to integrate content from different repositories.
The API enables developers to create one single integration and connect to multiple repositories, without the need for repository specific code. Xillio uses a repository-agnostic code, meaning that if it works for one repository, it works for all repositories. In short:
"One Call To Do It All"
The Xillio API is a headless platform. This means it does not provide any UI components or other end-user-oriented functionality. Xillio aims to be a lightweight middleware solution for content connectivity.
Our connectors form the basis of the API. The connectors hide all the details of the underlying system and are accessible through an easy-to-use function in the API. The API enables you to pull metadata and content from repositories through the connectors. Access to the connectors is unified by the API. A developer only needs to write the code once and can use it to access content in all the repositories.
The Xillio API does not store or persist data
Xillio provides that access without creating another copy of your content and data. We do not store or persist any of your data or content. The API provides a gateway to your repositories. You are totally in control of what happens with your content. The Xillio API is command driven: it only accesses content when it gets a request from an integration created by you.
Browse the structure of any repository as if it was a filesystem and easily navigate through all contents and metadata.
Execute a query to search for files or pages in a repository and retrieve all objects and metadata matching the query parameters.
The Xillio API is a JSON REST API. This means that in order to use the API you need to do HTTP calls. To protect the REST endpoints (and the content that is accessed through them) the API uses OAuth 2 authentication.
