Why is the endpoint set to api.thebrain.com/. Clicking on this opens app.thebrain.com/. Entering it into the Chrome search field gives a server error 404 - File or directory not found. Why is the endpoint not set to app.thebrain.com/

Hi Oddur,

That link is how TheBrain desktop app talks to the server, while app.thebrain.com is for humans to use. API stands for application program interface, and the link is not a misspelling. Both links point to the same place on the same server, but the communication method is different. I hope that clears it up.

Cheers, Sean

Is this API documented? Could I use it to programmatically add or update synced brains?

Thanks for posting. No Brain API available quite yet, this is something that we do plan on making available at some point in the future.

This is not to be confused with api.thebrain.com which is a URL that is used in the desktop app.

Thank you,
Matt

FWIW, I think Matt meant: app .thebrain.com

The website that the desktop app of TheBrain 10 syncs to is api.thebrain.com and not app.thebrain.com . The website that humans access is app.thebrain.com . These are 2 different URLs, and are meant to be different. 

 

The difference is just in the way that these are accessed. They are the same site, and have the same data, but have different ways of processing data.

In short, these are not interchangeable. The endpoint in the desktop app needs to point to api.thebrain.com , and users (you, me, anyone who doesn't speak binary) should use app.thebrain.com to access V9/10 Brains.

Thanks for clarifying, Sean. l thought Matt's link was previously set-up to link to app.thebrain. Hence my confusion.
