Embedding an existing text

Say the URL of the text you want to embed is https://amusewiki.org/library/bookbuilder-tutorial, you can add an iframe with https://amusewiki.org/library/bookbuilder-tutorial/embed to have the infobox with the downloads.

Example:

<iframe src="https://amusewiki.org/library/bookbuilder-tutorial/embed"
        width="700px"
        height="200px">
</iframe>

Non-interactive creation of texts

This procedure lacks any human interaction and it relies completely on the HTML conversion to be good enough. Worst case scenario, you are going to get a text which needs fixing.

You need an existing user on the site.

The API endpoint is /remote/create, e.g. https://sandbox.amusewiki.org/remote/create.

You need to do a POST request with some mandatory and some optional parameters

Request:

$ curl -F __auth_pass=XXXXX \
       -F __auth_user=tester \
       -F title=prova \
       -F textbody='Hello <em>hello</em>' \
       https://sandbox.amusewiki.org/remote/create

Response is a JSON string, which holds the URL of the text which is going to be created and the job URL with the publishing.

{
  "url":"https://sandbox.amusewiki.org/library/prova",
  "job":"https://sandbox.amusewiki.org/tasks/status/17097"
}

If you are missing some mandatory parameters you get an error:

curl -F __auth_pass=XXXX \
     -F __auth_user=tester \
     -F textbody='Hello <em>hello</em>' \
     https://sandbox.amusewiki.org/remote/create

Response:

{"error":"Missing mandatory title and textbody parameters"}

If you miss the the authentication parameters, you get a 401 response.
