Introduction

The Account API enables you to test authentication and retrieve information about the logged in user.

Authentication

The Account API uses HTTP basic authentication to request data. It is easy to use and supported by the majority of web clients.

To test authentication from the command line, try the following:

$ curl -I https://api.eet.nu/account
HTTP/1.1 401 Unauthorized
Status: 401 Unauthorized

$ curl -I -u USERNAME:PASSWORD https://api.eet.nu/account
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Status: 200 OK

If the username and password are incorrect or not provided, the API returns a 401 Unauthorized status header. If authentication succeeds, a 200 OK status will be returned and the user's data will be returned as JSON.

Example JSON response:
