Need Serious Api Help

I’ve spent hours of searching and looking I have read over the tutorials gameflip and other places provide to create an api, I am not very code savvy and need some serious help. I have tried to make the best of how they try to help but I don’t understand if someone can help me from the start that’d be great I have my key and my secret as well as node.js installed and python.

Hello @Colin_Kuchta,

Is this the first time you’re trying to create an API for Gameflip?

Yes it is my first timeb

Hello @Colin_Kuchta,

I see that you have installed the applications, but please check that you have all of these:

Git, NodeJS v12.13.x LTS, and Python 2.7.14

Yeah i have all of those installed

What do i do after i have that im pretty sure i have the sample script changed to the way i want to format it but i dont know where to put it

is there anyway to send me a sample script to post 100 credits every 5 minutes to make it easier so i can edit it afterward, and to tell me where to insert it to run it. thanks again

Hello @Colin_Kuchta,

I will retrace step 1-5 to make sure you have done everything correctly.

  1. Install Git, NodeJS v12.13.x LTS, and Python 2.7.14
  2. Go to Gameflip > Settings > Develop > Create API Key
  3. Use a notepad to keep all your info together. Copy and paste your secret API key and your API key into notepad for later use.
  4. In windows, search ‘node.js command prompt’ and open it.
  5. Paste into it ‘cd gfapi np install’.
  6. In your notepad, paste this
    SET GFAPI_KEY=<my_api_key>
    SET GFAPI_SECRET=<my_api_secret>
  7. Place the appropriate key into each line.
  8. Copy and paste that into node.js command prompt.
  9. Once you have done that, paste this into node.js command prompt:
    node src\samples\rl_listing.js

If you have done it right, there should be a listing uploaded on your profile! If you get stuck with any problems, please contact me.
