All SlideShare API end points will require https
We already supported SSL for all API endpoints, but to increase security for both our community users and developers we are making it mandatory to move to HTTPS endpoint for all the API calls. Any app that connects to SlideShare should make this change as soon as possible. We will disable http API support by the end of this year.
How do I start?
- Apply for an API key. This will be sent to you by e-mail instantly.
- Read the API documentation for complete information about the API calls available.
- See the resources section for useful links and implementation basics.
- Join the to keep in touch with the SlideShare developer community.
- featured on SlideShare about your cool application you built using SlideShare API and get your app
