Announcing the new documentation center

Karthik Bhaskara

Sr. Software Engineer

To bring the best possible user experience to developers, we constantly iterate on our products. In the last few months, we have revealed a redesigned dashboard, added live and test modes to the Smartcar authorization flow, and shipped a new version of our JavaScript SDK.

Today, we’re proud to present a revamped documentation center. With its new features, the doc center will help you quickly and easily integrate Smartcar’s API into your application.

Smartcar is proud to present the new doc center!

So, let’s have a look at what’s new:

Demo App

We offer a demo app on the landing page, called Test Drive. The Test Drive app shows you how our platform works. Without writing any code, you can run the Test Drive app in your terminal and launch our demo in your browser.

Getting Started Guide

Our Getting Started Guide gets you up and running with Smartcar. In a step-by-step format, this guide explains how you can make your first request to our API. It’s available in Node, Python, and Java.

Integration Guides

If you want to build a full-fledged application, our Integration Guides show you how. Whether you prefer building single-page apps with React, mobile apps on iOS or Android, or server-side rendered apps with Express — we have the right Integration Guide for you.

And finally…

The new doc center also offers guides on more nuanced aspects of our platform. These guides will tell you which architectures we support, how you can test your app, how we handle errors, and which security best practices we advise you to follow.

Last but not least, our API reference has remained the same. If you’ve seen our old docs before, you will encounter some familiar elements here.

That’s it! We hope you’ll enjoy browsing the new doc center. And as always, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us with any questions or feedback!
