About OKAPI

OKAPI

OKAPI is a publically available API for "National Opencaching" sites.

  • It provides OC site with a set of useful well-documented API methods,
  • Allows external developers to easily read public Opencaching data,
  • Allows read and write private (user-related) data with OAuth Authentication.

The project has grown to become a standard and common API for all National Opencaching.xx sites.

OKAPI is an integral part of the Opencaching-PL code fork, i.e. an OCPL site will run properly only with OKAPI installed. For the Opencaching-DE code fork, OKAPI is an optional plugin - all other services of the site will run independently from OKAPI.
