Introduction to Kongregate APIs
The Kongregate Client-side API
The Kongregate API Object
Throughout the API documentation, you will see references to the "Kongregate" object or the "Kongregate API" object. In order to keep the API simple, function names, arguments, and return values are the same no matter what language is being used. The main difference when using a different language is how you go about obtaining the main Kongregate API object.
This is explained further in the language-specific documentation, but just keep in mind that when you see a variable named
kongregate or a reference to a "Kongregate" object or "Kongregate API" object you will need to substitute in the appropriate language-specific construct. It can be useful to create your own
kongregate variable which references the API so that your code exactly matches the documentation.
The Kongregate Server-side JSON API
In addition to client-side links, Kongregate offers a server-side JSON API to provide for secure communication and submissions between your game's server and Kongregate. These calls are used for verifying purchases and submitting high scores, as well as looking up user information and getting badge feeds.
