Each API call is documented (see the full API list), with definitions given for HTTP request parameters and JSON response fields, followed by an example:
- The JSON response fields are each followed by one of S for string, A for array, O for object, N for number or B for boolean.
- In the examples, the Ardor node is represented as localhost and requests and responses are formatted for easy reading; line breaks and spaces are not actually used except in some parameter values. All requests are in URL format which implies the HTTP GET method. When GET is allowed, the URL can be entered into a browser URL field but proper URL encoding is usually required (e.g., spaces in a parameter value must be replaced by + or %20). Otherwise, the URL should be used as a guide to preparing an HTTP POST request using cURL, for example.
