Calling the API publicly


Firstly, can I say that I think Morph is a really cool tool. :wolf: There’s one thing I’d appreciate the benefit of someone’s wisdom on though.

I’d like to use the output of a scraper in a D3 (JavaScript) visualisation for a website I’m making. To do that, I’d be pulling in JSON output from the API - but would need to include the API key in my code.

I’ll readily admit to not having a web development background, but having a Google around hasn’t suggested any obvious way of navigating this kind of issue.

So I have two questions:

  1. Can anyone suggest a good workaround for this?
  2. ( team) Is the reason that you ask us to keep our API key private so that you can ensure that no one user is making too great demands on resources? Are there other reasons why it’s important to keep our API key private?



Hi @philipnye :wave: here’s what you want:


Great, thank you @henare!
