How to use RadarBox On-Demand API

Getting your free token

You get a free token with your business account, which will give you enough credit to play. You can find yours by navigating to your API Dashboard. Once you have it, open up the API documentation in a new tab so you can keep reading the how-to guide here

Step-by-step guide

1. Authenticate

Authentication

The steps below will show how easy it is to interact with the API. On the documentation page, you'll be able to scroll through the specs. Every call needs to be authenticated, so you need to put the token you wish to use in context. Simply insert the token in the designated form and hit "Save" button. From here on, all service calls will be associated with your account.

2. View all available services

In the left menu, you can find a list of the available services. Clicking on each one will take you to the endpoint details, where you can find information such as required parameters and the detailed format of the response.

3. Enter testing mode

Try out button

Click the “Try out” button, which will activate the test mode, and you will be able to submit live requests.

Try out screen

Once you’re in test mode, you will have the request spec on the center column and a text box with the payload of your request on the right. It will be pre-filled with test values which you will need to customize.

4. Sample test case

One of the simplest scenarios is trying to find out what the current position of a specific aircraft is.

Sample payload

The Image Above: Screenshot of Airspace Data from the API Documentation page

We have edited the sample payload stripping everything except our criteria: get the current position for the aircraft with tail number G-TTNG. After hitting the “Send Request” button, we should get a response within seconds. If all goes smoothly, we should see the status code of the request and the response payload popping up below the initial request.

Result

The documentation of the response fields should be visible on the left of the response payload, making it easy to interpret the data.

Implementing your own client

The interface shown above is great for prototyping your calls, but of course, you still need to implement your own API client. We will show how easy it is to have a full Python API SDK working with only a few lines of code.

You can download the web service client in your favorite language/framework - we currently support the most popular ones such as C#, Java, PHP, Python, Scala, Swift, and Javascript.

Simply select your option from one of the items in the dropdown menu, and the download will start automatically. Once complete, you need to extract the archive and open the contents in your favorite IDE.

README file

The Image Above: README.md Document

The README.md file contains valuable information and is tailored to the framework we're interested in. In this case, there are instructions on how to setup up your Python environment in order to be able to run the API client smoothly. There are also code snippets that you can copy/paste directly to your code.

Simple client

The Image Above: README.md Document

We have copied the snippets from the README file into our own file "liveflights-client.py" and we only needed to add two things: the authentication string (bearer token) and the search parameter (registration "G-TTNG"), same as the call we have previously created in the testing interface.

First run

After saving the file, we can open up a terminal and use Python to run the client we have just implemented.
