SocialEngine REST API Plugin

Created by: SocialEngineAddOns
Compatibility: SocialEngine PHP 4.2.0 - 4.9.9


  • Can I use my website's APIs concurrently on multiple clients like iOS application, Android application, a stand-alone web application, etc?

    Yes. The 'API Consumers' section in the Admin Panel of this plugin enables you to create multiple API clients with their own API Consumer Key and and API Consumer Secret credentials.
  • I want to extend these APIs for other modules (other 3rd-party plugins) that are used on my website. Is this possible? If yes, then how?

    Yes, this is possible. To extend these APIs for other modules / plugins, please follow the 'Guidelines for extending APIs to other modules' from 'Global Settings' of this plugin. These APIs are easy to extend, and you may contact the developer of that module for this.
  • What are the limitations of this API?

    The API currently does not support the subscription step in signup. Work on this is planned in the next upgrade. If there is a 3rd-party plugin installed on your website that alters the default signup process of SocialEngine, then those alterations will not be supported in the signup API. The API currently does not support payments.
  • When will you be releasing APIs for other SocialEngineAddOns plugins?

    We have already begun work on building APIs for other SocialEngineAddOns plugins, and will soon be sharing with you a roadmap for release of those APIs. If you're a client of a SocialEngineAddOns plugin, and have this REST API Plugin too, then that plugin's API release upgrade will be available to you for Free.
  • Is this easy to install?

    Yes, absolutely! This plugin will install seamlessly on your SocialEngine with the one click Package installation feature.
  • What will my plugin download contain?

    The plugin download will be a zipped file, which upon extraction will give the plugin package tar file, the license file, and the installation instructions file.
  • Is this a stand-alone plugin?

    Yes, no other plugins are required to run this plugin.
  • I want to customize this plugin according to the offerings and design of my site. Can you help me?

    Yes, please contact us with your customization requirements.

    I have started my SE4 site with plugins and mobile apps from another provider. That provider provided me excellent technical support. However, their inferior plugins were hampering my growth. So, I started researching and looking for alternative SE4 plugin providers. After months of discussion with several companies I choose socialengineaddons to provide all plugins and mobile apps for my site.

    I re-launched my site with plugins from socialengineaddons and my members started complementing and loving the new features and functionalities.

    I can confidently say my site is 100% SEAO powered site. Yes, I said SEAO powered. I have bought EVERY plugin, module, add-on, theme and widget that SEAO has.

    As SEAO's devoted customers I can HIGHLY RECOMMEND to anyone looking for the best developer in SE community to try SEAO. You will not regret your decision!

    If you are looking for mobile apps for SE or you want to build your own mobile apps, SocialEngine REST API Plugin is the best plugin to help you bring your dream to reality!

    We have been using SEAddOns for our social network site for a few years now with great success. A few months back (April) we decided to contact them about their Mobile App Development service which we have been very pleased with.

    Their team have been friendly and helpful and their support has been quick and to-the-point. They are continuously keeping the app up to date with security updates and the odd minor bug fixes. They have been open to suggestions for additional feature ideas for the app and often reach out for feedback.

    With setting the app up, their great customer support and their management of the app; we are very pleased with their overall service.

    I am what you would call an informed consumer. I usually don't patronize a business without doing research or becoming acutely aware of their practice. This also reigns true for Social Engine AddOns (SEAO). over seven years ago when I first tried Social Engine (SE) I had the most difficult time finding a reputable developer to work on my site or buy plugins, modules or themes to power my site from. Then I came across SEAO and after doing some research and then actually contacting them before my purchase did I get my first clue of their commitment to detail and excellence.

    They definitely have a finger on the pulse of consumer satisfaction and over the years as they have grown and hired more staff, the entire staff including the new ones have the same level of commitment. That commitment affects the culture of a place and everyone connected is usually impacted. Thankful for us their culture is saturated in customer service, product knowledge, patience, skilled technicians and a resounding devotion to producing quality products and faithfully keeping those products updated to the latest industry standards.

    Yesterday I bought some new products just released to add to my SEAO powered site. Yes, I said SEAO powered. I have bought EVERY plugin, module, add-on, theme and widget that SEAO creates. I ONLY let them work on my site and they are the most skilled, technically sound and efficient techies i've ever met. They know their stuff. It's no surprise why they are the "TOP DEVELOPERS" on this SE platform.

    As perhaps one of SE's biggest customers and certainly SEAO's devoted customers I can HIGHLY RECOMMEND to anyone looking for the best developer in SE community to try SEAO. You will not regret your decision it will began the most valuable relationship you can have while building your SE community. I wish you guys much success.

    Thanks SEAO, you guys have done it again and you REALLY ROCK!!!! We have one of the fastest, most beautiful and dependable sites on the web because of you and your staff. Thank you!

    This is the most important widget for all SE communities. Of course by SEAO.

    Mobile apps used with the new Rest API are totally awesome!! We were waiting for this plugin for a long time.

    Thanks to Socialengineaddons!!!
