Best Practices and Examples
CrownPeak provides Best Practices and code examples in this documentation for information about implementing and using API calls in your CrownPeak instance. The best practices and examples provide useful guidelines for using the API libraries; the CMS Template API Library enables template developers to create custom content editing, the Service Template API Library enables developers to access advanced features of the CMS, and the CMS Access API enables developers manage CMS assets and configurations through a set API calls. The CrownPeak API libraries are built on .NET 4.0 for C# development. The best practices and examples provide use cases and user stories to help developers work with the CMS to create forms, render collected data, and publish Web pages.
You can leverage the CMS development environment, or you can use the recommended Microsoft Visual Studio 2015 with the CrownPeak Add-in for Visual Studio or the CrownPeak Desktop Connection (CDC). Click here to access the API libraries.
