grasshopper-api

HTTP wrapper for grasshopper-core. Grasshopper is a Data Management System (DMS) that makes working with application data easier for both administrators and developers.


A CMS for the people, a great experience for developers, users and customers. Use Grasshopper to drastically speed up development for distributed systems. Support your clients better.

By standardizing your development workflow, you can spend more time building your public facing applications and less time building backend systems, APIs and administrations.

Grasshopper focuses on user happiness, not just developer happiness. Grasshopper provides tools for everyone involved in a project, developers, content managers, clients and customers alike.

Using Grasshopper, developers get

  • An easy to use SDK, a ready to go REST API, built in concepts like user management and permissions, an open system that is both flexible and extensible.
  • High performance application stack built on Node.js. Hooks and events into the system to completely customize the handling of data and unlocking it's potential.
  • Consistent tools will that help you save time and delight your users. Using Grasshopper will elimiate much of the boring, boilerplate code that you have to write for every project.
  • The Grasshopper system can be run anywhere and has native cloud support that keeps growing. You can use services like Heroku or host on your own systems.

Using Grasshopper, managers get

  • A ready to go environment to start working right away. No more technology black holes where you have to wait until the end of the project to do your job.
  • Faster access to the tools you need. When developers don't have to write code to give you what you want, you will get it faster.
  • Intuitive and useful content management screens that can have any definition. Any type of content can be defined, organized and managed without a developer having to write any code.
  • Piece of mind knowing that you can increase client engagement by giving them something to work on sooner and give them less time to think about changes.

Grasshopper API is an HTTP wrapper of core designed to run on HTTP or HTTPS protocols. The API includes all of the functionality that is available in CORE. The API is required if you intend on using Grasshopper Admin.
