API Consumption: Best Practices Featured


Published on , Updated on

To help developers get the very best out of the AdultWork.com API, we have written this small blog that briefly details some of the good practices that should be followed when it comes to consuming the API.

One of the most common implementations that the API lends itself to is a Profile Listings directory-type application or website. The two main API endpoints that developers would use are /search/searchProfiles and /profile/getProfileDetails.

If a developer chooses to import and cache API data on their own servers we would highly recommend that the getProfileDetails endpoint is only requested on demand - when the end-user chooses to view more information for a specific profile. The response data from the API should be cached with a TTL (Time To Live) and any subsequent end-user requests for that specific profile should then be served from the developer's local cache until the TTL expires and a new getProfileDetails API request is required.

Caching data from the searchProfiles endpoint should be implemented with the ProfilesPerPage request property set to its maximum of 100, and with other criteria such as IsEscort set to true. The more criteria a developer specifies, the faster the API will respond.

Developers should be aware that caching data from the AdultWork API for long periods of time will likely result in the data being out of date or irrelevant. Profiles are added, removed and modified on the AdultWork.com Platform 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, so this is something to bear in mind when deciding the duration of a cache's TTL.

 

All endpoints support HTTPS only

It is no longer possible to connect to any endpoints, platform or API using http://.  All calls must now use https://.

Published on , Updated on

We have added some examples to our Unified Login pages to demonstrate how to deploy your own "Buy with AdultWork.com Credits" button. The examples show you how a user can subscribe to a private gallery, view a movie or simply buy AdultWork.com credits for later use.

With this set of updated platform features you can allow your users to buy and spend their AdultWork.com Credits without ever having to leave your site.

Check out the Unified Login now to see what you can implement today.

If you want to see it in action, hit up one of the My Adult Sites - choose Random Example - and look for someone with a private gallery or movie library, (e.g. KinkyDirtyBitch's)

New API features


Published on , Updated on

We've recently launched some great new end points for our API.  Following the guidelines within our updated API Reference it is now possible for developers to include Top Lists, Field Reports, Blogs, Pictures and Movies in their own applications.

Use Top Lists and Field Reports to create your own punter guide complete with ranking list and detailed reviews. Or use Blogs to create the new Tumblr for Adults.

Always wanted to have you own tube site?  Use our new Movies API to build a great tube site for any niche you like and earn money with our referral program.

Check out our updated API Reference and start developing something great today.  If you have a business proposal or joint development idea, feel free to suggest it.

 

AdultWork.com members can rest assured that their content and sales income is managed in exactly the same way as with the main AdultWork.com Site.  Nothing in the Developers Area or API works any differently to the main site.  E.G. someone views a your movie on a developer site - the client pays the price you set and you receive the same.  All that happens is that the developer will get a referring income when referring new customers.

Announcing My Adult Site


Published on , Updated on

Service providers on AdultWork.com can now register a custom domain name and use one of our modern website templates to launch profiles on the open web.

Not only will profiles be discoverable on AdultWork.com: with a website, profiles will be integrated into one of our managed templates and deployed for discovery through search engines.

Existing profiles stay the same and nothing on AdultWork.com has to change, but providers can benefit from the bonus of having an independent site of their own. There is no extra work required to manage a second page: AdultWork.com profile changes are reflected on custom sites in minutes.

Newly released is our “Buy with AdultWork.com Credits” feature, which allows sales of Private Gallery images and Movie Clips through the AdultWork.com credits system. Leveraging our web platform through the built-in widgets customers can complete purchases through AdultWork.com without having to navigate to the main website – buying credits and even registration for a new account can be completed in the purchasing flow. Sites can pay for themselves through sales of content under the providers’ control.

The templates on offer are designed to respond to the device they are viewed on and look great on mobiles and tablet screens up to desktop monitors. There are ten templates currently available, each in a number of coloured themes, and all of the templates offered by AdultWork.com Developers are free so switching between templates and themes can be done at any time. The available AdultWork.com Developers templates will always be free and when updates are released these will automatically upgrade deployed sites.

Registration of a selection of top-level domains is available: the ubiquitous .com and .co.uk offer a professional finish to any site, while .me.uk and .name add a personal touch. Various country codes (.uk, .nl, .de) are available with the potential boosts to search engine ranking that geographic targeting can provide. Both premium adult entertainment domains are available, so new sites can be launched with the unique flair of the .sexy or .xxx domains.

AdultWork.com members who have already bought a website can upgrade to a custom domain through the dashboard on the AdultWork.com Developers site.
