Navigating the catalog

Find the right data for your needs.

Finding Specific Data

Each API has several endpoints. For example, if you take a look at the CoinGecko API here, you’ll see there’s data on markets, coins, and public companies. Each of the endpoints extracts different data from the API, thus allowing for more flexible requests.

With our Explore page, you can search both by the endpoint (currently called APIs on the site) or by data sources.

Searching by APIs

When you click on the APIs tab, you will see a list of endpoints available to you. You can filter them by Categories or Tags via the sidebar. The API search tab is perfect if you have an idea of the data you need.

API Details page

Once you click on any API in the catalog, you will find yourself on the API details page: This page contains information about the endpoint, including a description, columns returned when data is requested, and terms of service/legal disclaimers (if any). To get started using an API, click on "Try me" - this button will take you to the query builder.

Searching by Data Sources

When you click on the Data Sources tab, you will see a list of Data Sources available to you. The difference between a Data Source and API is that a Data Source has multiple APIs as part of it (also known as endpoints). You can filter Data Sources by Categories or Tags via the sidebar. This would be the ideal resource if you're unaware of the data available from different sources.
