SEthesaurus API

This is the documentation of our SEthesaurus API. Given a software-specific term, it can return a list of its abbreviations and synonyms.

Usage of the API

This API returns a json file.

As one abbreviation may represent several full names, so there may be several items in the return file.

For each item, there are three attributes, its name, abbreviation list and synonym list.

Be aware that not all terms have abbreviations or synonyms.

For exmaple, you can get the abbreviations and synonyms of "javascript" by querying /api/javascript.
