Not given url to test connection with in API

I am looking to make an app that connects to a JSON file.

However, the only link available in the documentation is the following as an example:

GET https://bibles.org/v2/chapters/eng-KJVA:1Cor.2/verses.js

normally, i'd look for somewhere to put my API key that i registered with my app.

This link is just an example as someone would search for a specific verse, or key/value within the JSON.

can anyone help?

Hi Andy,

It looks like they use HTTP Basic auth, where the user-name is your API token; Their API documentation covers this pretty well, and should hopefully be enough to get you up and running.



yeah I was reading through that,

I am just not sure how to use PhP within my android app, I was a little confused by that.
