- Mimeo User Account(s) - To use Mimeo start to finish you will need 3 separate accounts. developer area, sandbox API, and live API.
- Document Building kinlane-productions2 products are designed as documents. You can assemble one or many print files into a final Mimeo document. The document contains all the final print qualities, such as binding, paper, color, etc.
Start by signing up as a Mimeo.com developer, then setup your sandbox environment. Then login and build the poster you wish to see using Mimeo.com poster builder. When done you right click on the document and grab the product id for your poster. Then you can start making calls against the API to build new posters using that document and any new PDF file. Too much! I should be saying:
Sign up for developer key, make call against this web service with the size of poster and the URL of PDF you wish to print. You can get proof quote, shipping options, and when ready add address and credit card info to actually order a poster. My first response is already too long, and you actually haven't even reached the actual goal of printing a poster with an API? My second response is short and achieves the desired goal.Last week I set out to fix this. I was losing too many simple requests to print posters. So I set out to add a layer to the Mimeo Connect API (with the resources I have), that abstracts away the complexities of print. I don't want a user to have to think about Mimeo accounts or building documents. I want them to only think about achieving integration with their application. So using Mashape, I'm building simple poster printing API that delivers the desired results. I will be posting more information this week, as it is ready.
