Some who wish to explore and learn more about the RightScale API by taking advantage of the API Examples section of the guide may not have immediate access to a Linux server. Because the bulk of the examples use curl to issue HTTP requests from a basic Linux box, the outline below can help you get started in the cloud using the RightScale API.
API examples are designed to be used in parallel with the API 1.5 online reference information. We strongly recommend you use the online reference information at all phases of your learning curve.
Note: If you have little to no experience with Linux, Ruby or Windows PowerShell, see the RS APEye Tool documentation that uses the Postman plugin to Google Chrome for an easy to use, more visual interface to our API.
