How do I access the Changefeed API?

Changefeed is fully powered by a GraphQL API, accessible at https://changefeed.app/graphql.

Authentication

To read private data or write any data, you need to authenticate with a personal access token. You can generate personal access tokens in your user settings.

Note that personal access tokens give full access to your account! Store them securely and do not share them with anyone.

You then have to pass this personal access token in the Authorization header as a bearer token:

Authorization: Bearer <YOUR_TOKEN_HERE>

If you do not authorize correctly, your request will be treated as unauthenticated. The easiest way to check if you are authorized is to query for the authenticated user data (called the "viewer"):

{
viewer {
name
}
}

Documentation

For now, the only documentation for the API is exploring the schema with the GraphQL Playground at https://changefeed.app/graphql (click the green "Schema" button on the left edge).

If you have any specific questions on how to achieve certain tasks, feel free to ping us directly at hi@changefeed.app, we would be happy to help!
