API


Places

To generate all horoscopes you must first retrieve the place_id. It represents a geographical place on earth where on the astrological calculations are based.

Basic Flow

You can use the api/places endpoint but also by latitude, longitude and radius. You can perform AJAX-requests to the api/places/latlong endpoint that will return the top 10 places closest related to the input. The radius is maximized to 15 kilometers. Then the end-user selects the place where (s)he was born from the list. The associated id is the place_id you will need to use in subsequent requests to calculate the horoscopes.
