How to Generate an API Key

To access the API, you'll need to generate a personal API key. This key grants you the same permissions as if you were logged in to your ActiveCalculator account, so it's crucial to keep it secure and avoid sharing it with others.

Step 1: Access Your ActiveCalculator Settings

  1. Log in to your ActiveCalculator account at app.activecalculator.com.
  2. Click on your profile icon located in the top-right corner of the application.

⚠️ Important: For security reasons, you won't be able to view the API key again after this point. If you lose the key, you'll need to generate a new one.

Tips and Best Practices:

  • Keep your API key confidential and avoid sharing it with anyone.
  • If you suspect that your API key has been compromised, revoke it immediately and generate a new one.
  • Use environment variables or secure configuration files to store your API key in your application's codebase, rather than hardcoding it.

By following these steps, you'll be able to generate an API key for your ActiveCalculator workspace and start leveraging the power of its API to enhance your own applications.

Remember, anyone who has access to your API key has full control over your ActiveCalculator account, so it's essential to prioritize the security of your key at all times.
