using the api

I'm trying to figure out how to make use of the api in my react app.  what I want to do is to allow the user to access the list of board games, and to be able to select one to look at its details (i.e. image, description, and price).  How would I do this?  Also, if it has something to do with the client id, i don't know how to get back to that information.

Hey there! I'm glad you're interested! All you got to do is sign up for an app client_id by going here: https://www.boardgameatlas.com/api/docs/apps and you'll be able to access everything!

If you're asking more generally on how to develop using react and such, you can send me a message and I can work with you on a more granular implementation level. Otherwise have fun and let me know if you need any additional support!

I have already signed up for an app client_id.  I'm wanting to know how to implement the api.

Great that's a good first start. I'm not sure where your development skill level is but if you're familiar with npm, I'd suggest installing axios and using that to do the GET / POST requests. If that's not enough direction send me an email at trent@boardgameatlas.com and I can walk you through some of the basics.
