Simple File Upload’s API Documentation
Authentication and Requests

We use standard HTTP Authentication over HTTPS to authorize your requests. First you'll need to sign up and then generate a new API key in your account. Once you have an API key, you can generate a request to the server like so:

wget -qO /dev/stdout \
--user "{{your token}}" \
--password "{{your secret}}" \
https://app.simplefileupload.com/api/v1/teams
