Show a specific article from the Visual QuickStart Guides
This method returns a specific article from the Visual QuickStart Guides, based on the unique id of the article passed in on the URL. The returned article contains a reference to the book to which the article belongs.
The content of the article is presented in the 'content' property, and will default to a JSON representation of HTML. The default JSON representation formats HTML tags as:
'tag_name': [ array of child tag objects ]
This allows tags to be nested within other tags (see example below). The text of any tag is returned as a property with a name 'text'. Note that as tags are returned as arrays, there may be multiple 'text' properties to any single tag.
Section tags are slightly different, in that they point to the relevent section, with a URL property containing the API to call to retrieve the content of the section.
If you require the content of the article in either HTML or text-only format, use the 'content-fmt' parameter in the URL as described below, which will then return either HTML or text in the 'content' property.
NOTE: content returned when requested in HTML or text-only format will contain the complete content of the article, including any sections/subsections that might be referenced by the current article, in the appropriate format.
- content-fmt specify json, text or html to change the format of the content property (defaults to json)
- apikey key used to access the API
