SMMRY
SMMRY API

Developers are able to implement SMMRY into applications that may require a summarization of a webpage or block of text. Developers will need a SMMRY API key in order to access the API.

API Key

To receive an API key, you'll need a Partner account.

Firstly get a free account here. Once registered head to the partner page and click upgrade. An API key will be generated automatically.

Modes

There are two active modes of the SMMRY API, Free and Full:

Free: A limit of 100 free API requests can be made daily, and each request must be at least 10 seconds apart. If a request was made too soon, the API will wait the required time before fulfilling the request.

Full: An unlimited amount of requests can be made with no artificial time limit in between. 1 credit costs $0.001, or a tenth of a cent. It costs approximately 1 credit per 500 characters returned by the API (only summarized content is counted). It costs an additional 8 credits if the article has not been previously submitted and cached by the algorithm, that way re-summarizing the same article is cheaper. When credit costs are being calculated, decimals are rounded upwards.

You can switch between modes via your Partner account page. (you can also find your API key listed there!)

Requests

The API request must be made to https://api.smmry.com. The returned response will be encoded in JSON.

Here are the possible parameters placed in the request URL.
    
• SM_API_KEY=N  Required, your API key.
• SM_URL=X  Optional, the webpage to summarize.
• SM_LENGTH=N  Optional, the number of sentences returned, default 7.
• SM_KEYWORD_COUNT=N  Optional, N the number of keywords to return.
• SM_WITH_BREAK  Optional, inserts the string [BREAK] between sentences.
• SM_WITH_ENCODE  Optional, converts HTML entities to their applicable chars.
• SM_IGNORE_LENGTH  Optional, returns summary regardless of quality or length.
• SM_QUOTE_AVOID  Optional, sentences with quotations will be excluded.
• SM_QUESTION_AVOID  Optional, sentences with question will be excluded.
• SM_EXCLAMATION_AVOID  Optional, sentences with exclamation marks will be excluded.
Here are the possible indexes of the array returned in a JSON array.
    
• sm_api_message  Contains notices, warnings, and error messages.
• sm_api_character_count  Contains the amount of characters returned.
• sm_api_title  Contains the title when available.
• sm_api_content  Contains the summary.
• sm_api_keyword_array  Contains top ranked keywords in descending order.
• sm_api_error  Contains error code.
The maximum number of sentences returned is 40. When using SM_WITH_BREAK, make sure to replace the [BREAK] strings with whatever you want to seperate each sentence ('/n', '<br>' etc). Also, make sure any webpage URL sent to summarize is accessible to SMMRY, pages requiring authentication won't do.

PHP Example - Summarize Text

Here is an example of PHP using cURL to summarize a block of text:
$text = "Your long text goes here...";

$ch = curl_init("http://api.smmry.com/&SM_API_KEY=X");
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, array("Expect:")); // See Note
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST, true); 
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, "sm_api_input=".$text);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION, true);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_CONNECTTIMEOUT, 20);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_TIMEOUT, 20);
$return = json_decode(curl_exec($ch), true);
curl_close($ch);
Note: The option CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER is required and should not be removed.

You're summary will be stored in $return['sm_api_content'].

PHP Example - Summarize External Webpage

Here is an example of PHP using cURL to summarize an external webpage:
$ch = curl_init("http://api.smmry.com/&SM_API_KEY=X&SM_URL=http://abc.com");
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION, true);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_CONNECTTIMEOUT,20);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_TIMEOUT,20);
$return = json_decode(curl_exec($ch), true);
curl_close($ch);
Note: The parameter &SM_URL= should always be at the end of the request url to avoid complications.

You're summary will be stored in $return['sm_api_content'].

Error Codes
0 - Internal server problem which isn't your fault
1 = Incorrect submission variables
2 - Intentional restriction (low credits/disabled API key/banned API key)
3 - Summarization error
