Use the power of our REST API to bring your back end data to DataPocket

Updated over a week ago

·Introduction

Welcome to DataPocket API, the first collaborative backend data tool. DataPocket allows designers and product managers to use and share live data in real-time in one place - helping them design up to 80 times faster.

DataPocket's mission is to make design easier for everyone, anywhere.

DataPocket connects the major eCommerce platforms. However, If you are managing data sources from ERPs or CMS with a module not supported by DataPocket, our API will be your solution. Enabling you to connect and synchronize any sort of data source to DataPocket.

·What can I do with the DataPocket API?

The DataPocket API supports Add, Update and Delete a data source to interact with Adobe Suite, Adobe Express, Figma, and Canva. You will then be able to use your data (images and texts) in your designs on any of these platforms, at any time, always synchronized.
