The new Cacoo SDK Edition API allows developers to seamlessly integrate the Cacoo platform into third-party applications. Third-party app users are not required to register for Cacoo accounts and Cacoo loading and menu logos can be removed or replaced. The primary functionality of the API includes:

  • Diagrams - Create, edit, copy and delete diagrams. Retrieve diagram details and display diagram images.
  • Sharing - Share diagrams without the need for app users to register for a Cacoo account.
  • Commenting - Add and refer comments on a diagram.
  • oEmbed - Allows embedding of diagrams into other webpages using oEmbed method.

The Cacoo SDK Edition is software that is separate from the Cacoo.com website, requires installation on a server and includes the new Cacoo SDK Edition API.

There is also an ASP API version (Cacoo.com) which is somewhat limited compared to the Cacoo SDK Edition. However, the standard Cacoo API does not require installation of software on a server.
