SitePal offers 3 powerful APIs (Application Programming Interface), allowing advanced users or developers to integrate the character's behavior with their business logic. We also provide an embedded toolkit for using SitePal characters in your native code mobile app development.
Client API capabilities include:
Remotely manage your users' characters, media assets & settings, to achieve tight integration with your application's functionality. Create and upload audio, generate & download video, programmatically embed character content in your user's pages.
Server API capabilities include:
We offer the embedded toolkit for developers to use on mobile devices. EMT enables loading the characters locally within a native iOS or Android app, as well as (optionally) enabling users to select accessories, skin tone, etc.
Pre-recorded audio can be included with the app install and thus no server calls will be needed. Or, if your app is looking to use TTS it would call to the server to generate & stream the audio. Characters would be installed with the application and loaded locally in a webview pane in the native app. An api is provided to load the characters and control them.
Note that using the embedded toolkit is not required to get your SitePal characters to function on mobile. You can load the characters directly from your SitePal account if you like. But the embedded toolkit provides superior performance by eliminating the need for download.
