The official introduction to the APIs for rippled is located on the Dev Portal:

http://dev.ripple.com/rippled-apis.html

However, the wiki still has the most up-to-date information regarding the following:

  • Ledger Format - The exact format of entries in the globally-shared Ripple ledger
  • Transaction Format - The exact format of all types of transactions that modify the Ripple ledger
  • JSON Messages - Formatting for API calls (mostly deprecated, but still the main source of info for admin commands)

For help installing and running rippled, see rippled.

For higher-level access to Ripple, consider:

  • Ripple-REST - RESTful API access with most of the features of Ripple and less complication
  • ripple-lib - Javascript client library and reference implementation for using the rippled WebSocket API.
