Get Started

  1. Sign up for a Factual API key. Record your OAuth Key and Secret but DO NOT share them with anyone.
  2. Download and install a Factual API driver for the language you want to use. We have the following drivers available*:
  3. Find the table ID for the data you want to work with in our data docs.
  4. Dig into our tutorials or basic API docs to get oriented.
  5. Go to http://support.factual.com if you run into trouble.

*If we don’t have a driver for the language you are working with, check out the support forums. It’s often the case that someone in the community has already worked with the same language.
