Can I get a briefing as to how to login a user and use the Vanilla API given by kasper for iOS?

    The API can be used in any language that supports HTTP requests.

    Hi hgtonight, Thanks a lot for the reply.
    I am not looking for help with regard to iOS development. I exactly need the procedure to login to Vanilla forums using the API. I am unable to find the documentation so comprehensive with respect to login. If you can help me out, it will be really great.

    @AravindS see what it says in the docs

    You either login normal and use the service, or you use an api key.

    If you are doing server<>sever then you use the api credentials. You won't worry about sessions, becuase the session is abstracted. You would simply supply the username and email for the call.

    On the clientside (client<>server), then you wouldn't leak credentials. Instead the user would already be logged in, and the the api calls would be made only on the basic of their session.

    grep is your friend.
