See how Silk uses its own API
As stated in the introduction, this documentation of the Silk API does not cover the full 100% of the requests and responses of the API. We tried to cover the most important parts of it, but as a developer, you may have special cases not described here.
Webkit (Chrome and Safari)
In Chrome and Safari, the web inspector is built in. Open it by hitting Ctrl-Alt-i on Windows/Linux or command-option-i on a Mac to see the web inspector panel. Navigate to the Network tab and then to XHR (at the bottom) to see only XHR requests that are made. If you now perform certain actions on Silk, for example do a query, you will see exactly what calls are made to the API. Every request is shown on a line, clicking it will reveal the details about this call (method, cookies, url, response, etc).
The web inspector on Chrome
In Firefox, bring up the web console with command+option+k on a Mac or control+shift+k on Windows/Linux. Now, only select the tab/button Net. Now you can go to Silk and perform certain actions, for example do a query. You will see exactly what calls are made to the API. Every request is shown on a line, clicking it will reveal the details about this call (method, cookies, url, response, etc).
