JavaScript SDK Reference

JavaScript SDK

The full power of our new framework lies within the JavaScript SDK. This SDK bridges between the user's browser and our RESTful APIs. As a developer, you use a simple, consistent JavaScript interface to interact with the fundamental LinkedIn data types (Profiles, Connections, People Search, etc). Under the hood, we translate your request into a REST call which we make on your behalf via Ajax. All the details of cross domain Ajax and OAuth 2 are abstracted away - you simply invoke a method and receive JSON in return.
