Working with Octopart's Supply Data

Modified on Tue, 28 Mar 2023 at 12:42 PM

The supply side of our API provides data on electronic components such as the latest offers, technical specifications, and lifecycle data. To access it you will need to have signed up for a Nexar account and have an application with the supply scope if you don't please see our other introductory articles before continuing. Another option to get started would be to follow our supply quickstart guide.

Important Links:

  • Nexar Portal - for managing your account, applications, usage limits, and testing queries
  • Banana Cake Pop - our IDE (integrated development environment), which allows you to develop and save queries. It also includes our schema
  • Voyager - a visual representation of our API's schema and how it all links together

Our NexarDeveloper GitHub is home to many of our examples in varying languages such as javascript or python. A good starting point would be our simple console app that will let you search for a specific MPN (manufacturer part number) and print the results. Alternatively, if you work in Excel then we have our Excel Add-in.
