Consume from Client Side

ThinkGeo Cloud Time Zones does not allow anonymous users to access the API. Before working with these APIs, you will need to register with ThinkGeo Cloud and create your own clients. A new account come with two clients: NativeConfidential and JavaScript. See more details at here.

ThinkGeo Cloud provides standard RESTful APIs which can be consumed in any platform through any language. ThinkGeo also offers two prepackaged API clients to make it easier to integrate into .NET and JavaScript applications.

SDK for .NET

The SDK for .NET enables developers to build .NET applications that use the ThinkGeo Cloud services. The NuGet package can be found at ThinkGeo.Cloud.Client or you can install this package with PM by running the command: Install-Package ThinkGeo.Cloud.Client -Version VERSION_TO_BE_INSTALLED.

SDK for JavaScript

The SDK for JavaScript enables developers to directly access ThinkGeo Cloud services from JavaScript code running in browser. This SDK can be found at thinkgeocloudclient-js.
