How to use

Register to get a free API key

You need to go to languagelayer and register to get a free API key.

Using Raw PHP/Laravel

You can use raw PHP/Laravel to grab the data. Here is the sample code (which can be found at the documentation section):

$// set API Access Key
$access_key = 'YOUR_ACCESS_KEY';

// set query text
$query = 'Hello my friend, how are you today?';

// Initialize CURL:
$ch = curl_init('http://api.languagelayer.com/detect?access_key='.$access_key.'&query='.$query.'');  
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);

// Store the data:
$json = curl_exec($ch);

// Decode JSON response and store array:
$detection_result = json_decode($json, true);

Using Python 3

// set endpoint and your access key
var access_key = 'YOUR_ACCESS_KEY';
var query = 'Hello my friend, how are you?';

// AJAX call
    url: 'http://api.languagelayer.com/detect?access_key=' + access_key + '&query=' + encodeURIComponent(query),   
    dataType: 'jsonp',
    success: function(json) {

    // Access and use your preferred validation result objects
