### Configuration
Some configuration must be done before the application is ready for use. The first time `api.php` is called from a browser, it will create a new blank configuration file at `data/settings.toml`, if it doesn't already exist. See the `settings.default.toml` file in this repository for a list of configurable settings, but do **not** edit `settings.default.toml`! Instead, enter your configuration details into `data/settings.toml`, which overrides `settings.default.toml`. In particular, you'll probably want to change the settings under the `[database]` header - but ensure you give the entire file a careful read.
## API
The server-side API is accessed through `api.php`, and supports a number of GET parameters. The most important of these is the `action` parameter, Which determines what the API will do. The following values are supported:
### fetch-data
> Fetches air quality data from the system for a specific data type at a specific date and time.
Parameter | Type | Meaning
`datetime` | date/time | Required. Specifies the date and time for which readings are desired.
`reading_type` | string | Required. Specifies the type of reading desired.
### list-devices
> Fetches a list of devices currently in the system.
_No additional parameters are supported by this action._
## Notes
- Readings are taken every 6 minutes as standard.
