ExampleEdit

Making any POST request is a multi-step process:

  1. Log in, via one of the methods described on API:Login .
  2. GET an edit/CSRF token as shown here API:Tokens
  3. Send a POST request, with the CSRF token, to return information for a stashed file.

The sample codes below cover these steps.
