Eaternity Database (EDB) API

The Eaternity Database API is a Web Service that calculates the Climate Score (CO₂eq), the Vita Score and other environmental footprints of recipes, restaurants and ingredients dynamically. It includes daily changing information on origin, seasonality and other factors in the calculation (more Informations on the indicators). It further delivers reports with sophisticated and easy to understand statistics, graphs and analysis (more Informations on the reports).

The Eaternity Database API is a RESTful interface, providing programmatic access to Eaternity’s calculation algorithms, indicator systems and data collections. It provides predictable URLs for accessing resources, and uses built-in HTTP features to receive commands (GET, POST, PUT, DELETE) and return responses.

Terms & Conditions

By accessing the APIs, you accept the Eaternity’s Terms & Conditions. If You are using the APIs on behalf of an entity, you represent and warrant that you have authority to bind that entity to the Terms & Conditions and by accepting the Terms, you are doing so on behalf of that entity.

Technical Specifications

Authentication

Each client gets his own unique API key, which he needs to provide to be able to talk to the Eaternity Database API. This API key is only given to clients after we have signed a contract.

To authenticate a request, clients should use the HTTPS Basic Authentication and pass the API key as the username, and an empty password. Note that the API only accepts secure connections via HTTPS with SNI (Server Name Indication). The servername is co2.eaternity.ch. Most HTTP request utilities and libraries that allow to specify a username and password will handle proper encoding of the header for you.

You can give it a try connecting to our API with this Testing API-Key (base64 encoded) on our Test-Server (test.eaternity.ch): aDRjSzR0SDBOT2c3NUhqZkszMzlLbE9scGEzOWZKenhYdw==

Try downloading the file avocado.json file and request our service with curl:

curl -i -X POST --data-binary @avocado.json --header 'authorization: Basic aDRjSzR0SDBOT2c3NUhqZkszMzlLbE9scGEzOWZKenhYdw==' --header 'Content-Type: application/json' 'https://test.eaternity.ch/api/recipes?transient=true&full-resource=true&test=random'

We can recommend using Postman for testing.

For this purpose we provide some sample request in a public Postman collection, that you find here: https://www.postman.com/eaternity/workspace/eaternity-public-api

Or you can check out the examples below.

Language

The API is designed such that one request may contain information about an object (e.g. a recipe or a supply) in multiple languages. Every JSON field which is subject to localization has a language array as value. One language object looks like this:

{ "language": "de", "value": "Kürbisrisotto" }

Example of recipe title language array:

"titles": [ { "language": "de", "value": "Kürbisrisotto" }, { "language": "en", "value": "Pumpkin Risotto" }]

The language field must contain one of the ISO 639-1 alpha-2 codes as a descriptor for the language you use.

Id Generation

The id’s of recipes, kitchens and supplies can be generated in two different ways. The first possibility is to create a new resource through a POST to the API, then the id is generated by Eaternity. The second possibility is to create a new resource through a PUT, providing your own id in the URL itself (e.g. /recipes/298734), then your id is used on our servers. This is the recommended approach, as it helps us coordinating your requests. The id can be any alphanumeric value following this regular expression: [-a-zA-Z0-9+&@#/%?=~|!:,.;]*[-a-zA-Z0-9+&@#/%=~|] (the allowed characters for a HTTP URL).

Notes On The Format

The API accepts JSON in requests. It returns JSON in all of its responses, including errors. Only the UTF-8 character encoding is supported for both requests and responses.

URL Parameters

Parameters Type Description
transient boolean Resources with the transient=true flag will not be saved. This is important as we do not want to include all of your recipes in our monthly summary. For example if you submit a sub-recipe, to check its co2-value, it should not be included in the statistics.
full-resource boolean Specifies whether our JSON answer will contain all fields (except the additional indicators) or a short answer. Default: false. Works recipes and supplies. This helps to save bandwidth for slow connections.
indicators boolean Specifies wether the JSON answer will contain the additional indicator fields. Default: false. Works for recipes, ingredients, and supplies. This helps to save bandwidth for slow connections and the response is generally faster.
test string Only for testing purposes. Values: random or empty. If test=random is set, all ingredients will be randomly linked to life cycle assessments (the results will be wrong!), no 601 error will occur and all the calculation results are incorrect. We provide this functionality so that api clients can test receiving a complete response. By default we need to put in manual labor to have it give back correct values, which takes time. Every ingredient has to be linked to a corresponding data field in our database, for any environmental values to be calculated.

SSL

All requests need to be encrypted through SSL. Please make sure to whitelist the latest SSL certificate from Eaternity.

You can find the latest certificates by accessing the specific domain.

We recommend to whitelist the cloudflare root certificate “cloudflare_origin_rsa.pem”, as follows all our domains and any renewal will be secured (test.eaternity.ch and co2.eaternity.ch). Be advised that if you prefer whitelisting our individual domain names (e.g.: “cloudflare-eaternity.ch-2017.crt”), you will have to renew it each year in time, to not interrupt your service.

Use Server Name Indication (SNI)

Since Eaternity uses distributed Google servers, the IP-address of the service changes and are shared between different applications.

To make SSL work for the Eaternity Database API, the desired hostname (co2.eaternity.ch) needs to be specified with every request according to the SNI-Speficiation. An example request to our service including SNI, using the -servername argument is as follows:

openssl s_client -connect co2.eaternity.ch:443 -servername eaternity.ch

Server Responses

A successful request will be prompted with either 200 - Success or 204 - No Content.

Sadly, sometimes requests to the API are not successful. Failures can occur for a wide range of reasons. In all cases, the API returns an HTTP Status Code that indicates the nature of the failure (below), with a response body in JSON format containing additional information.

  • 200 Success - If a resource was requested, it will be available at the top level of the response body.

  • 201 Created - The request was successful and a resource was created. The Location Header field indicates the URI the resource can be found.

  • 204 No Content - The request was successful and the body intentionally contains no data.

  • 400 Bad request - This occurs when the request was not sent according to the documentation. Can be either the JSON format or the content. Check the documentation and the syntax of your request and try again.

  • 401 No authorization - A valid API key was not provided with the request, so the API could not associate a client with the request. You might wish to try again and check if the key is base64 encoded.

  • 403 Forbidden - The Kitchen is not authorized to calculate environmental values of recipes. Only users that pay for the “Eaternity License” are allowed to do so. Please contact Eaternity to get an up-to-date pricing.

  • 404 Not found - Either the request method and path supplied do not specify a known action in the API, or the object specified by the request does not exist.

  • 405 Method not allowed - When the resource exists but the HTTP method verb is not allowed on this resource.

  • 500 Server error - Just try again.

  • 601 Manual matching missing - An ingredient was requested, whose id is not yet manually matched into the Eaternity Database. Retry once a day.

  • 602 No automatic match found - At least one ingredient name could not get automatically matched into the Eaternity Database. Retry once a day or try with a different ingredient name.

  • 610 Missing required property - A required resource property was not given in the request. Please provide the required field.

  • 611 Wrong property value - A resource property was not provided according to the documentation. Either the given format is wrong or the value doesn’t match to the given options. Usually not dependent on the implementation but on the user input.

  • apiResponseBlocked=1 We are currently linking the products that you sent us with our scientific data set. In order to avoid sending you incomplete results during that process, we are temporarily withholding those incomplete results. We re-evaluate this status once per month. If you want to lift that restriction early, please email us at info@eaternity.ch

Batch Operations on Recipe Resources

The full-resource url parameter is supported here as well, but just for the whole request itself and not on single recipes. The transient parameter can be set selectively on single recipes inside the batch.

The message in the response provides more details about the failure of individual recipes. Batch operations do not support an unlimited number of recipes. If a request fails repeatedly, please consider reducing the number of recipes submitted.

Create or update a batch of recipes
POST/recipes/batch

Create or update a batch of recipes at once. If a recipe id is provided, the recipe is either created with this id or the existing recipe is overwritten. The status code tells the difference.

The kitchen-id may be used to store the recipe into a specific kitchen.

The additional integer request-id field enables you to track back the recipes you sent in case you don’t want to use your own id’s. Either a request id or a recipe id is required. The request-id differs from the recipe id and has just the lifetime of a single request (not stored on Eaternity’s end).

Create a batch of supplies
POST/supplies/batch

Creat or update a batch of supplies at once. If a supply id is provided, the supply is either created with this id or the existing supply is overwritten. The status code tells the difference. The full-resource and indicators parameters are supported.

The additional request-id field enables you to track back the supply you sent in case you don’t want to use your own id. Either a request id or a recipe id is required. The request-id differs from the supply id and has just the lifetime of a single request (not stored on Eaternity’s end).

Product Resources for Retail

The Product resourcres are directed towards users that have limited information about a single retail food product’s composition and want to calculate indicators based on the mandatory ingredient and nutrients declaration on its packaging. We only recommend using the Product Resources in tight coordination with the team at Eaternity as the calculations require additional supervision from our team. We process it and build a recipe-like structure so we can serve the usual indicators.
