CreativeEngine APIs

Use the CreativeEngine APIs of the CreativeEditor SDK to implement highly customized workflows

The APIs of the CreativeEngine allow you to programmatically manipulate scenes inside the editor to automate workflows and customize the user experience.

Accessing the CreativeEngine APIs#

You can access the CreativeEngine APIs via the engine object and interact with the scene seen on screen.

The examples in the API Guides will use the headless CreativeEngine:

import 'https://cdn.img.ly/packages/imgly/cesdk-engine/1.9.0/index.js';
const config = {
baseURL: 'https://cdn.img.ly/packages/imgly/cesdk-engine/1.9.0/assets'
};
CreativeEngine.init(config).then((engine) => {
// Work with the engine...
engine.scene.create();
});
