Metadata Endpoint

Use Case

Result objects are queried from our search endpoint and are then used to render result cards.

The metadata endpoint is useful if you don't want to pass along entire result objects through your messaging infrastructure.

Instead, you transfer only the result url, and on the recipient you parse out that url and query the metadata separately. This strategy has the added benefit of being more compatible with existing messaging clients. Clients who have not yet implemented our SDK simply receive a url in their regular message format.


Receives a url and returns back metadata if present.

Only urls found via our search endpoint are valid.

Endpoint: https://metadata.tapslash.com/
