The Workiva Developer API is specified using Swagger.

Generating client libraries using swagger-codegen

If you’d like to leverage a client library to talk to the Workiva Developer API, you can use the swagger-codegen project. Client libraries can be generated for more than 25 languages.

To generate a client library for the language of your choice, install and use swagger-codegen. You can install swagger-codegen with wget or Homebrew.

wget http://repo1.maven.org/maven2/io/swagger/swagger-codegen-cli/2.2.1/swagger-codegen-cli-2.2.1.jar -O swagger-codegen-cli.jar

or on macOS,

brew install swagger-codegen

Now, to generate client code for the language of your choice, for example, Java, here is an example usage of the code generator:

swagger-codegen generate -i swagger.json -l java -o /tmp/test/

The preceding command will output the generated client code to /tmp/test.

Using generated client code is language specific. Consult the README and usage examples of the generated code.
