How it works

AI-powered SiteLint Audits Platform is a next-generation SaaS-type platform that allows you to set up audits on your site and gather all reports from the audits in one place. It works by relying on a small bit of JavaScript code that runs on your website. This code is activated when visitors arrive on your site. It runs a series of audits against the page, and then it generates a report on how well the site did. All works in real-time (on the fly).

This approach means that we aren’t crawling your website, but all audits are being performed directly on your site. Read more about Active Scanning Mode.

Step 2 – Create unique token

Now we need to create a token that will be used to identify your site. You can generate as many as you want tokens. Go to main menu Settings, then API Token, and use Create API Token from the action column.

Every token contains:

  • name – add any name for the token so you can easily identify to which site token is bound. It could be Development, Stage, or Production.
  • prefix – you can create any prefix, usually use words like dev, stage or production. This gives you a small hint about where the token is used without looking to the Platform.

Step 3 – Generate Audits Code

To connect your site with SiteLint Platform you need to generate now a small JavaScript code and put it on your site. Usually, it is located in the <head> section.

  1. Go to main menu Settings, then Api Token and use Generate Audits script from the action column.
  2. Copy generated script and insert into your site e.g. in the <head> section.
