Sitefinity API Remote Access

Hi,
I need to write a small utility program in C# for a client that will run his/her desktop.  How do I access Sitefinity details from this utility program (Remote Access).  I dont think I can use the fluent API? Any options?  Is there any documentation around this?

Thanks

Arjuna,

You've got quite a few options, actually. You could use Sitefinity's RESTful WCF Services, roll your own with a custom Web API or create custom services that tie right in to your Sitefinity installation.

The Fluent API is going to be an option for actually writing the service your desktop application connects to, not really for communicating with Sitefinity remotely.
