WEKA REST API and equivalent CLI commands

Explore the tasks you can program using the WEKA REST API, equivalent CLI commands, and the related information to learn the theory.

To maximize your success with the REST API, it's essential to familiarize yourself with the comprehensive documentation. This valuable resource provides in-depth insights into the subject matter. Moreover, each REST API method corresponds to a CLI command. Additionally, many parameters accessible through the CLI are equally accessible when using the REST API. Run the CLI command help for details. This ensures a smooth and consistent experience across both interfaces.
