What's the deal with the REST api for QC?

I was excited to read about a QC rest API that lets you pass in strategies and have them be backtested on QCs servers, before having the results returned to you. 

I saw this rest API mentioned at the following links:

https://www.quantconnect.com/forum/discussion/284/backtesting-with-a-rest-api/p1https://www.quantconnect.com/forum/discussion/1018/compile-using-rest-apihttps://github.com/ryandhall/QCRestAPI

and it all sounded quite exciting. sadly, all the mentions of the rest api seemed to point to the following page as a central source of documentation and to describe how to use the REST API:

https://www.quantconnect.com/api/v2/

this page is bizarely layed out and has no information or links to an information that i can find. in fact it seems half made.  

So what's the deal? is this rest api dead? i don't get why i can't find any real explanations of it being deprectaed or alternatives to it/why the link to the REST API documentation on QC is so broken/unproffesional looking, am i missing something here??

Update Backtest








We have been working on our documentation, since we want to make the learning experience in QuantConnect more tutorial driven. We didn't get to the part on Rest API yet.
However, you can look into it in the open-source project. Here is the project: Lean/Api.
For examples, there are the tests we run to be sure it is working: ApiTests.
