By definition Horizon acts as the interface between stellar-core and applications, and apparently it needs access ... HTTP API that is published by stellar-core.

Is there a place where this API is documented?

  • imports data from the Core DB by a shared DB instance. See ingest package

Stellar-core’s HTTP interface is documented under the http-commands page in the software guide.
