Access to PW API from custom script

In my PW app I have now a php script which caters to the upload of files.

It does not directly belong to the UI and therefore I did not store it in the templates folder, but in a custom folder.

My question is: how do I get access from this script to the Pw API? Can I leave it in the custom folder?

It just so happens that you can bootstrap processwire into scripts. I have used this several times and it is just one of the many awesome features.

https://processwire.com/api/include/

Normally, I house specials scripts outside the template folder (like you have done) and just include processwire's index like:

<?php include("/path/to/processwire/index.php");  ?>
