Sorry I can not fully answer your question but I will add some background info and links to archived help articles.

It looks like popcorn is no longer available, other than possibly some limited read only content previously created

  1. Help info
  2. Note the contact info:
    If you have any questions, email us at help@webmaker.org, or reach us on Twitter @Webmaker.
  3. See {Aug 2015} https://blog.webmaker.org/product-update-for-appmaker-and-popcorn-maker
... As our tools evolve, we will no longer support Appmaker and Popcorn Maker. Instead, we’re focusing our efforts on Webmaker for Android, which empowers smartphone users to create local content and read, write and participate online. Both Appmaker and Popcorn Maker will remain available until Wednesday, Sept. 30, after which they will be inaccessible. We are no longer able to provide bug fixes and user support for these tools. However, users will still be able to access makes created with these tools in a read-only capacity, even after Sept. 30. To do so, visit webmaker.org/me and sign in. And as open source projects, the code for these tools will continue to be available for reuse at https://github.com/mozilla/popcorn.webmaker.org and https://github.com/mozilla-appmaker/appmaker. If you have any questions, email us at help@webmaker.org, or reach us on Twitter @Webmaker.

That does mention the code being open source and available, but I suspect if it is no longer supported, that is not going to be of much use for the typical Popcorn user.

Well this doesn't help me unfortunatlly. I need a documentation about the popcorn webmaker. How do I install it on a server and how to I work with the API. Additionally, what is the connection between popcorn.js and popcorn webmaker? How do they work together?
