It’s time that we announce the API to the masses! What on earth is it? Well, to sum it up, it’s this thing you can write programs against to get data out of the marketplaces, to make your own custom applications and whatnot.
It’s aimed at developers, so if you’ve never written a lick of code in your life, it doesn’t matter! Move along! Nothing to see here!
We quietly announced the API a couple of weeks ago in it’s own quiet forum topic, but it was only a brief introduction. Today we “added a heap more functionality” to it, so it’s good to go.
What we’d like from you developers, if you’re so inclined to write any 3rd party applications, is to provide feedback on the type of data we’re providing. Specifically, if there is there anything else you’d like that we’re not providing.
So, here’s some required reading:
That should be enough to get you started! The forum topic doesn’t push threads into the sidebar nor the homepage, so you know you’ll have to check the topic on your own.
OK, I think that’s everything! Have fun!
Wo0t first post, lets get the apps going
Awesome!! Make sure to tell your site manager about your app so they can promote it on the blogs!
this is so damn sweet, i think my head just exploded with ideas. thanks ryan
... where’s that iPhone app already someone??! lol
Sweet! You should make a competition out of this, push the API out there, get some really novel ideas out of the developers around here…
I wish I could code cause I’d love a app that displays my items on my site. Sort of like Zazzle.
