Re: Programmatic access to data

Did anyone read a thread anywhere where Chris has stated why he is opposed to writing, or having someone write, an API for comicbookdb? Increased traffic means increased hosting fees. Maybe that's Chris' reason. Recorded Issues ⋅ Grand Comics Database: 1,257,285 ⋅ Comicvine: ...

Re: Programmatic access to data

Figure this might be worth a bump. It would be great to see an API on this site.

Re: Programmatic access to data

Chris will have the ultimate say in this, but the standard answer has been there are no plans to open up an api or webservice to Comic Book DB data. This may have changed, but more then likely the answer is not at this time.

Re: Suggestion: API

Hi, I'm a huge fan of the site, and I'm also a developer. I've been working on a software that could take use of that API, too. It's a pity that Chris doesn't want to do it.

Also I wanted to share with you that comics.org is looking for volunteers to work on their API, so all of you are invited.

Comic Vine.com?

... totally sure if it is a social network or catalog site like cbdb. Has anyone used the site or have any opinions? Looks like it has a pretty robust API to give you full access to their database, that could be cool.

... CBDB admin with the authority to comment), If you don't mind divulging the information, what exactly is the reason CBDB doesn't want to create an API? With the flurry of web applications around, CBDB could easily corner the market on the management and sharing of comic book collections. If the ...

Kind of curious as to what the limitations are for not having an API? Is it development resources...time, people, $$? Comicbookdb.com is awesome...and it would be great to have it be THE authoritative resource for all comic book data. Making it a tad easier ...

My apologies. I guess I rolled out my Jump To Conclusions Mat a little too early. Also, sorry to beat the dead horse about API support. I guess it just seems so perfect that a lot of the users can't believe it's not happening. I still use and support this site for what it is. I'd just ...

As mentioned repeatedly before, there is no API for the site, nor are there plans for one. With the exception of creators and podcasts who we give very limited free access to display things on their website as discussed in other threads in the ...

API dredged back

... some time back there was a huge plea for donations... a plea I answered whole-heartedly). Those ads are, I feel, a BIG reason there are no API plans. For instance, the Intelliscanner company proudly boasts comicbookdb.com integration. Read-only for that matter!?!? The only thing I can guess ...

Have you ever considered creating an API so that data can be retrieved in XML or some other format? Then creators could use the data on their website without having to have a custom page written. Just grab the XML with the appropriate API call/query and use XSLT to create the HTML.

How do they do that?

How are the comic book creators using their entries on their webpages? Is there an API of sorts or are they pulling the HTML and scraping it to get the data?
