This section of our site documents the application programmer interface (API) you must comply with to make requests to our service.
There are two versions of our API:
- v2.0 - HTTP + JSON
This is the current API, and is the preferred means of using our service.
- v1.0 - The legacy XML-RPC API
This is the original API which we started using in 2009. Until recently it was the only API we presented to remote clients.
The XML-RPC API will be retired in the next couple of years, until then this legacy API is still available, but we recommend all users switch to the JSON-API.
