Client API

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.
