Hi everyone!

Just a heads up that we’re doing redirects away from www.[domain].net, to not use www. It’ll help us consolidate our google search junk.

If you were logged in to www and not logged in to the non-www, it’ll automatically log you out of www and log you in to non-www.

If any of that makes sense, then good! If not, don’t worry! It’s all handled.

Hi everyone!

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!

Hi everyone!

We’ve deployed an update to the API , the most significant things we’ve added are:

  • New data sets
  • Self-documenting release info (it’s pretty sweet)!
  • Public data sets (i.e. popular files, new files, etc)

So, first of all, we’ve got documentation of the public and user (private) data sets, you can see it here:

http://marketplace.envato.com/api/documentation

It actually uses jQuery to pull the information from the API itself, and then print the output, check out the source! The TTL is how many seconds the data is cached for (i.e. if you hit it 10 times in a minute and the TTL is 60, you’ll get the same data).

By popular demand, we’ve got public API feeds, so you can do things like make different kinds of homepages, notifiers on new files from particular sites/categories, the possibilities are endless!

Also, some of the sets require parameters, so for example, when it says you need a site parameter to get the popular files for GraphicRiver, you’d do this:

http://marketplace.envato.com/api/edge/popular:graphicriver.json

To get Collis’ new files off ThemeForest:

http://marketplace.envato.com/api/edge/new-files-from-user:collis,themeforest.json

So there you go! The API returns error messages in JSON or XML format, where it can.

So there! I’ll post more info tomorrow! Feedback is appreciated!

Also, if you want a nice way to ‘look’ at the data that the API returns, you can paste the JSON into this tool here, and it’ll make it easy to read:

http://chris.photobooks.com/json/

Cheers!

Awesome!

In the next couple of days I’ll be pushing out a bunch more data sets, plus a heap of public data sets (by popular demand!), so you’ll be able to make things that don’t require people’s API keys!!!

OK, enough ripping on this guy. This has all since been resolved.

I’m locking this thread.

Hey David!

Yes, the cash that you’re spending from your account is always the first to expire, so it is as you’ve described.

Also, if you have earnings from sales or referrals it’ll spend your deposits first (which you can’t withdraw) before it starts spending your earnings (which you can withdraw).

So there you go!

Hey fifty_tons, you could use http://dropsend.com to send the large file. You get 5 free sends a month up to 1gb per send, so that’d help out in this situation.
