The marketplace API was created to allow developers to create applications that pull data from the marketplace. For example one could create an application that displays your balance, or shows sales charts.

I not sure but I think he is asking why is there an API to pull forum posts… I could be wrong

if it is the case then it is to display forum post form Envato on your own site or app

For example, someone could develop an iPhone application specifically for the marketplace forums. Show new/unread messages, number of new messages, threads you start, display posts per site, make it easy to start a new thread and then choose where to post it etc…

Someone really needs to get on that actually. ;) And I want my 10% commission, please. :D

I might have a web app up for you iPhone users later then. :)

There’s only so much data you can get from the API though Scott, some of those things aren’t possible with the API at the moment by the looks of it.

You’re absolutely right, concept. You should give the developers a nudge to expand the API . I’m sure they would appreciate the ideas and the interest. I know they love seeing what you guys come up with using the API . :)

I’ve just been looking around the site, and it looks like the .atom feed could be used to get some of the data which not available from the API .

Believe me, i’ve thought of this many-a-time!!! It’s just a problem with the “authenticity_token”, and other verification issues. The dev’s will more than likely have to create an entirely new API which allows applications to change data instead of just reading it. i.e. allowing apps to reply to comments on your items, post on the forums etc.

maybe you should have a quiet word Scott ;) :D

A feature i’d like to see in the api is to be able to view which items a user has purchased (API KEY Needed of Course), aswell as how many of each licence they have purchased. This will enable us to create apps to sell on the marketplaces which require activation of some sort. I am really in need of something like this so my next item i am creating doesn’t hit all the pirate sites. :) Could you possibly mention that at all scott? ;) :)
