Getting an API Key

Log in and fill out this simple form to request an API key.

Using your API key

Each key has an associated secret. It's called secret for a reason - anyone else who has it can pretend to be your application.

If you want to access private user data or act on behalf of users, you will need to obtain their authorization via OAuth.

You can access public data without obtaining any authorization. However, you must include your API key in every such request. Just add APIKey=your-key-here to the query string of each request URL.
