COGS #2 by Z-GrimV
We are happy to announce the release of an improved API. After many years the api had become a little confusing and was not keeping up with changes to its backend systems. We therefore decided to redesign parts and fix some of the confusing naming and behaviour.

These changes are versioned so if you are using version prior to 20150416 there will be no change in behaviour, we plan to support the old api for around a year.

Summary of Changes

The folderid and stashid fields have been replaced by stackid and itemid respectively, this change applies to all endpoints.

These endpoints were removed and their functionality is provided by newer ones

  • /stash/folder
  • /stash/media
  • /stash/metadata
  • /stash/move/file
  • /stash/move/folder

New endpoints to manage stacks

  • POST /stash/move/{stackid} - moves stacks
  • POST /stash/position/{stackid} - change the position of a stack within a parent stack
  • POST /stash/update/{stackid} - update stack details (title, description)
  • GET /stash/{stackid} - fetch stack details, returns stash_metadata object
  • GET /stash/{stackid}/contents - list stack contents, supports pagination

New endpoints to manage items

  • GET /stash/item/{itemid} - fetch an item, returns stash_metadata object
  • POST /stash/delete - delete an item by itemid

Stash Metadata object

  • Renamed fields folderid and stashid
  • Removed is_folder
  • Replaced keywords with tags

Any problems can be reported on the GitHub Issue Tracker.

Last changes in the changelog, as well as last minor version are marked October 14th 2014, the latest journal is about Stash API from a year ago. I'd say API is temporarily abandoned.

Why is contacting you guys such a pain now? I go to contact on the bottom, click a link that leads to more links describing my situation, only to be led to some FAQs and me not being able to type out and write down my 2 cents. Why is it such a hard thing to do now? Why can't I do click click click, text box pops up and I type what I want to say.

I can answer that and I'm not in the group: be a founder/cofounder or if you aren't one of those ask one about it

Is there any way to access to the groups information (Members, Roles, Stats, Folders, etc) from the current API?
