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The folderid and stashid fields have been replaced by stackid and itemid respectively, this change applies to all endpoints.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

Wouldn't e-mail notification be practical?
I'm fairly new to this site but see there used to be a script & and interface before?… How about that, or just simply the option to be notified by e-mail as well (it could bring back inactive members by reminding them? :) )

...notifications for what?
LaserraptorCoderman Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
... for a start; feedback & notes (simply put; the same events that add to the Notes & the Feedback counters on your account, the ones shown when browsing online).
Ideally one should be able to choose which events that triggers e-mail, and preferably whether to send on a per event basis, or just send i.e. a weekly summary (grouped listing of notes in one e-mail).

How about that?

That sort of defeats the purpose of having an on-site message center, doesn't it?

I'd agree maybe with the weekly summary as long as it only included unread messages. I get way to many feedback messages/notes on a regular basis to be for being notified on each. Perhaps instead a system that lets a message sit pending for at least a certain amount of time before emailing you. :nod:

Hello, is it possible to get a list of items in scraps and how? If I get things correctly, oEmbed is for single items, the API has no scraps endpoint anywhere (or I could be blind). The RSS can display it but I don't know how to construct the url to display only scraps from a specific user...

Found it, but it would be great if CORS could be enabled for RSS links.

I don't get paragraph 6 (Attribution) of the API License agreement. I have to display a license attribute on every page which uses deviantart content. But where do I get the attribute? Username + Link to the picture?
