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The folderid and stashid fields have been replaced by stackid and itemid respectively, this change applies to all endpoints.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

When DT finishes making a brand new DeviantArt feature, or just fixes a bug, we first run it on our top-secret staging server. When everything's ready to go live, we sync it!

It's us ;) Our icon has 2 layers combined through css.

Wow. Does the file itself have css or is the css file on deviantART site or is it on this page? When I use it as an icon, it still has background. :icondt:

It's part of the site css, so it works everywhere.

Hi, my normal username is Neko-Ryuu, and I have been unsuccessful in trying to log in to that DA account for the past 2 days after being randomly logged out. I was wondering if you could fix this? I've tried changing passwords, but apparently that does nothing.
