After many months of development we are excited to release the all new DeviantArt API.

Getting Started

You can jump right in by visiting the developer documentation area. Additionally, you will want to read the updated authentication, errors, versioning, and pagination documentation.

Coming Soon

We will be releasing further updates to the API over time. Currently, Message Center and Notes endpoints are omitted. There are plans to include these but they will be released in line with our mobile app releases and after we have reviewed current messaging systems.

There are many new endpoints so if you find any bugs, we have setup a Github project to report any bugs and feedback can be given in the comments section of this article.

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!

Hey guys, wondering why my script… is breaking now.

Not a bug report, just wondering why calls to the MessageCenter DiFi are now breaking.

Thanks :)

(I can, and will, investigate further, but any help on your side would be kind)

I just peeked at the history and the message center DiFi hasn't been touched in a while. Must have been some other change indirectly affecting it. Without knowing your script better the best I can suggest is comparing to actual MC queries on the site.

Oh, forgive me.  It seems that my script now works.  Not sure why the "hickup", but all is functioning normally now.

Good to hear! :)

Hmm, yeah I had seen this error in Firefox 30 (alpha), but had thought it was internal.  Seems there is "some other" problem here now.  I wonder what it is.  My guess is a change in the GM API.

disregard my previous post. I just found the suggestion forum...

I don't know if this is where to give a suggestion, but I haven't found anywhere on dA yet where I can give suggestions. I am an Admin at All-World-Works , which is a very large group here on dA (almost 50,000 members). One of the things in our group that we do, is have a "submissions" folder where people dump all their artwork. Then a group of admins who are folder sorters (myself included), manually move everything to the folders they go in. Well, as you can imagine, that is rather tedious work.  I propose a feature for group administrators to be able to click on various pictures, and move it all to a different folder all at the same time. Similar to when submitting a picture to a group, people can click on several pictures to submit to a particular folder. This would make the job for group administrators way easier and more efficient. Thanks for your time!

Thought I'd drop this here in case anyone dreams in Node:

It passes back profile.username, profile.avatar to passport.js.

Half an hour ago the "simple-symbol" class was removed from the Message Center.  Is this a permanent change?  Is the "simple-symbol" class being phased out across the site?

Hi dAhub, sorry for the late response, but yes, this is a permanent change.
