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The folderid and stashid fields have been replaced by stackid and itemid respectively, this change applies to all endpoints.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

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.

How do you kick out admins from groups?

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?

What about an unofficial API? dA-Droid
alfonsomarin Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2015
What about it? For what I read in your page  and what da-Droid does. It does nothing that I'm asking for, or at least it doesn't say anywhere  that it does.

Thanks for the offer anyway.

I have written several pieces of code to interact with DeviantArt and DiFi, which without them none of dADroid's functionalities would work either.

Therefore, I'd like to provide an API which other developers can use in order to make their job simpler.

Also, since I plan to make dADroid open-source after a while and release the code to public, other programmers could include it as a class to simplify their process. dADroid will be released as PHP, JavaScript, Python and Java variants.

If you need a dA API which doesn't exist, or does not satisfy your needs, you could note me with the functions you need, so I can add them to the dADroid.

Hope this helps.
