coRank API v1.0 launched

Well, the coRank API is finally here!!

The coRank API (Application Program Interface) allows people to interact programmatically with any site at corank. This is the very first version of the coRank API. At this moment it provides a handful of basic calls, but there's a lot more functionality on the way. The API is already available at your coRanking site, and you can see its specific API documentation by selecting the API option in the left menu of your site.

The coRank API is available free of change, and it returns data generated by coRank in a form that can be easily integrated into an application or a website. This is the first version of the coRank API. It provides a handful of basic calls, but there's a lot more funtionality on the way. At this moment the coRank API accepts REST requests and returns the results in XML.

One thing to note is that this first version of the API is read-only. That is, you can read data from your coRanking site, but you cannot use the API to write things. In other words, you can read data from stories, users, who voted what, comments, etc. but cannot use the API to cast a vote, submit a story or a comment.

About coRank

coRank is a service that lets you create sites where you can share whatever you find interesting on the web with people who value your opinion (whether you know who they are or not), and where you can also find what's interesting from people whose opinions are important to you - whether they know who you are or not.

Everything on all coRank sites is submitted by their users, and after they submit a story, website, etc. other people will read it and give it a thumb up or down. If that story receives enough positive votes, it is promoted to the front page.
