Hacker News has made it's data available for programmatic access in near real time for iOS & Android and web-enabled devices that implement Firebase. Using the server API, calls can be made to retrieve news, updates, comments, jobs, polls, and more, all by using unique identifiers. HTTP calls will return JSON-formatted responses that include actual text from articles, titles, as well as associated metadata and URL links. Though Hacker News plans to unveil an OAuth API in the future to access user data, currently the API is free for public consumption.
The following is a list of SDKs from our SDK directory that matched your search term. Though your definition of an SDK may differ, in our world, we define SDKs as platform- specific tools for consuming existing APIs of the sort we list in our API directory. For example, the Ruby SDK for consuming the Twitter Ads API. If you think an SDK, API, or other asset is missing from our directory, be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
