There are no source code libraries or how-to links for UrbanDictionary. If you know one why not add it?
I have a IRC script for mIRC and a Google Gadget that uses the UD API. Everything worked perfectly untill yesterday. Seems they had a big outage. Now when I try and use my API Key it returns:
SERVER: Invalid key
Since the link to get a new Key is broken it would seem like they really do not wish to support their API anymore. I can't figure out why they would revoke my key for. While my scripts get alot of usage its not THAT many hits for such a big web site....I wonder if all the testing I been doing this last week while creating a gadget has anything to do with it?
Oh well I been thinking about making my own Slang web application. This will push me to do so.
I found their new documentation site and linked to it: http://wiki.urbandictionary.com/index.php/Main_Page
