The service interprets data from the Unihan Database to encode text in Chinese characters. Its function emphasizes interpretations common in Mandarin Chinese, but it can draw upon information from the supporting database about Cantonese, Japanese, Korean, and Vietnamese encoding. The character range available is the ~21,000 characters within the range identified as CJK Unified Ideographs.
API methods support submission of a query specifying the subset of characters of interest with filters to narrow the return. Methods return Unicode values for the character(s) matching the query. Methods also can return the strokes making up the character(s) and pronunciations.
The following is a list of historical changes that were made to this asset. Typically, once an API is published on ProgrammableWeb.com, the data we keep about that asset gets updated over the course of its life. For example, the endpoint or home page of the documentation might change. As a means of enforcing the integrity of our data, every time a non-trivial change is made to the data we keep about an asset, we require the entry of some changelog text before that change can be saved. This way, we have a great audit trail of all activity surrounding the asset. For each asset, the changelogs begins with the moment an asset is approved for publication on ProgrammableWeb. If you spot an error in our data and believe that a record needs to be updated in some way, the ProgrammableWeb team would very much like to hear from you at email@example.com
So far, we don't have a record of any changes to this API
