The Crafty Clicks web service gives access to the Royal Mail Postal Address File (PAF) - allows building a postcode lookup function. The RESTful API takes a UK post code as input and returns a list of matching addresses. Responses are in JSON(P) or XML format and a Java Script wrapper is also provided. The trial is free, but subscription is needed to use on a live system.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
