The Guardian Open Platform is the suite of web services that make it possible for our partners to build applications with the Guardian. We've opened up our platform so that everyone can benefit from our journalism, our brand, and the technologies that power guardian.co.uk. The Open Platform currently includes the Content API. With the API, users can query our content database for articles and get them back in formats that are geared toward integration with other internet applications. Methods are available for content, tags, sections, and single item.
Developers wanting to create apps for news hungry users need to find the correct APIs to make that happen. They should start their search in the News Services category of the ProgrammableWeb API directory. Check out the 11 most popular News Services APIs based on user ProgrammableWeb traffic.
