The iFixit API provides programmatic access to iFixit enabling anyone to write applications and utilities on top of the repair database. iFixit is the world's largest collection of free photographic repair manuals. The API provides access to iFixit's repair manuals (step-by-step guides and Device namespace pages) and device "area" hierarchy. It does not (yet) provide access to the parts or Answers Q&A database. The API uses RESTful protocol and responses are formatted in JSON, JSONP and XML. Underlying XML schema returned in via API is IEEE 1874 (oManual - http://www.omanual.org): learn more about this format at oManual.org. iFixit.com is powered by the Dozuki platform (http://www.dozuki.com), a documentation engine for visual instructions, which features a full-blown API in each implementation.

With you in mind, repair guide iFixit is aiming to become a platform to support all kinds of repair applications. The company has released an iFixIt API based on its user-contributed repair manuals.
