Punkrock.org is a online social hub for information about punk rock music. The community offers access to a variety of media (videos, pictures) community polls, personal and band blogs, current event listings, forums and an avenue to promote your band through the site. The social aspect of the site allows you to "like" favorite bands and tracks as well as groups and businesses involved with the community.
Using POST and GET calls, The Punkrock.org API allows developers an opportunity to create apps for the community that access site held information about: users, friend, mail, notifications, and photos. You need to request an API token for access to services. Returns are formatted in JSON.
Of the many APIs we published last week, eleven were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those eleven, which included the in2era API. in2era is a web service for selling ebooks through online distributor. The in2era API allows developers to manage subscriptions to educational content, logo branding functionality, and the ability to handle transactions in the desired language and currency of choice. Online distributors take a small fee. To learn more about the in2era API visit the in2era site as well as the in2era API blog post.
The Punkrock.org API uses POST and GET calls that allow a user of your app to access their own user info on Punkrock.org, including friends, mail, notifications and allows them to upload photos. Requesting an API key is required for access to services.
