ZEIT is one of the biggest German newspapers. They have recently launched the ZEIT ONLINE Content API. The API gives developers access to hundreds of thousands of ZEIT articles and their corresponding metadata ranging back to 1946. Information that can be accessed by the API includes author search, articles, newspaper departments, keywords, products and series. The API uses RESTful calls and responses are formatted in JSON.
At the beginning of the year we were wondering "how many newspapers have an API". Now it is at least one more, and even more exciting - it is an international one! DIE ZEIT, the market leader among Germany’s weekly newspapers, is entering the API world by launching the beta phase of its ZEIT ONLINE Content API.
