Does the Stipple API cost money to use?
The Stipple API is free to use. As Stipple grows to include paid offerings, the Stipple API may grow
to include these functions, which would require a paid account to access. Any functionality that requires
a paid account will be documented with the corresponding API endpoint.
Are there any request limits to the Stipple API?
At the moment, we do not limit requests. We do ask, however, to keep the number of requests you make to it
reasonable, and make judicious use of caching. In the future, request limits may be necessary. We will
attempt to give as much advance notice as possible, but the nature of heavy load issues can prevent that.
Does the API have support OAuth?
Versions 1.X if the API authenticate via API key, using the
api_key parameter. Starting with
version 2.0, the API will support OAuth 2 instead. An announcement will be made well ahead of the switchover.
Does the Stipple API ever have downtime?
There are cases where we schedule system downtime, typically due to a data migration. Whenever possible, we
announce this ahead of time, typically via Twitter.
