Introducing the itch.io JSON API

Share this post:

Starting today, in addition to the embeddable widget and the JavaScript button API, itch.io now has a server side JSON over HTTP API for querying data about your games.

You can read the documentation on the new API reference page: http://itch.io/api/reference

In order to use the API you just need an itch.io account. Afterwards you can generate an API key to get started.

The API currently has two methods, one to fetch game data and one to fetch purchase data.

The purchase API method enables your external website to verify that a game has been purchased through itch.io, perfect for building your own game launchers and updaters.

More API methods we be added in the near future, if you’ve got any cool ideas don’t hesitate to ask!

Enjoy!
