API Key Request
« on: October 28, 2019, 23:07:27 »

- Application type
Web page

- Platform(s)
HTTP

- Predicted demand, an estimation of how many requests a month you will make.
One request for each module to get the the moduleId for linking. Will be cached so no need to repeat the request.

- Commercial interest, is this a for-sale app?
No

- All applications need to be tied to a working email address, make sure your forum profile email address is correct, you can also provide an alternative privately after the application has been reviewed.
Yes

Hi,

For my web page https://modsamplemaster.thegang.nu, the idea is to index all samples in modules. As the first source I have scanned the modules from the mod archive. No modules will be available for download from my page, but it would be great to link to the mod archive for each mod.

And I plan to use the API to find the moduleid for each module md5, so that I can add links directly to your pages.

Or if possible, if I could get an list of moduleids and md5 that I can use for reference.

Hope that you think this is a good idea :).

Best Regards,
Fredrik Bergström

Hi Fredrik,
From reading the website I'm not sure the API will be the best way to solve your problem here. Maybe a simplified database dump might be more appropriate. Can you highlight which data you want to extract from the modules / API? Is this going to be a one-time thing or do you need to do this repeatedly?

Hi,

Oh, a database dump would be great. Would only need it once, as I can store the data on my side.

I would like to get the md5 and moduleId.

So that I can for each md5 that is in your database create a link directly to this site.

Superthanxs!

I'll get a dump with hashes and module IDs ready for you in the next few days then.
