Opening the Search API

Posted by JeremyGThomas on Nov 6, 2009 5:15:51 PM

I'm happy to announce that we've opened the API that powers, the solution scheduled to become the new Search engine behind in the coming months.  By opening the API we're hoping developers will think of interesting ways to use and mashup our data.  The API provides programmatic access into our core directory of assets, including:

  • Events
  • Classes
  • Tournaments
  • Training Plans
  • Race Results
  • Articles


While this data was already available before through the Asset Syndication API, it is now possible to conduct relevancy-based searches based on keywords.  Plus, the new Search API is fast and allows for a variety of output formats including:

  • XML
  • HTML
  • RSS
  • JSON


The Search API is documented at  Signup for access on, we'll approve your application and get you going.  And let us know what you think of the API, either by commenting on this blog, in our API forum, or by sending a tweet to @jgrahamthomas.
