Hello Bitcoiners and webmasters!  Smiley

I have been working on a simple web application for a couple of days now, to develop a web API that gives out Random Text Feeds about Bitcoins every time. This is some random quote or statement or hint about anything related to the Bitcoin world.

If you are not sure about what exactly it is, please go ahead and see for yourself : https://minee.herokuapp.com/feeds/api/v1/feeds/random?api_token=jRKAnoM7Cy5E82zOjGFWzSXZAoAhjQef4PThHhIlG0Y . I have a small number of feeds hosted right now.

Please note that this API is not ready for use in production, its still in it's alpha phase. However, you can go ahead and give it a try. The API is subject to change. It can't handle more requests and may go down anytime. It is under heavy development right now with more cool features and proper token system.

Where can you use this? and why?

This can be used in your own Bitcoin website. This feed can give out some interesting facts about Bitcoins to your users, which will be quite interesting for them. More features are coming up to categorize feeds according to their different levels, types, etc.

Donations are welcome:

This API is completely free to use now and forever. However, this API is hosted on my free Heroku account right now along with the database. Also, I can't move it to a dedicated domain name. So, if you are interested in helping out, please donate how much ever you can to this BTC address : 15wN6JoN2aNR5u6CPATGxqagxWLAvBV8kg

All your donations will only be used to develop and maintain the website and the service and not for personal profit.

[Edit] Why is it shown as a malware site in a few other URL scanners?

It is because the app is hosted in Heroku's free app hosting subdomain `herokuapp.com` (https://minee.herokuapp.com). Since a lot of people host their apps in that root domain, the domain itself is marked as a malicious site. So, please consider donating/helping so that the app can be moved to its own domain.

Please go ahead and let me know what you think! Smiley

This is a welcoming and brilliant idea but I am thinking that the API can post similar feeds in many websites if used and it will be a copy right issue or content duplications as you may understand it to be.
Is there any measure you are taking to check this besides I will be watching this thread closely because I also need something like this in my website.

Thanks noel.

I am not sure about the copyright issue since this content is not produced by the webmasters but by a common third party. It's like using a common service from a service provider except that it is free. Also, this content is not encouraged to be used as their main content.

The webmasters will have to register on the site first to get an API token. If they misuse the content, the token will be revoked. And all requests are being tracked. But right now, those features are under development. If you think of any copyright issues in this model, please let me know so that I can look into it.

Alright your explanations are clearer to me now. since the token will be supplied by the website there will not be one token for 2 websites.

Yeah, that's how it works. I think that's the best solution to track each site.

Absolutely, please send me PM when you are done with the programming though I will check this beta version later.

The site it perfectly secure. Right now, all it does is to return JSON data. Not sure why AutoShun shows it wrongly. :/

And regarding feeds, right now I manually enter the feeds. But I am planning to accept feeds from users too, and approve those user entered feeds before showing them to the users.

Not sure why that happened for you. That heroku app was created less than 12 hours ago. I've changed the url to `https`. Please try now.

There you go! That must have been it. It is no longer blocked when I try to access the site. Looks good, keep it going!

Hmm.. It's strange Undecided , I checked link you've already edited, you used https right. And i scanned again, the result is: https://www.virustotal.com/id/url/6831881e525e3e650d01ff36eb0bbe90446423f190b2acb2f3d8e4c6668bcfc4/analysis/1436517791/

Okay! I think I know the reason. This site is hosted on www.Heroku.com which is a PaaS provider. I am using its free plan to host the API. So, my app is hosted in herokuapp.com (https://minee.herokuapp.com). Since it belongs to the domain `herokuapp.com` and since a lot of people use it, I think the root domain `herokuapp.com` itself is shown as a Malicious site. The problem will be solved once I get cash to move the app to its own domain.

Thanks a lot for the info Smiley

And thanks noel57 and coinableS. Will keep posted in this thread.
