A while ago I made a few personal utilities that required at least a somewhat streamlined API for fetching Bitcointalk posts. After a bit of refractoring, small corrections to the code and a bunch of added comments, I present you:

The Unofficial Bitcointalk API v0.51

  • Fetch topics from board pages and posts from topic pages or the "Recent Posts" page.
  • Get post's message*, URL, title, number in topic, creation date, author's username and profile link.
  • Quickly fetch post messages from the entire topic (other data will require additional fetching).
  • Fully commented code for developing extensions / different versions.

The message is stripped of code fields, quotes, images, links (as in URLs), smileys (replaced with a selected string) and new lines / line breaks. Feel free to create your own modification or express your interest here and I might implement it.

Installation instructions, examples and licensing info:
