How on the heels of our API first version, we’re happy to expand our API possibilities, with Write functions!

The two headlines are “oAuth 2″ and “Write functions” for matches.

oAuth 2

The oAuth 2 protocol is now available in our API, enabling authorized-type access. OAuth 2 is an authorization protocol that enables applications to gain a limited access to user data on an HTTP service.

For more information and details on oAuth 2, please check our dedicated page.

Here are the new accesses you can get:

  • Your tournaments, whatever their status (public or draft)
  • Your tournaments private data (privates notes, participants custom fields and schedules)

Write functions for matches

The first Write functions implemented into our API are match-focused. You can now update:

  • Games and matches information
  • Games and matches scores and results

For more information and details on Matches function, please check our dedicated page.

What’s next ?

We’re prepping more Write calls, such as: participants, tournaments, structures.
Next? You tell us. Which features and functions would like be added next? Let us now in the comments or on our twitter account, we’re all ears!

Our API hits Beta, want to test it?

You read it right: our much awaited API has reached private Beta!

Made for medias, video game and community developers, it will act as a solid foundation for your eSport section, retrieving rich data from the thousands of public tournaments created by our community and the featured tournaments our team covers and pushes.

Our API lets you create automated modules or an automated eSports section. This first version of our API is Read Only and compliant with REST and JSON standards. You’ll get the following information from our database:

  • List of tournaments filtered by: game, importance, dates, location

For each tournament:

  • General information and structure
  • Participants
  • Schedule
  • Matches and statistics
  • Streams and VODs

A few weeks from now, it will feature Read and Write resources, like Score Reporting. Of course, our API is free and only subject to the visual attribution “Powered by Toornament”.

To get an early access to our API, feel free to contact us at [email protected] and tell us what you’d like to build with it, we’d be happy to help!

In the meantime, you can already get an early start by checking the complete API documentation and resources guide on our new, dedicated developer site: developer.toornament.com

We can’t wait to see you use our API!
