Does the App Store have an API?



  • Specifically wondering if there would be a programatic way to generate a list of application IDs and other information about the installs available in the platform. Even just a JSON feed would be pretty cool to keep a dynamically generated list of everything available.



  • There is a public app status page at https://cloudron.io/appstatus.html which lists all the latest app versions.

    The appstore does have an API, but it was never really intended for public use, it is there to enable the Cloudrons itself to talk io it. There is also no documentation on it and we change it often as we see fit. The JSON endpoint to list all published apps can be found at https://api.cloudron.io/api/v1/apps but as said, the url and format may change without notice.



  • Cool, this is great, thanks! Even if it's not perfectly dynamic this will save me a lot of typing :)
