Curated Games News

These are the news items that I have curated during the monitoring of the API space that have some relevance to the Games conversation and I wanted to include in my research. I am using all of these links to better understand how the space is defining not just their APIs, but their schema, and other moving parts of their API operations.

These are curated as part of my daily work to understand what is happening across the space, and I regularly use them to track on what has occurred overtime, and include them in my guides, whitepapers, and other outputs.

Featured Games Companies and Organizations

These are the organizations I come across in my research who are doing interesting things in the API space. They could be companies, institutions, government agencies, or any other type of organizational entity. My goal is to aggregate so I can stay in tune with what they are up to and how it impacts the API space.

BukGet is an API for getting data about bukkit plugins. The system parses BukkitDev every 6 hours and looks for new changes in the data to update. All of this is automatic and happens without any developer intervention. If you notice any issues, we encourage you to open a ticket with us over at the issue tracker. This is the only way we can know about parser errors or issues and make any needed corrections. Below is the schedule that BukGet uses for generating the data. Keep in mind that if you update a plugin, it can take just over 6 hours for your plugin to hit the index. The API is served over both HTTP and HTTPS.
