New Favorites API gathers information from your Favorites2007-09-14 00:56:28

Today we introduced the Hatena Star Favorites API (application programming interface) that lets you gather information from your Favorites. As you know, Favorites are other Users who you have added Stars to within the past one month.

By going to the following page, you can access a list of all your Favorites in JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) format.

http://s.hatena.com/username/favorites.json

This feature is also compatible with JSONP. You can specify the function by defining the callback parameter in the following way.

Example: http://www.hatena.com/username/favorites.json?callback=callback

We hope to expand this feature in the future by providing similar APIs for other Hatena services. You will be able to compile a list of all of your Hatena Favorites at the following page.

http://www.hatena.com/username/favorites.json

By introducing this new feature, we aim for better connection between Hatena Users.

We hope you enjoy using this new feature.
