jackky: The Yahoo Fantasy Baseball API

The Yahoo Fantasy Baseball API

25 Aug 2017 at 06:07am
Today, Im going to take a look at Yahoos Fantasy Sports API. If any of the details are unclear, just leave a remark and well clear em up.The Fantasy Sports API, announced on June 2, 2010, seems to be the only real published and freely available API of its kind on the internet. Currently baseball and football are included in the API, with basketball and hockey coming later around. From here well go FAQ-style.What is Mike Morgan Jersey an API?In a general sense, an API (Application Programming Interface) is really a software program that exposes functionality for other software to leverage or integrate. More specific to the net realm, APIs allow sites and applications to retrieve and Justin Hamilton Jersey post data from external services. APIs would be the glue that holds Web 2 . 0.0 together: mashup websites that incorporate a live Twitter feed or Google Map, buttons that let you like your blog post on Facebook, and similar situations are all taking advantage of APIs.So what does the Yahoo Fantasy Sports API do then?In a nutshell, this API fulfills requests for information with structured data responses. So, in case your app really wants to understand what Barry Zito did inside a specific game, or the draft results of an illusion team, it makes a call out to Yahoos API, and has got the requested data back in either an xml or json response. The information in either response Kelcie McCray Jersey format is the same and structured exactly the same way, but have different uses. Xml is a markup language and superset of html, while json is an object notation created for use with Javascript, but that could be decoded by popular programming language. The Fantasy Sports API is primarily a read-only tool at this point, but there's an API call post transactions to some team too.What information is available?Ill admit I havent fully sunk my teeth into this yet, but from reading the documentation, its mostly metadata related to Russell Wilson Jersey running fantasy leagues: draft results, team rosters, ownership status, etc. Individual player stats can be found, but which ones specifically isnt included in the documentation.Can I set it for action?Given the API was just released le s than a month ago, there Marcel Reece Jersey dont appear to be many live examples yet. The only one Ive found of the site or app using the Yahoo Fantasy Baseball API may be the Pickemfirst app, that we havent tried since I am not participating in any fantasy leagues this season. In addition, use of this API is limited to non-commercial tools and applications, which might behave as a deterrent to potential developers. The hobbyist community is capable of doing producing great things, though, so itll be interesting to see what emerges from the release of this API.
