Introduction

NOTE: This data access feature is for developers. All are welcome to try it out; see a note on tools below

We’ve exposed all CFRP data as an HTTP accessible read-only web API, to allow developers to incorporate our dataset into other applications.

For the moment, it’s not rate limited, but do send us an email if you’re planning to use it heavily. Mostly, we’re very excited to know what you’ll use it for!
