+1 good question I have a pretty cool idea for HC players but would like to know if there any plans for api
+1 I would love to see data for ladder seasons
Hi , everyone! Great question!
So far there’s no answer to this question.
If that changes, we’ll share what we can as soon as possible.
If you guys are considering API options, I would love to get access to the current games list and make a web app with some filtering:
-Name (enabling a search for “cow” or “baal” etc)
-Creation time (allowing filtering of games by creation time, example: excluding games over 10 minutes old)
-Difficulty (for filtering)
-Player count (filter out full games)
Then I could make a "Copy Name’ button to put the name in your clipboard and your all set to hop in the game you just found! It can be hard to find games in the in-game list and it always seems to refresh for me at the wrong time (refreshes right when I saw one I wanted, or doesn’t refresh fast enough when I’m waiting). I know that it how the old one worked too, but it wouldn’t be too hard to make a quick website to help solve that.
Thanks for your consideration!
I would be extremely interested in this, even for a small scale friend group. It’d be great even just to see each friend’s character and level. Secondarily their stats, gear, etc. Even would be extra deep if we could access each friend’s stash!
i hope d2r api just like d3
Is there any new information about this API documentation?
This, could not have said it better. Or maybe Blizz could’ve added those options ingame when re-selling a 20y old game for 40 bucks
Just a head up to keep the topic up.
I’m a Junior Dev and would love as a personal project to work with a D2r API building a small app.
Hoping that you guys out there at blibli will release some documentation at some point
I am hoping that they do eventually get an API set up for D2R, but right now it sounds like they are putting out fires left, right, and center with the old game’s net code. I would guess that an API will be on the back burner until the game is running smoothly and they have all the kinks worked out.
It is a good sign for continued support of the game that they had good sales and huge concurrent player numbers. Hopefully there is lots more D2R improvements and support in the future and possibly some API support.
Any word on this? Not that I have any experience with APIs at all, but allowing stuff like sharing stash/character info would be really cool for those that do want to.
Something like DiabloInterface for D2R would be fantastic for speedrunners and streamers, and sharing stash info could be very useful for trading websites like diablo2io and trading Discord servers.
Perhaps it’s too early to ask right now, but maybe after 2.4 and Ladder launches and everything is stable would be a good time.
I would love to have a D2R API to request character data. Also static endpoints would be very useful to request game data that changes over patch releases.
It would be great to have an Addon API, like in WoW. It would breathe new life into the game.
Any news here?
For our community a ladder API would be very nice.
Also some Endpoints that allow run tracking or even drop tracking would be awesome aswell.
Reading our inventories via API would make muling much easier. This could also be achieved by allowing to get a local copy of the save files. We could even use these for single player if we want to.
Don’t suppose there’s been any new developments here has there?
An API for character/stash info would go a long way to facilitate trading or making useful utilities like DiabloInterface that content creators or speedrunners could use to share character info (level, gear, skills, resists, etc.) with viewers, among many other possibilities.
It’s almost been a year since your post here, don’t suppose you’ve gotten any updates regarding D2R APIs have you?
Unfortunately, I have no update for you on plans for availability of a public D2R API . We will update the forums if we hear about anything.
I appreciate the “update”, even though it doesn’t tell us anything. There’s no reason why there can’t be a public API; read-only would be fine with me. Based on the other posts, Blizzard has provided this for other games.
Is there a reason why D2R is kept in the dark? With a 20+ year-old game I would have thought it would happen open-sourced by now. Instead, we have to hack our way to making the simplest QoL changes, whereas in D2 the available mods are expansive and some are quite impressive.
Hey Korakk, thanks for the update. Unfortune to hear that, it’d be fantastic for D2R to receive API support.
As mentioned by AJGringo read-only would probably be fine for most applications I’d assume (again I have 0 experience with APIs, just a rough general idea of what they do), something like being able to export your Bnet character to the Maxroll D2R Planner if you wish to do some character theorycrafting, exporting your stash/inventory info to fan websites like diablo2. io to facilitate easier trading, creating a program similar to DiabloInterface that would allow you to share character info with people in realtime, and many other things I’m sure.
Lots of potential applications that would be awesome!
+1. It will be great to have an Item Manager like Destiny 2 has, in order to add this, Diablo needs API support.
Hope this can be done someday!
