Weewar has an API now

With yesterday’s update we have also released the first official application interface (API) for Weewar.

To get started check out the (admittedly) basic documentation at weewar.com/api. You can access a lot of data already but if there is anything else you need, just let us know – we are fully committed to support your ideas.

Weewar is ready to get mashed up!

    In case you are having problems accessing the headquarters service of the API, it might have to do with a small bug we have just identified. We’ll deploy a patch taking care of this shortly.

    I’d like to know if I can become a pro user just by referring people, or if there are other ways.

    This is slightly out of place here, but I am afraid for the time being referring players is the only way to become a pro player. Check out the discussion group for more details.

    This is terrific guys! I must say the API is rather easy to use. Found a little bug—if you try to pull data for a non-existent user you get a 500 error code, e.g. try:


    Keep it coming!  It would be great to get actual access to an individual game map—e.g. what units are where, or at a bare minimum who has what units and their health.  Or how about individual moves and their outcome?  If you provided that you could create some really fun dashes very much like the existing weewar homepage.

    Hey, thanks for making your API public.  I’ve written a little app which uses the API to check for waiting games.
