USA TODAY launches public APIs
Here’s some news I’ve been itching to share for a few months: the launch of USA TODAY’s first public data APIs.
Announced today, the first two out of the gate offer access to our Best-Selling Books list and our archive of pro sports player salaries. Both data sets represent many years of effort by the database team at USA TODAY. To build these APIs, we were fortunate to team up with some great folks in our IT group. It’s been a great learning experience. We’re proud of the data and excited about opening it to the public.
About our first two APIs:
The Sports Salaries API contains annual salary information for players in Major League Baseball, the National Football League, National Basketball Association, and National Hockey League.
