The Pirate API (Pirate Application Programming Interface) is a central repository for basic information about Pirate Parties around the world. Through using the API your information about Pirate Parties will always be up to date.
It will act as a central source of information that can be kept up to date easily. By using an API everyone will have updated information when displaying it. The API enables a lot of creative uses when constructing other integrations of the information.
Give us a pull-request on Github and we will add it. Another (much slower) way is sending an email or commenting on this post. Try and provide as much additional information as possible.
Maybe. If the new category will be used by a lot of people and can be kept updated. If you want to add a new category (or sub-category) it helps if you can gather this information for as many parties as possible before asking to add it.
Everyone. Information is for sharing. Use it, develop on top of it and share back to others that might be interested.
The main usage is here at api.piratetimes.net where it is displayed as THE registry of Pirate Parties. Take a look at the API integrations for how people have used it. If you know about any usage not listed then please let us know. If you build your own integration we will add it to the list.
Great! Let us know so we can help and spread it to people that might be interested in using it! firstname.lastname@example.org
