Super Mario Maker Bookmark API (SMMB API) is a python scraper that makes it possible to do API like requests to the Super Mario Maker Bookmark website.

I've used BeautifulSoup in a few other projects I did, so the choice for that was quite easy. When I was finished writing the initial program, I wanted to create a web based API for everyone to use. I started looking in creating a web API for Python and quickly found Flask. I tried it out and it was super easy to port my python script to Flask! The hardest part was to set the API up on OpenShift (RedHat's free application hosting). I managed to do it, and it is now available for everyone! It's completely OpenSource, so you can host you own API, or use it directly via Python.

 

Check out https://github.com/rikels/SMMBAPI on how it works. I try to keep it as up to date as possible. If there's anything wrong, please let me know!
