Hatena Star Favorite Users API


Hatena Star Favorite Users API

The Hatena Star Favorites API (application programming interface) lets you gather information from your Favorites. As you know, Favorites are other Users who you have added Stars to within the past three months.

By going to the following page, you can access a list of all your Favorites in JSON format:


... where {USERNAME} is the Hatena ID of the user.

This feature is also compatible with JSONP. You can specify the function by defining the callback parameter in the following way:


... where {USERNAME} is the Hatena ID of the user and {FUNCTION} is the JavaScript function name to be called-back.

We hope to expand this feature in the future by providing similar APIs for other Hatena services. You will be able to compile a list of all of your Hatena Favorites at the following page.


By introducing this feature, we aim for better connection between Hatena Users.
