Programming Quotes API

It wouldn't be a very good programmers resources if it didn't have an API now, would it?

You can request a JSON feed for all quotes, popular quotes and each individual quote. The results can be returned as JSONP by supplying a callback query parameter.

To get the full list:

      GET http://quotes.stormconsultancy.co.uk/quotes.json

That will give you an array of quote objects like so:

      [
        { id: 1, author: "Anon", quote: "Lorem ipsum..." },
        { id: 2, author: "Anon", quote: "Lorem ipsum..." },
        ....
      ]

Popular Quotes

To sort the collection by popularity, request:

      GET http://quotes.stormconsultancy.co.uk/popular.json

Single Quote

For an individual quote, request:

      GET http://quotes.stormconsultancy.co.uk/quotes/1.json

This will give you a single object for the quote:

      {
        id: 1,
        author: "Anon",
        quote: "Lorem ipsum....",
        permalink: "http://quotes.stormconsultancy.co.uk/quotes/1"
      }
