Don't worry, Nikel API isn't going anywhere.

However, maintaining an API requires lots of work, so we are looking for maintainers for the various Nikel projects.

  • nikel-core: Written in Go. Serves the API.
  • nikel-parser: Written in Python. Parses data sources and generates datasets.
  • nikel-ts: Written in Typescript. The official Node.js API wrapper for Nikel.
  • nikel-docs: Written in Javascript + Markdown. Nikel API's documentation.

If anyone is interested in working on a web app written in Vue: nikel-app. Here is a working demo.

If you have any questions please contact us at [email protected].

It has been a while since there was an update.

Nikel's growth is starting to slow down. This isn't a bad thing! It means that users are starting to stabilize. I hope that this period of stability will allow developers to become familiar with the API. The API is only a month old now, so it'll take a little while for people to gain trust of Nikel.

Stay tuned for more updates...

What happened?

Around 10 EDT, there was a faulty commit that happened to pass continuous integration.

This caused the API to return empty responses for about 10 hours and 30 minutes to 8:30 EDT.

A fix is released and the issue is resolved.

Sorry for any inconveniences caused,
