Introducing the EveryBlock partner APINov012010
Today we’re announcing the EveryBlock partner API — a new way for our content partners to deliver neighborhood news at the level of neighborhood or city block.
This API is designed to provide you with raw access to the latest neighborhood news on EveryBlock, across Chicago. Read our documentation to learn more.
If you have any feedback on this API, or if you’d like an API key, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. This is a “firehose” API that delivers up to 24 hours of news items across our 16 cities. Since we deal with a diversity of news that vary in kind and format from city to city, this API is intended to serve partners with heavy-duty needs and who can devote a goodly amount of development time to work with the data.
A lighter-weight alternative to the API are the EveryBlock widgets. The widget allows you to configure simple copy-paste code to embed relevant local news on your Web site. You can select a widget to show just crime, or building permits, and so on.
