DEV.to public API?

I've looked around and couldn't find any docs about dev.to API so I guess that it's not open for public at this point. @devteam Are there any plans on this? It would be interesting to see what can be built with data from here.

Yeah, the API has lived as a "yes we want to do it but not this week" sort of thing for a while. We're finally getting around to crafting a more official roadmap-ish thing, so we'll get a sense of when we'll do this once we come up with that.

API is live with documentation for Articles and Auth, although I believe more functionality is available.

Here's the documentation: docs.dev.to/api/#tag/articles

Here's the directory in the repo where the API lives: github.com/thepracticaldev/dev.to/...

I'm trying to use the latter to grok the thing, but without some Ruby knowledge is proving slightly difficult.

I'm trying to figure out whether it's possible to look up a user by Github username.
