New API calculates the total number of Stars added to your blog

We have added an application programming interface (API) that will compile information from your blogs registered with Hatena Star.

By entering a URL like the example below, you can retrieve information from your blogs using JSON (JavaScript Object Notation).


JSON will retrieve data from your blogs and compile it in the following way, displaying your blog title, URL, and the number of Stars received.

  "title": "Hatena Star Diary",
  "star_count": "72017",

This will also be compatible with JSONP by adding a callback parameter.


This API, which retrieves the number of Stars added to a blog, has been introduced on a trial basis. We will be making adjustments and adding other applications dependent on how this feature is utilized.

We hope you enjoy using this new feature.
