Hi all, Been following BungieNetPlatform for a while now, never really grasped the ability on how to use the API but been trying to pull data for a while now. Wondering if anybody in the community would be kind enough to give me some tips on how to get started. What I am trying to achieve is the ability to download the item manifest then manipulate and add the content to my website, trouble is I'm not too sure how to even start. I have an API key. Any help would be greatly appriciated. Thanks in Advance
The answer to this is really whether or not you have any form of programming experience. If you do, take a look at the bungie net platform wiki which has a getting started page with numerous language examples. If you haven't then the API will be of little use as to access it requires some form of programming language.
So you'll need to make an http get request to the manifest endpoint, parse the received response for the mobileWorldContentPaths endpoint you need, then make another http get request to that endpoint. That will send you a compressed SQLite db, which you'll need to unzip. After that, you access it as a normal SQLite db. What codebase is your website in? If c# I have some code you can use. You can also find some good information here: http://destinydevs.github.io/BungieNetPlatform/docs/Manifest
