The Truthy API provides a simple interface for accessing our data, statistics, and images using simple scripts.

Methods of access

We currently offer our application programming interface (API) through Mashape. Mashape offers modules in various languages (Java, PHP, Python, Ruby, Obj-C) that you can use to acess the API in JSON, CSV, or XML format.

Stay tuned. Join the mailing list

Get updates, have discussions, and ask any questions you might have about the API or the site in general.

Rate Limiting

We handle rate limiting via Mashape. You must sign up for a Mashape account to use the API.
