New Download App & API V2

leave a comment »

New Download App Coming Next Week

Next week we expect to release a new version of our download app, which customers with API access can use to retrieve data from Datafiniti.  The new download app will use the V2 API and replace the current download app, which uses the V1 API.  Both download apps (and APIs) will be available for 2 weeks following the release of the new download app.  After this time, we will disable the V1 API permanently.

V2 API Documentation

In addition to the deployment of the V2 API, we will release documentation.  At first, this documentation will be a bit bare bones, but we will gradually fill it in.  The documentation itself will be open source, so users can request changes through pull requests and contribute to the documentation.

New Data

Here are a few examples of new data within Datafiniti:

  1. Approximately 200,000 hotels with room types (out of over 500,000 hotels in total)
  2. New review sources for business and product data
  3. Approximately 100,000 new or updated car product data is imported each day

New Data QC and Bug Fix Process

Our team has been discussing how to formalize a “bug fix” process for data within Datafiniti.  Next week we’ll be sketching out beginning implementation of a set process for accepting requests for data fixes from customers, issuing fixes, and notifying customers.  We’re excited to get this process in place!
