Will there be an API to the data? I have an app idea and I want to build it!
Yes. There is an API. We just have to clean it up and publish it. Thanks for asking.
Is there an ETA?
You can get stored data directly from the website. Other deveopers have downloaded all the data and streamed from the servers.
For real-time data, I don't have an ETA right now. The team is busy with GSoC, and will stay busy at least through April. I can work on an ETA after that.
