Key Description
id The skin's ID
name The name specified in the request
data The texture data

duration Duration the skin took to generate, in milliseconds
accountId ID of the account used for generation
private Whether this skin is private
views View count
nextRequest Time (in seconds) to wait until the next request

Note: The data.uuid is randomly generated but can still be used either for creating a GameProfile, or in /give commands.

Rate Limiting

MineSkin's rate limit is based on the amount of accounts available to the API. Each account is only used once per minute, so the delay in seconds is 60seconds / #accounts.

The current delay is included in every generate response, in the nextRequest field.
