Caches SE API responses to save on API quota
APICache is just that - an API cache. Instead of making requests to the Stack Exchange API, bots make API requests to APICache instead. APICache proxies the Stack Exchange API and caches its responses for a set period of time. This way, if two bots want the same data at similar times, only one request to the SE API is fired and only one quota decreases, instead of both taking a hit.
Parameters operate identically to their equivalents in the Stack Exchange API unless otherwise noted. Additionally, response format will be the same as the Stack Exchange API where possible, unless otherwise noted.
