PonyAPI

Build Status

A simple API for episodes of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic to be run inside a container.

API Usage

An episode will have the following data type:

{
      "air_date": 1286735400,
      "episode": 1,
      "is_movie": false,
      "name": "Friendship is Magic (Part 1)",
      "season": 1
}

This represents Season 1, Episode 1 of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. The air_date column represents the date and time that the episode was originally shown on The Hub (now Discovery Family Network). If is_movie is set and the season number is 99, the episode record should be treated as a movie.

Usage Limits

None. Don't make the server it's running on crash and we'll all be good.

Clients

Routes

The canonical route base for PonyAPI is https://ponyapi.apps.xeserv.us. This now supports HTTP/2.0 using Caddy and SSL using Let's Encrypt. If you get SSL errors, please be sure your system certificate lists are up to date. Example usage:

$ curl https://ponyapi.apps.xeserv.us/season/1/episode/1
{
  "episode": {
    "air_date": 1286735400,
    "episode": 1,
    "is_movie": false,
    "name": "Friendship is Magic (Part 1)",
    "season": 1
  }
}

Bare Replies

As of 882b5b1, PonyAPI will accept an X-API-Options header that when set to bare will return the API replies without the episode or episodes header. Functionality is otherwise unchanged, however an error will still be shown if something goes wrong, and that will parse differently. This API will return 200 if and only if everything went to plan.

An example:

$ curl --header "X-API-Options: bare" https://ponyapi.apps.xeserv.us/last_aired
{
    "name": "Do Princesses Dream of Magic Sheep?",
    "air_date": 1436628600,
    "season": 5,
    "episode": 13,
    "is_movie": false
}

This will also be triggered if you set the query parameter options to bare.

Returns all information about episodes in the given season number or a 404 reply if no episodes could be found. To get all information about the movies shown, set the season as 99.

/season/<number>/episode/<number>

Returns all information about the episode with the given season and episode number. If the episode cannot be found, this will return a 404.

/search

This must be given a query paramater q containing the text to search for. Not including this will return a 406 reply. This will search the list of episode records for any episodes whose names match the given search terms. This is case-insensitive. If no episodes can be found, this will return a 404 reply.
