Product Hunt APIs
The official Product Hunt API
The Product Hunt API is an "as simple as possible" RESTful API. We embed objects if they contextually make sense to be sent together.
You will find examples of requests and responses in the API Docs.
Just about anything! It's ideal for deep integrations into Product Hunt's platform. While we can promise to support this API even after the Hackathon, Partner integrations might disappear at any time without warning.
We only officially support this official API
Please understand that we cannot make promises the short or long-term reliability of third party APIs. We added their own support links to all of them.

Algolia Search API
Together with them we decided to release a special API Key to request the same DB directly from your tool.
Use these API Keys:
APPLICATION ID: 0H4SMABBSG SEARCH-ONLY API KEY: 9670d2d619b9d07859448d7628eea5f3 INDEX NAME: Post_production
HttpGet: https://0h4smabbsg-dsn.algolia.net/1/indexes/Post_production?query=whatsapp headers: X-Algolia-API-Key : 9670d2d619b9d07859448d7628eea5f3 X-Algolia-Application-Id : 0H4SMABBSG
- Blazing fast search for users, posts, taglines
- eg in an extension, app or anywhere you come up with
If you want to simply search for existing product submission of a specific url i would recommend you to use the official API . eg via
This is a better way to find reliably the correct post submission for an url.
Pusher's Realtime API
Our friends at Pusher build an awesome Product Hunt channel you can subscribe to using their SDKs. You can then bind to new events - eg new posts - and then simply interact with them.
To show new content automatically in your frontend (eg an extension or a widget). Btw technically they still pull new updates from our site every few minutes. So it's not real-realtime but at least you don't have to worry about polling or sending information to the browser.
