This page documents the SkiffHack APIs. Feel free to reuse these in your apps. If you create an API add it to this page. Please support JSONP in your APIs (when dealing with public data) so that they can work cross domain!

We're using BrowserID for login so for any logged in user you will have an email. But it's not good to be passing emails around, especially in client side stuff where they might be visible to other users. For that reason you should identify users by an hex representation MD5 hash of the lower case version of their email. This is the same id that Gravatar uses, they have details here:
