Mod Portal API Request

Post by arielbeje »

Hello, I'm Ariel and I developed μBot, the main bot in the Factorio Discord.

The bot has a command to search for mods, and when I first made it, I could just do that through the API. Now, the only way to do such a search is to either webscrape or cache the entire mod db from /mods.

I would like to request adding the search function back to the API and possibly add tags to /mods and/or the search results.

Thanks.

The css classes of the new mod portal design are not great for scraping and an api would help us a lot! :roll:
