Question for WUBE: Is it okay to poll your website?

Post by Nidhoegger666 »

Hi,

is it okay for you if a script of mine will automatically check every 5 minutes for a new factorio update to trigger an auto updater script?

Thanks for your work, I love your game :).

Best

Markus

That's the Factorio staff. "Can I do XXX?" "Yeah, we already automatized that for you!"

Are these endpoints documented somewhere?

Thanks for this! I have a project in progress that needs to download new versions when they come out, and this will help me.

This endpoint is pretty fresh, so I don't think it's anywhere. Maybe we could put it on the wiki somewhere?

How about https://wiki.factorio.com/Download_API#Version_Listings :)
