What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 127 Stack Exchange communities.

Currently, getting to the API page is a two- (or more) step process. The user has to first visit Stack Apps and in the rightmost column; there are links for API documentations, etc.

I think it'd be easier and more useful if the API is also listed in the footer just like Stack Exchange Data Explorer (SEDE) is provided.

Something like:

How many use the API doc? Why a link on the main page for so few users? –  juergen d Jun 14 '13 at 15:32
