Is there a public API for Stack Overflow?

Hey, I was wondering if there is an API for Stackoverflow? I have seen a few "hints" at one...but I would like to stop beating 'round the bush looking for one. Any direct links would be awesomely helpful.


note: If the API doesn't use PHP, forget about it.

@Josh Caswell Yes, there are...but none of them answer it. I needed a direct link...all of them beat around the bush. I have it answered now. –  phpkido Jun 3 '11 at 23:34

Have a look at the FAQ on Stack Apps: http://stackapps.com/faq

I've never used it, but I'm nearly certain PHP can consume it.

(Note that it is currently a read-only API.)

May I suggest: a search of 'php' and 'api' at Stack Apps? –  David Thomas Jun 3 '11 at 21:24
Thanks David, squillman. Like I said, I looked around, couldn't find much. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. –  phpkido Jun 3 '11 at 21:27
squillman, I will accept your answer. Thanks for help out. –  phpkido Jun 3 '11 at 21:30
@php: I highly recommend the very capable stack.PHP API wrapper. Disclaimer: I'm one of the authors. –  uɐɯsO uɐɥʇɐN Jun 4 '11 at 6:34
Are there any R packages for interfacing this API? –  Glenn Strycker Apr 3 '13 at 13:53
